    These were taken by my wife for her project -
    The camera is a Japanese reproduction of an 1860's era Ambriotype.
    The exposures range from 4-7 seconds and are directly onto tin.
    They are reversed -
    I'll keep posting, if there is interest, as we shot a lot of my collection.

    She is a student of the tin-type process - but makes her living with portrait photography.

    Great pictures. If a person didn't know, you would
    think they were decades old photos.

    She did a fantastic job.

    Nice pictures very tastefully done. Quite a group of guns also.

    A couple of new ones - the process takes a while with drying and varnishing - not German this time.

    Excellent Ambriotypes! Do you guys attend any Civil War reenactments? I and fellow reenactors would pay big $$$ to have well executed Ambriotype taken with period equipment!

    Thank you, Slade,

    This is the first time she's photographed this sort of subject matter - all her idea, not mine.

    Ref. re-enactments: It's not a very mobile system - You have three minutes to take the photo after preparing it in the darkroom - then you rush back to the darkroom to finish the process, which requires running water - Presently, everything is photographed at our studio.
    (Although a friend of hers has converted a small school bus into a mobile dark-room.)

    The studio is in So-Cal, feel free to PM me for more info. - it's her bread and butter, so I would simply pass along her details


    *These two were less effective:
    1. I loaned her a 1940's Soviet propaganda poster for the background - but, the focus is so shallow it didn't really work, and then there was a chemical problem, too.


    Then, on this one, I am missing the fore grip on this MP (if anyone has one, please Pm me ) - and it just looks wrong, I suggested she frame within the grip - she didn't like my suggestion.
