Isn't it hard to stand still!? Last weekend Jack and his parents came by the studio to pick up some work. I had my portable darkroom set up outside so we made a tintype in the traditional style. Traditional in that there were no strobe lights! For this tintype Jack stood on a stool with his toy monkey for 5 seconds while I held open the lens. The bit of movement that we captured in this photograph reminded Jack's mom of an old image of her father at the same age. I feel like we froze a moment of Jack's childhood with this shot, albeit fuzzy like far away thoughts of our own childhood memories.
