Tintypes are my favorite type of antique photo. I love how dark and moody they are, with their oh-so-hip grungy borders, dings, and scratches. It was really fun to combine the tintype look with outdoor photography. I think it makes the world seem quite dreamlike and surreal.
And just for something different, I also tried out a more formal-looking cabinet card too, which you can see below. All of these were made by combining my modern digital photos with scans of real tintypes, cabinet cards, and old paper.
Thanks for letting me share a few of my faux-Victorian selfies with you all!
