Tintype Man
(2:50 p.m.)

As much as he loves shooting with his 35mm camera, Robb Kendrick's true passion has become wet-plate photography, a historical photo technique used during the mid-19th century that produces tintypes. Each photograph created with this process is one of a kind, handmade from start to finish. In this brief television segment from the Texas Country Reporter, narrator Bob Phillips interviews Kendrick who demonstrates his working style.
