I’m not dead, just busy (and adapting to spending more screen-time at work than previously).
This is a tintype I made of my friend Eric for his birthday in August during a workshop at CAP, my new place of work. Pretty sweet stuff.
The process was shockingly instant (after you learn to mix the chemistry, successfully coat the plate, not screw it up while putting it into/removing it from the wet-plate modified camera back) - it develops in just a few seconds. The polaroid of the 1800’s.
