In August I spent three weeks in Medellin, Colombia visiting my brother-in-laws family. It was a breath of fresh air. Lots of lazy mornings, lap swimming, learning to salsa dance at family parties and enjoying great food!
Here's another recently produced tintype of Jennifer Almaguer. I poured three plates for this session. After the first plate I remixed a fresh developer and started getting better results. I really need to keep track of the shelf life on the chemistry. This is the final plate from our four hour session.
I recently produced this tintype of my friend Nicole Haagensen. It takes about an hour to produce each plate and I'm still struggling with this process. Immediately after I develop, fix and rinse I shoot these with my dslr to preserve the image. Sometimes as soon as 30 minutes later the my plates are developing black spots. I know I'll need to mix fresh chemistry soon to get my plates archival again. The trick is finding out which chemistry is causing the problem.
