PhotoBooth they make authentic, wet collodion process tintypes right in their
shop, while you wait. Each Portrait is a completely hand-made, one-of-a-kind
art object -- your image, rendered in pure silver, on an aluminum plate. Yes,
they use the exact process, formula and technique that originated in the
1850's....4x5 or 8x10…your portrait alone, or with your sweetie is a fun thing
to do in SF. They also offer Daguerreotype on stainless steel…very cool.
Reservations are suggested since it takes about 30 minutes start-to-finish, but
they also will take walk ins. Individual 4x5 Tintype is $60.00, Ferrotype is
$85.00. Couples Package is $300 and includes a Tintype of each person and two
Tintypes as a couple. Now that is what I call a photographers souvenir!
block away for lunch is Lucca Ravioli which is a real-deal Italian delicatessen
where they should charge you just to enjoy the delicious smells of fresh
ravioli, cheeses, sauces, breads and salami -take a ticket and order a sandwich
or a cup of soup for lunch as you walk back down vibrant, busy Valencia Street.
