Best of the Maiden Voyage

November 15, 2011
The Maiden Voyage of the Tin Gypsy was a wonderful adventure! 
Two weeks spent traveling through Oregon and Washington with the Gypsy... 
the beauty of the mountains, the majesty of coast, the excitement of the cities. 
It was all so fantastic- especially the people we met along the way. 
The wet-plate process is a tricky one, made even trickier when you add in all the new variables of living on the road-- 
unpredictable weather, lack of water sources and dirt, dirt and MORE dirt. 
There were some frustrating moments and more than a few plates that did not come out perfectly, but it was all part of the learning process...
Now we know what to expect and can plan accordingly for the next Gypsy Voyage, 
which will be a cross-country adventure and will hopefully take place this spring! 
Here are a few of my favorites of the Maiden Voyage tintypes...

    I love what you are doing! I am trying to figure out how to turn my new camping trailer into a darkroom while still being able to use it to camp. Does yours have sleeping area? Any advice? Keep up the creative side of photography. I love the old stuff too! Tammy
