i believe i discovered this tintype camp via amy merrick and i have been jonesing to go ever since. i am in awe of the photos that are created under the guidance of photographer extraordinaire, john coffer. can you imaging spending a weekend camping and immersing yourself in old timey photography methods? i would give my eyeteeth to nab a spot in his class, wouldn't you?

Yes! I become obsessed with modern tintypes after seeing these gorgeous photos of Anna Allen, one of my favorite seamstress bloggers, a few years back. They look so real!

LOVE these! and I would also would love to go and create these as well. I adore traditional forms of photography, it is so inspiring to go back to the basics.
