I Just finished the most exciting photography workshop I have ever taken,  Tintypes at RayKo in San Francisco. The instructor, Michael Shindler, was wonderful, articulate, knowledgeable, inspired and provided just the right amount of assistance.

The first morning was a run through on the chemistry itself, but we quickly moved into a demonstration of makeing a tintype and before noon we all had made our first one.  The rest of the day we just made as many photos as we liked and Michael would provide as much help as was needed.

The second day started with a run through of the process but with glass instead of metal plates and then we were free to make photos using different camera setups, including a Sinar with strobes setup for portraits, a table top with various backgrounds for still life, a field camera for taking outside and a Hasselblad for handheld. We were able to invite friends and family to take portraits and show them the process too.

All in all it was very good, it has gotten me to rethink what I want todo with my photography. RayKo is a wonderful resource and this workshop is particularly good. So if you have a chance I highly recommend them.

How comfortable did you become with the chemistry? Is this something you think you can realistically accomplish at home?

I've been fascinated with tintypes for as long as I can remember, and I really would like to find a new purpose for my Hasselblads and view cameras. This could be it...

That does look mighty interesting...Might have to mosey on over there and take a look.  I've been to Rayko for shows, the last one was all things Holga but never for the use of the darkrooms and such.
Thanks for the posting.
