Headstand

My portraiture work now has a helpful addition – a sturdy headstand for the long exposures. I did have a replica headstand (the top shown here) but it was without the base and relied on a chair I had to fitted it to. This stand, which is from the early part of the 20th century, allows me to take standing portraits. It was traded for a daguerreotype of mine with a photo dealer out the back of a Tampa airport shuttle after this years daguerreian society meeting.
