Photographing Laila

I've wanted to try making a tintype of a surfer for awhile and my week on the beach afforded me the time and the surfer. Laila and I went out on tuesday to shoot but the weather is super fickle on the Washington coast and by the time we got out it was raining sideways and windy as all hell. We managed one plate but it was less than ideal. Thursday we gave it another go, the sun was out right up until we made it to the beach so once again we were shooting in the darkish but the plate this time was a ton better. Huge props to Lai for being the rockstar, and to Julz for being a lovely assistant/fluffer :)
