Wet Plate Tintype Photography

MERMAID
 These are 4x5" tintype photographs. Printed on actual pieces of metal. you first have to put a film (collodion) on the metal than soak them in silver nitrate for 5 mins, than expose to light and develop.
TREE

 The are extremely fun but somewhat time consuming. Not like today's digital work! But the details are excellent and the satisfaction of taking photos and developing them yourself is like no other! The smells of all the chemicals can be a tad overwhelming but worth it!

HAYSTACK
This last image is of me with a VERY old (1920's) camera with an even older lens that can be used to take photos with these metal plates. This was the most exciting class I ever took in college, and will go and retake the course again soon, I love working in old and exciting mediums!
