A tent that works

After much traveling and a busy work schedule I was able to shoot some tintypes with some collodion I'd mixed a month or so earlier. After all the hassle of the covered shower tent, I decided to go with a growth tent instead, only $100 of eBay. And thankfully it worked well, as did the home made collodion. So next on the list is building a new 8x10 camera and shooting some big plates. Some of the shots are in the tintypes section.
