Update #6

Check in for Rewards

Comment

Hello Everyone!

Well New Orleans is heating up and melting down and I've still got this sexy tintype beast going strong! 

If I have done my book keeping correctly every body with a Post Card, 3x4 tintype & 5x7 tintype reward should have gotten them in the mail by now.....

(except Phil Nesmith / Whitman Bouton & Caity DeSantis - just put yours in the mail yesterday)

I am venturing into 8x10 territory and should have those in the mail with in the next 2 weeks! 

Please let me know if you DID NOT receive your aforementioned reward and I will get it in the mail right quick!

Thanks so much y'all - Dinah

A Great Grand Thank You

Comment

....Words often fail me (which is why I make my life out of photographs) - so as much as I try to express JUST HOW MUCH I have been blown away at the generosity and excitement I have received from this fundraiser, I simply can not. I am stunned, giddy and ever so grateful for all of your support. Friends, family and fantastic strangers - THANK YOU.

I am already hard at work back in New Orleans doing what I love to do... Setting up the camera, pouring a fresh plate of collodion and focusing my antique ground glass on the breath taking beauty of this extraordinary city. This also means I am already hard at work on your rewards! Throughout the next few months, when things are ready to be shipped, I will send out a survey asking for a mailing address as well as a tintype preference (nature or architecture).

Until then you can see works in progress on my flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/knitbone/

Happiest of holidays and thank you again - Dinah

FUNDED!

Comment

WHOO WHOO! Thank you Stevia Eldritch for kicking me over my goal!! The project has reached it's $3,000 goal which means we will be funded! With just over a week to go, I am taking this opportunity to set a new funding goal of $4,500. With all the love and support this project has garnished so far let's see if we can push it that much further. The video itself has been viewed over 1,500 times since this project was launched on November 12. Thank you to EVERYONE who has watched, shared, contributed & appreciated Tin,Sin. Please continue to spread it around for one more week!! EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS!

Update #3

A Clarification

Comment

It has come to my attention that perhaps my wording is not clear for the $50 reward. It has been VERY popular (THANK YOU ALL) and I want to make sure everyone is satisfied - I am not sending out any of the tin sin portraits as rewards. I do not feel that would be fair to the people in the pictures. They are not paid or reimbursed to have their photographs taken, further the original - one of a kind -  portraits are all part of a permanent collection - or belong to the people they are taken of.

As noted I do plan to put together a book of this collection and the pictures will be accessible there.

My intention is to take beautiful architectural shots of New Orleans and the surrounding landscape for your rewards. I will send out a survey if the project is successful and each person can choose if they would prefer architecture or landscape. 

Thank you for your support - Dinah
