Photos from the Past, Today! Ag RXN Photography’s Tintype Photo Booth


The distinct look and style of tintype photography embodies our image of history. Tintypes had there heyday in the mid 19th century and captured the Civil War, scenes from the Wild West, and much more. While tintypes began to fall out favor in the 20th century, some contemporary photographers are still use this old-school technique.


In the early 19th century, tintypes were most commonly made by photographers working open air fairs and carnivals. Ag RXN Photography’s Tintype Photo Booth harkens back to that tradition using the same techniques photographers used nearly 100 years ago.


Visitors to the San Jose Mini Maker Faire will have a chance to have their own tintype portraits taken at the Tintype Photo Booth from Ag RXN Photography and learn how these amazing photos are made!

Come out Sunday, September 6 from 10:00am-6:00pm and check out the Tintype Photo Booth for yourself! For tickets visit:
