Ever since I completed a course at Gold Street Studios (near Melbourne Australia) in tintypes, I have been keen to experiment with my own materials. I decided to go 10×8″ rather than 4×5″ as these were a better size for display. I recently bought all the gear and chemicals needed and started making images. These are a few of my children Memphis and Antonia. The third is of a friend Tahlay. I am happy with the originals and think that portraits are ideal for this technique.
