The orotone is a warm-toned positive transparency printed and developed on a thin, clear sensitized gelatin glass plate from an ordinary negative and toned to a sepia color by bleaching. The orotone’s most definitive feature is the brilliancy it receives from the gold-colored varnish that is applied by brush or flowed on to the emulsion side of the glass plate after development and toning. The gold-colored varnish or veneer consists of bronzing powders mixed with a varnishing liquid (typically bronzing liquid [alternately known as banana oil] or lantern slide varnish). An orotone’s shimming warm glow is viewed through the clear, non-emulsion side of the glass plate.

This series of portraits were made using the wet-plate collodion process, an early form of photography first pioneered in the 1840s by Frederick Scott Archer. Images are made using silver, glass and lots of patience.
One of the coolest additions to this year's 99% Conference was an incredible TinType Photobooth presented by Pentax, where photographer Michael Shindler shot portraits of speakers, staff, and attendees. Made by hand on 4" x 5" metal plates, tintypes are unique images that capture the intensity of the individual personality in the tradition of 19th-century photography.
