Self Portrait by Julia Margaret Cameron

My lovely friend, Jolene Lupo, shot this portrait of me at the Penumbra Tintype Studio for my birthday. We were trying to recreate this portrait of Julia Margaret Cameron.

This is a 8x10 tintype shot on an antique Century Camera with an antique Petzval lens. We went for more dramatic lighting and dark lips, to make the image a bit more modern. It was a ton of fun trying to recreate the image.

Hoping to do more of these soon.
