A Tintype (also known as a Ferrotype) is a photograph made on a thin piece of metal. One side of the metal is coated black to create contrast. This is the side the photograph is taken on. These are one of a kind artifacts because there is no negative, so no way to make duplicates. The image “struck” on the metal is a reverse image.
At H.H. Bennett Studio & Museum we provide two options for an authentic historic lens to capture your one-of-a-kind image that will last a lifetime.
