The Flickr Holiday Party

This year, last Tuesday, Flickr held their holiday party at Photobooth in The Mission – pretty much the ideal place for a photo sharing website to have a party. Photobooth is a small, hipstery instant portrait studio and gallery with all things Polaroid. There were seasonal drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and of course an insane white elephant gift exchange. However, the coolest part of the night was the ability to get a tintype taken for a small percentage off. [A tintype is a photograph made by creating a direct positive on a sheet of iron metal that is blackened by painting, lacquering or enamelling and is used as a support for a collodion photographic emulsion.] All the tintypes look amazing.

Henry's tintype is amazing. He looks kind of like a cuban druglord. Photo by Bogan.
