Another Tintype Portrait

This is the second tintype portrait Bridget had done at Photobooth, and it’s a stunner. I love how it brought out her beautiful freckles. Look at how razor-sharp the eyes are with everything in the frame immediately behind them just melting out of focus.

This little production shot I took with my iPhone 4s shows photographer Michael Schindler getting all his light modifiers in place before firing off that beautiful 4×5 camera. Now you can see what was responsible for those crazy cool catch lights in Bridget’s eyes!

If you live in or around San Francisco, you’ve got to pay this studio a visit and get yourself immortalized on a steel plate, or at least get some help firing up that old Polaroid camera of yours 😉

  1. Seriously the first thing I do when I finally make it to San Francisco, is getting a tintype portrait taken! LOVE THEM. Cory and I were hoping to be able to afford to come down for a mini honeymoon, and have a wedding portrait done on tintype. Looks like that’s going to have to wait for now. Hopefully next year.

    Bridget look incredible!

  2. Wow. Just… WOW. I seriously can’t wait to get my tintype done in May!!! I hope I have time to squeeze that in. It might have to wait for my real SF vacation in September.

    Also, can I just say that I’ve been missing your blog posts so much! I was having RSS reader issues on my iPad… But that’s all sorted out now, and it’s good to have you guys and Suki back on my screen. 🙂

    1. Kim! You’re gonna love Photobooth. Hopefully we can bump into you guys when you visit at some point. I still gotta try a bokeh pano!!!

      Thanks for the comments everyone! 🙂
