Sun, wind and tintype

today I’ve had time to go home for lunch. Time forecast sayed yesterday rain for today, but today there was a instead a wonderful sun.

So I’ve took my Linhof superTechnika and shot a 4X5″ tintype, with Petzval lens. 5 sec exposure during which a¬†blow of wind has come (!!). Not too much blur however. Developed with standard ferrous sulphate with some drops of nitric acid and fixed in cold typo (30%) to obtain cold tones. Watch the results in the portfolio.
