Take a step back into the past when you visit Hip Xiong, a photo studio that produces old-school wet-plate tintype portraits — much like the ones that were popular in the 1850s. Using modern equipment and refined techniques, owner Ryan Lee revives the charm of a medium that predates film, blurring the lines between alchemy and photography.
The studio does solo, couple, and group portraits of up to five people, and you get to witness first-hand the development of your own pictures after. The old-school interior will have you feeling like you’ve traveled back in time the moment you step in, so all in all it’s an immersive experience that’s truly worth a try. To make your portrait look more authentic, dress up in your most retro-looking ensemble the day of your visit!
It's a refreshingly novel experience with a unique end product that you can keep for ages to come.
Anyone who adores vintage products and the feeling of nostalgia.
Pets and children under the age of five are not suitable for a wet plate shoot. Contact Hip Xiong Photo Studio for more information.
