"The Real Tintype, Not the App" - TDS Photography Podcast 671

This is The Digital Story Podcast #671, Jan. 22, 2019. Today's theme is "The Real Tintype, Not the App: An Interview with Jeremiah Flynn" I'm Derrick Story.

Opening Monologue

Tintype photography dates back to the 1850s. And in the hands of today's capable artists, it's still alive. For some folks, their knowledge of Tintype is confined to an app on their smartphone. But the actual process is fascinating, and today, we'll chat with a true Tintype photographer, Jeremiah Flynn, to learn more about this wonderful art form.

The Real Tintype, Not the App: An Interview with Jeremiah Flynn


I grabbed by portable recorder and visited Jeremiah Flynn at his place, Jeremiah's Photocorner in Santa Rosa, CA. His Tintype studio is there as well. If you want to see samples of his Tintype work, jump over to JeremiahFlynn.com.

I hope you enjoy learning about this incredible photographic artform from one of its accomplished technicians. We chat about other related topics as well.

TDS Workshops Update

Joshua Tree Update

Our Spring workshop in the high desert is sold out. But but I promise that we'll share reports from the event.

San Francisco Street Photography Workshop

I think after 5 great seasons, this workshop has run its course. At the moment, I don't have enough deposits to move forward with the event, so I'm going to cancel it. Thanks to everyone who has made this event one of my favorites!

Sonoma Coast Workshop Update

I've secured a beautiful home for us just south of Bodega Bay. This will serve as our headquarters during the event. There's plenty of room for our classroom and presentation work, plus beautiful areas for relaxing, and even sleeping accommodations for those who wish to stay there.

If you do want to join us July 17-19, and I hope you do, please visit the Workshops Signup Page and place your $100 deposit. That will secure your ability to attend when official registration begins later this month. You can also read more about the event on the TDS Workshops page.
