Named for the original model — an employee of Kodak — the portraits were used by photo labs to calibrate printers. But until the 1970s, that model was always white.
Rene Guitart's insight:
"At the time, in the '50s, the people who were buying cameras were mostly Caucasian people," she says. "And so I guess they didn't see the need for the market to expand to a broader range of skin tones."
According to Roth, the dynamic range of the film — both still photo stock and motion picture — was biased toward white skin. In 1978, the filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard famously refused to use Kodak film to shoot in Mozambique because he declared the film was racist. People also complained that photos of blacks and whites in the same shot would turn out partially under- or over-exposed.
In a memo handed down to New York City Police precincts on Wednesday, the Chief of Department, Philip Banks, reminded his staff that photographers do indeed have the right to photograph on duty police officers. This comes two long years after the Washington DC police force issued a strikingly similar notice to its officers. It also [...]
A few months ago I got married. (Confetti! Streamers! Cake if you have it!) In doing this, I took on a gorgeous husband and three darling stepdaughters. Add my two adorable sons to the mix and you end up with a total of seven people sharing a couple of bathrooms, a kitchen, and the lion’s …
Some images define history: an early snapshot of the Statue of Liberty; Neil Armstrong first setting foot on the moon; a defiant man standing before a tank in Tiananmen Square; the Beatles walking down Abbey Road. But the other angles are rarely seen: the Statue of Liberty under construction in France, for example; or the [...]

Stratocumuliform, cirrus, cumulonimbus, altocumulus: what do these strange words all have in common? They’re all used to classify different types of clouds. In this case, the scientific name is actually as cool as the object it describes.
There's a new camera app in town and it is making some pretty bold claims. While some camera apps on the App Store trade on being able to add filters and all kinds of tweaks to images, others go for all-out quality, trying to bring some of the DSLR magic to the iPhone. Hydra, by Creaceed, goes the way of quality but takes it a step further by claiming to be able to create 32-megapixel images using just the iPhone's 8-megapixel camera.
Rene Guitart's insight:
This camera app for iOS is amazing. It creates the best HDR, lo-light, and high-res 32 megapixel I've ever seen on the iPhone.
Photo Streams on iOS are kind of a confusing and horrible way to manage photos, but blogger Ben Walker points out that you can use shared photo streams as a massive storage system without using your iCloud storage space if you use the shared photo...
