FILM IS NOT DEAD AT ALL! MICHAEL SHINDLER
Posted on April 17, 2014 by Isabella Cecconi
On his webpage there are just few words to describe his work: Tintypes made by the authentic wet-plate collodion process. Camera formats from 4×5 to 14×17. Based in San Francisco.
Minimal description for an amazing project and place. In fact, Micheal Shindler opened in 2011 the world’s first Tintype portrait studio. The process of tintypes photography is delicate and requires skills. Tintype was first introduced in the 1850s, over a hundred and sixty years ago. The process takes around ten minutes and is delicate and messy. One slip-up and you’ll have to do the whole thing all over again. I guess it’s time to go to Frisco and have a portrait..
