Learning The Tintype Process PDF Print Email

One of the highlights this summer for me was learning the tintype process. This process was one of the earliest photographic processes invented, pre-dating film and was widely used during the Civil War.

Several photographers and assistants have died while working on this kind of photography. The chemistry involves highly flammable chemicals and deadly potassium cyanide is used as a fixer. Keeps one on his toes that's for sure.

July 4th: Trying Something New PDF Print Email

This year, my cousin and I visited Newton Park to shoot some photos and attempt to do a video. We actually tried going to a fair on the 3rd, but they were sold out of tickets. We tried to pay them, but because they didn't have the tickets, we weren't allowed in.

Anyway, we missed out on the 3rd but got a 30 minute show on the 4th. Shooting video and photos simultaneously was a nice challenge. Here are my results from that night.



Published in the New York Times PDF Print Email

This afternoon, Frank called me up and said, "Joe, we're in the New York Times!".

Frank and Megan were married yesterday at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Notre Dame and I photographed their wedding day. The photo at the top of the article was taken at a mansion in Mishawaka, Indiana during their engagement session.
