Our space offers an incredible natural light studio which was typical of the era, as well as modern strobe options for creating tintype portraits. We also have ‘The Darkroom Gallery’ with pieces on display and sale created by Daniel Leocadi. There is a relaxation area for customers to enjoy in between longer photoshoots. Lots of our customers are curious about what goes on in the darkroom, and in our old space we could not accommodate them. Now you can join us in the darkroom as part of the experience of having a tintype portrait taken, which is well worth watching!
In addition to the tintype portrait studio we also have created a camera obscura to demonstrate the fundamentals of light and understand how a camera actually works! No technology needed! Our guests are welcome to experience the camera obscura during the daylight hours. This is great way for customers to get a better understanding of the process.
