Tintypes revisited, explained: Aug. 2

  • 7 p.m., Aug. 2
  • UNTHSC Research and Education Building, 3500 Camp Bowie
  • Scott Hilton and Bryan Wing discuss tintypes and Project Barbatype

Travel back to the 19thCentury era of tintype photography with Project Barbatype collaborators Scott Hilton and Bryan Wing at our 7 p.m. Aug. 2 program.

The two will bring their view camera and will explain how to make a tintype. They also will bring other original tintype plates for us to view.

The tintype process changed photography by allowing the creation of a finely detailed negative, according to the Amon Carter Museum’s Guide to Photographic Processes. Tintypes (also known as ferrotypes) use a chemical process on a thin enamel-coated plate. Tintypes were common from 1854 through the 1920s.

Project Barbatype is a photo project that records men and women in beard and mustache contests in tintype formats. Scott, a faculty member at UT-Arlington, and Bryan, a photographer and former competitive bearder, use their shared interest in tintypes to record contest participants: “We render them immortal with the alchemy of authentic hand-made 19th century tintype photography, fixed for all time, that future generations might view their majestic visage.”

The program will be in our usual meeting place: UNTHSC, 3500 Camp Bowie Blvd. Our meeting room is in the Research and Education Building at the corner of Clifton Street and Camp Bowie. You may enter the free parking lot and go to the lower level to find Room 100, Everett Hall.

Discover the Zone System: Aug. 9

Have you ever heard a judge use the phrase “the blacks aren’t black enough and the whites aren’t white enough?” Master* photographer Jeffrey Heyer will explain what the judge might be thinking at an Aug. 9 workshop about the zone system and black and white photography.

This workshop is geared to those who want to photograph in black and white but aren’t sure how to process the image. We will investigate the Ansel Adams zone system, above, and see how our image fits within that system.

Jeff is a member of the club’s competition committee and a frequent award winner in club competitions.

The workshop will be at 7 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 9, in the club’s meeting location: 3500 Camp Bowie. Our meeting room is in the Research and Education Building at the corner of Clifton Street and Camp Bowie. You may enter the free parking lot and go to the lower level to find Room 100, Everett Hall.
