First images ...

Here are a couple tintypes I shot after getting all set up with the new camera, dip tanks, chemicals, etc. They are 4x5 and 8x10 respectively (the two sizes I'll be offering locally). This is actually my first ever 8x10. With all things considered I'm quite happy with the result.

I'll be shooting with some family/friends this weekend - can't wait to see how portraits turn out with this new setup. 

The difference in coloring is simply that the 4x5 had dried completely when I snapped the image and the 8x10 had not.
