PhotoBooth. Where else in the world can you get an REAL Tintype Portrait of yourself done? where but San Francisco!

At 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!

One 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.

Photobooth 1193 Valencia Street @ 23rd San Francisco, CA 94110
