Here is a 4x5 tintype of my husband's creation, the distance measuring robot. This guy rolls around on his three wheels until he smacks into a wall. When he does, he looks left then right, measures the shortest distance between the two, calibrates for the new direction, and wheels off to the next!

Captured with Calumet 4x5 with 210mm lens. The case was restored; first painted black, then bound with a satin ribbon. The matting was newly silver leafed and new glass was cut to fit the case.

Tintypes in Balboa Park
Saturday morning I woke up early with the itch to get out into the park to make some tintypes. My loving husband was sweet to groggily drive me up to the park and help answer the questions of the many heads that popped up to ask about the type of camera we were using and 'what is a tintype?' These two were my favorite of the morning.
Reflections of the Botanical Garden, 2012
Shadows in the corridor, 2012
The original photograph is a faded paper print, circa 1950. It is so badly faded that there was little image to be had. Some parts of the image I airbrushed in to create detail, especially in the faces. I then created a newly restored slide and tintype. This metal photograph is one of three, sent as a gift to each one of the little kids in the original.

Tintype film cassette button pins!
Wow! Just try to say that five times fast! I made a new batch of tintype button pins, plated by recycling old film cassettes and then exposing one at a time in camera. You can purchase one of your very own for $15 through my
web store, or you can purchase in person at the MOPA gift shop!

Last year I photographed Rachel and Fred's wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony at the Alcazar garden in Balboa park. Surrounded by family and friends, they exchanged vows and promises of a new life together. For their first anniversary, we made a framed photograph for Fred, and we then took that same image and created a digital tintype of the special moment for Rachel. These digital tintypes can be made from almost any image! Click here to get started uploading your own.
