    After doing a lot of research into tintype photography, I'm finally going to do it.

    If anyone has any tips and experiences please throw them my way. I plan on documenting the entire process. The next part of this project is building vertical developing/sensitizing trays. I saw another video where the photographer used red plexiglass for his trays. I plan on making my own.

    I also need to have an extremely bright lighting setup. The lens I have is a f3.5 on my Graflex XL.

    I'm in the middle of building a 4x5 back for the Graflex XL as well. So I got my self a pretty long road ahead.
