my wife's mother will soon turn 94
she's fine, but she has lost the use of her hands and legs ...
but she always has the joke ready, she says that my hair with a ponytail is ugly.

the first photo is a 13x18cm tintype from 2014
it is a wet plate on black aluminum, made in the studio with a very soft 3000W front light + backlight
Petzval 275mm f: 4.5 lens (fully open)

the second was done in the garden of the nursing home, it is the first time that it could be taken outside after 16 months of Covid-19 (visits spaced 10 minutes once a week)
taken a few days ago with Sony A7 with Nikkor-H 50 f:2 @f:2 and BG39 + BG25

Ooo, Petzval lens!!

Fantastic pictures, although maybe she won't thank you for making her look like she was born in the 19th century!

The first photo is the better of the two for me--I like the pose and lighting.
