Preserving Memories with the Wet Plate Collodion Process
— Tintype Artist Craig Murphy
QUEENSBURY, NY, UNITED STATES, April 22, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Glens Falls Art is excited to announce a new service that combines modern technology with the historic art of wet plate collodion photography. Customers can now have their favorite digital images, such as cherished pet or wedding photos, transformed into authentic tintypes using 19th century methods.
This innovative service is offered by Glens Falls area fine art photographer Craig Murphy, who is passionate about preserving memories with the time-honored wet plate collodion process. Invented by English artist Frederick Scott Archer in 1851, wet plate collodion photography was the predominant method for capturing images between 1850 and the early 1880s. There has been a recent resurgence of interest in this photographic method, as people are fascinated by the history and science behind these priceless keepsakes.
Customers can simply send their chosen digital image to Craig, who will then use his expertise to create an authentic tintype. “By merging modern technology with this historic art form, I create heirloom-quality tintypes that preserve cherished memories and celebrate the craftsmanship and legacy of this timeless technique.”, explains Craig Murphy. During the process, collodion is poured onto a plate of thin metal or glass, sensitized in a silver nitrate solution, exposed in the camera, and developed while still wet. The result is a one-of-a-kind, heirloom-quality image that can be cherished for generations.
Craig travels with his Glens Falls Art® mobile tintype studio throughout upstate New York, capturing stunning portraits and scenic views using this historic photographic method. These unique, archival-quality images are not only a testament to the art and tradition of wet plate collodion photography but also a valuable family heirloom that can be passed on to future generations.
