Inspired by a cool tintype family portrait on my friend's holiday card this year, I googled "tintype Austin" to see how she might have done it. Some of you know, my BFA is in Photography, so I have a bit of an, admittedly, love/hate history with photo and alternative process. I've messed around with my fair share of hand painted emulsions, but never ventured as far as tintype. It is *truly* a pain! But, a COOL LOOKING pain.
If you are looking for something a little different for your engagement portraits or invitation image, it turns out there are a few local folks who can do the tintype dirty work for you! Austin is home to the husband/wife team, Loren Doyen and Adrian Whipp, of Lumiere. Their web site features a gallery and rate info. And, you can find Chris Bailey in Houston, doing some cool work as well. I will post samples from each below. Think outside of the digital box! Analog is the new black.
