Hey guys! I'm here to share with you the tintypes that I did at the Tradesmen - creative proprietors & charitable pour house at the beginning of this month. I was contacted a few weeks ago to do tintypes of all the historical homes that Stepheni and her father, Stephen, and husband Michael have rehabilitated and now have a new life.
This home is a 1886 Victorian Stick style home, in East Village.
The Tradesmen house is a place where you and your small business can work and conduct meetings. They have 7 unique rooms in the house ranging in sizes of the space to get your work done! I wish that wet plate had the power to be able to do exposures inside of a home, but alas. It’s too dark! The inside has a lovely modern and vintage feel to the space.
The tintypes below where at the exposure time of 2 secs to 3 secs. Using a rapid rectilinear lens up until the last two plates where I switched to my voightlander lens. The first two plates are the size of 3 1/2 by 5 and the last plate is an 5x7 plate.
I will be working again with Tradesmen on the other properties that they have restored! So stay tuned :)
