Camp Tintype

In June I went up to Dundee, New York to take John Coffer‘s wet plate workshop. On the last day he gave us the option of doing two mammoth plates, but I chickened out. A whole plate is about as much as I could manage. Brave Ashley Julin gave it a go and produced a wonderful portrait of Travis Hocutt, John’s assistant for the summer.  The Big Travis plate was a very organic piece of art – bugs and assorted flyaways adhered to varnish as it was drying.

    As you have already heard, I love your tin type and hope to see them exhibited rather than shoved under the bed!
