Fotografica Fair Nieuwegein – Daguerreotype Score

Well, nothing special but I was looking for an original daguerreotype for some time now. Just for myself but also to show others how a real one looks in person and what the difference to an ambrotype is. I preferred a landscape but since they are quite rare because of the extreme cumbersome nature of the process these are also pretty harsh on your wallet. I kept it to a simple portrait. But these things are awesome!

If I had to guess an American Dag because of the decorative style...?

Looking good huh!

 

The fair was fun, wasn’t looking for anything special so kept it to this pretty boy 😉 Looking forward to Doesburg this year! Probably will be looking for an original ambrotype then…
Also, I really liked this new location in Nieuwegein. Much better than in Houten. A lot more spacious and it seemed there was more interesting stuff than before. Thumbs up!
