Tintypes Made for Two
Back in February, the folks at Photobooth SF offered a special series of tintype lockets for couples. These portraits where shot on a 35mm camera that had been specially modified to hold tintype plates, that would later get developed and then cut to fit into each half of a locket. As a Valentine’s gift, Christine booked our appointment and we both decided we’d like to have a locket set of our own. Since each tintype is unique, I thought it’d be great to do a “traditional portrait” locket and a “silly face” locket. You can see the resulting tintypes at the top of this post (in gif form!).
