Photos of celebrities at Sundance taken with a vintage camera

Instead of using a fancy-pants camera to capture celebrities at Sundance, photographer Victoria Will used a very old technique of photography known as tintype.

This is when a photo is made by ‘creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of metal coated with dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the photographic emulsion’. Got that? And instead of waiting 8 minutes for each photo to develop, Will used high-powered flash heads ‘that put out enough light to do the pictures almost immediately’.

Here’s what Victoria Will said of the process: ‘What I love about the process is how raw it is. We live in an age of glossy magazines and overly retouched skin. But there is no lying with tintypes. You can’t get rid of a few wrinkles in Photoshop’.
