    Saw it. Looks hard! 'Nuff said.

    So cool. I got myself signed up for a wet plate workshop next month, I'm pretty stoked to try it out

    If only I were 200 years old, I could regale you all with stories of when tintypes were the newest scientific technology. 200 years after Star Trek comes true, hand-recorded tricorder scans will be yet another artistic alternative process...

    She has been making 16x20 plates for the last months. Quite talented and hard working photographer.

    I saw it. But there's been tintype going on all along by somebody. Thirty years ago I even ran into a little country convenience store that marketed tintype kits! - along with many other unusual things. The owner was into it himself. My family has quite a few old ones, including naked Indians in front of bark
    huts, with a mtn in the background which I managed to positively identify despite the Petzval distortion.
