Its been over a year since I met Nija at the art fair at the Peoples History Museum. She sat for a portrait during a wet plate demo at the fair. At that time she managed to sit still enough for a 30 second exposure. We’ve been meaning to catch up for a while and this Saturday she popped along to the studio for a chat and a coffee. Needless to say we shot a couple of plates for fun.

Heres some 35mm and quarter plate tintypes and ambrotypes. Sorry about the poor reproduction, they were shot quickly on a little digi camera rather than the usual scans.





Thanks Nija, it was good to catch up and lets not leave it so long next time.
