Authentic photography by the agency of light.

Orotone

ALBUMEN GLASS PLATE POSITIVES
a basic manual

Hold an orotone in your hand and let it catch the light, you’ll see something magical. The  image comes to life with an iridescent shimmer that is singularly beautiful. That’s why I love them and that’s why I invest my time and effort in crafting such wondrous treasures.

The orotone is truly a unique hand-crafted image that elevates the traditional two-dimensional photograph to a higher plane. The beautiful depth is intensified by the lustrous radiance of the orotone transforming the rendered subject into something quite ethereal.

This manual details my process and guides you in creating albumen glass plate positive orotones.
