Ambrotype photography is a photograph that creates a positive image using the wet plate collodian process. It first came into use in the early 1850’s. The ambrotype was much less expensive to produce than the daguerreotype. In 1854 James Ambrose Cutting, of Boston, took out several patents relating to the process and maybe responsible for coining the term ‘ambrotype’.
