Internationally known artist David Emitt Adams will make tintypes during a special portrait session event Friday, Nov. 11, and Saturday, Nov. 12 at Art Intersection, 207 N. Gilbert Rd., Gilbert. An appointment is required.

A session, which lasts 30 to 45 minutes, includes an exposure time up to 5 seconds, so subjects must be able to hold a pose, without moving. One to three people can be in the photograph, but pets are not permitted.

The tintype image is captured on a 4-inch by 5-inch aluminum plate. An additional 30 minutes after needed after the session for the plate to dry, or the tintype can be picked up the next business day.

A session includes only one tintype and does not include retakes unless there are clear issues with the image. Retakes are done at the discretion of the photographer.

Because tintypes are unique and cannot be reproduced, a second plate must be purchased, for $45, if two tintype portraits are wanted from the same session. Also, a high-resolution scan of the portrait can be made and emailed for $25.

To make an appointment, call 480-361-1118 or email info@artintersection.com.
