Melton Original Portraits

About

7th & 8th March 2015

Final session.

If you missed them the last time - do not fear - the Meltons are back! Shooting tintypes and positive paper portraits of the people of Nottingham and beyond!

Melton Original Tintype Portraits use the same materials and techniques of Frederick Scott Archer and other 19th Century photographers. It is a totally handcrafted process and we create for you a historical document that will last forever – far longer than a traditional photograph or digital image. The photographs are a unique blending of subject matter and photographic technique. Part craft and part theatre. In fact they could be considered to be photographic sculptures because each one is individual and unique.

Our Melton Original Positive Paper Portraits mix traditional darkroom practice with modern materials to create a unique and individual object that will be treasured by all. Using the same large format technical camera that produces our captivating tintype images, we use a special photographic paper that once processed yields a direct positive image – no negative involved – in luxurious rich tones of black and white.
