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!

Jennifer - Tintype

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.

Nicole - Tintype

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.
