Taken on 4th of July Weekend of my father. This Dag seems to be a bit over developed and just slightly over exposed. Due to imperfections, I did not guild this plate. What great detail & tonal range in his hair and face. I was really disappointed with this plate at first, but it continues to grow on me... I like it better as time goes by.

This historic process, invented by Jaques Daguerre in 1839, provides a unique depiction of important people, places, and moments in life. After training with Jerry Spagnoli, one of the most notable Daguerreotype artists, we have gained a love and appreciation for this medium that can only be realized by experiencing final pieces in person. This is especially significant due to the hallographic visual quality provided by these artistic representations. The final product is a mirror image of the subject captured on a silver coated copper plate, beautifully enclosed in a case built specifically to display the intended image. Longevity is certainly an asset to this art, as dags have proven to last well beyond 100 years.
