Modern Ferrotype Name

Where did the name and idea for Modern Ferrotypes come from?

While looking through a photography exhibit I saw some old tintype and ferrotype images. I liked the look and thought about how to make the modern equivalent.  I knew about color laser printer transfers and that the process would work on brushed stainless steel.  After a lot of experimentation I was able to produce a good quality image on mirrored finished stainless steel.  I had shot some infrared images in Utah and when printed on the mirrored finished stainless steel, these images bore a close resemblance to the old ferrotype images.  The process is unrelated to the ferrotypes of the 1800's, but the resulting image is close.
