My last ACW event was 135th Gettysburg, in 1998. Had a few pics taken by a photographer with a period style camera using period plates and techniques. This is an actual tintype, taken on a bright Sunday morning, about 9AM. I stood there for almost 60 seconds. You can see that the image is reversed, in the tintype, compared to the color pic. And a pic of me, next to the camera.

The tintype photo is great. Those cameras had massive resolution which made for capturing great detail. I love seeing reenactors get photos made by them, some, like yours are very convincing.

I wish my chosen period of reenacting had camera technology!
