Description

VINTAGE PORTRAIT SESSIONS USING THE WET PLATE COLLODION PROCESS. 

Venue – The Chanonry, Cathedral Street, Dunkeld, PH8 0AW.

 

If you are interested in being one of the subjects and having your photograph taken, please get in touch with the Archive at archives@historicdunkeld.org.uk  /  01350 727786.  There will be a charge of £50 for this opportunity.

 To celebrate the Dunkeld Living History Event we will be hosting Victorian portrait sessions as it was practiced by the pioneers of photography in the 1850’s.

Each photographic portrait session will last approx. 30 minutes where you will witness the whole process from setting up the camera to watching the final photographic plate being developed.  It’s quite a magical process seeing the image slowly appear in the chemical bath.

Invented by British scientist Frederick Scott Archer in 1851 the wet plate collodion, or Tintype as it is often known, was the first ever widely available photographic process and formed the foundation of photography as we know it today. 

 

This is a unique opportunity to experience  stepping back into the history of this truly wonderful photographic process.
