    Tin Types and Other Works

    For the folks interested there is a show in Blanco, TX (West of Austin, North of San Antonio) by a group of National Geo photographers. One of the photographers is doing some tin types that look, on line at least, pretty nice.

    Here is the link: http://www.renaissance-alliance.org/fundraiser.html

    Thanks

    Mike,
    I saw a segment on Texas Country Reporter that show a guy at a ranch shooting some portraits. I think it is the same guy. It is nice work.

    I saw Robb Kendrick speak last night at the Santa Fe Workshops. His work is beautiful and his tin types are stunning.

    I'm with you there Johnny, seems like Porter's Cameras list a small kit for doing tin types that I have thought about, but darn if I can figure out where to get the time.

    David, did he have some of the tin types from the show with him?

    Noticed on the web site mentioned that the works were all for sell, $145 I think. Now, that is no small sum, but for the way some of his work looks I think it is probably a Great Buy.

    You are correct Lee, another friend sent me a note telling me about the Country Reporter segment and I went to that web site, which got me to the one listed above. Sometimes all this technology actually works in OUR favor.

    Like to see someone create a digital tin type (whoops, better not say that out loud).

    If you guys are really interested in the proccess, you can go to www.rockland.com and order the Tintype Parlor.. comes with everything to get you started in the proccess.. its not the exact same proccess as Robb's (he does wet plate collodion, tintype parlor is dry plate reversal proccess) but it will look similar...

    cheers
