Here is one of the tintypes that l love because of the strange chemistry artifacts. @msalisonpill looks like a doll to me in the best and most jarring way. Normally, I would be disappointed that there was a line down her face. I actually think it makes this plate stronger. That’s also why I love the happy accidents associated with wetplate. .
This particular wet plate pays homage to Julia Margaret Cameron which wasn’t intentional. However, I think that her work is always in the back of my mind. Thanks @msalisonpill for being willing to for sitting for this. #tintype #wetplate #juliamargaretcameron #sundance .

Here is another tintype from my first tintype shoot at @SundanceFimFestival. The thing about Sundance is you never really know who is going to walk through your studio door. I used to see @michaelpittforreal in Prada ads and other campaigns, but I also used to see him strolling around my neighborhood as just a regular guy. I was pleasantly surprised when he walked in that day and I’ve always loved the result. This one of the plates that was selected for the book!! .

In honor of my first book, I’m posting a few favorite wet plates. For those of you who don’t know the whole story, a small idea conceived in 2012 at a photo festival to make a series of tintypes years later made it's way into a series and now a book. Publishing my work in book form has always been a dream and with the help of @Lucas_Jackson_, the generosity of my subjects like @nick cave official,  tireless work from an amazing crew, incredible support from @peanut_press_books and a lot of luck, it’s reality. I couldn’t be more excited. #wetplate #tintype #makeportraits #sundancefilmfestival

Montana is as epic as they say. But being here with my other family at @carhartt really makes this trip hard to beat. #wildwest #badasswomen #ranchlife #mattybradyforthewin

A few weeks ago I excitedly waddled 9 months pregnant into the studio to shoot a Pride portfolio that was bringing together all different types of people. None of whom I knew. @veronicamainetti was one of the amazing people I had the pleasure of photographing that day. Typically for me during a shoot there are a handful of images that I truly love from the day, but in this case there were too many to count. She is beautiful inside and out. Thanks for being such a lovely human! I'm really glad we met. #femalecreatives #makeportraits #womanempowerment
