Tintype Photography

Photographer Michael Shindler
Tintype photography, also known as ferrotype and daguerreotype, is produced by making a direct positive on a sheet of metal (in this case, black enamel coated aluminum).
Photographer, Michael Shindler, in his San Francisco studio (Photobooth) creates tintypes for walk-in customers. 
Created much the same as tintypes of the mid-1800s, the contemporary presentation harkens to the past as process superimposes past and present.
The process is described in this video produced by cool hunting.
