How Kodak's Shirley Cards Set Photography's Skin-Tone Standard

How Kodak's Shirley Cards Set Photography's Skin-Tone Standard | Photography | Scoop.it
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.

19 Rare & Haunting Photographs That Will Make You Reconsider History | Photography | Scoop.it
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 [...]

This iOS App Lets You Take 32-Megapixel Photos Using iPhone Camera | Redmond Pie

This iOS App Lets You Take 32-Megapixel Photos Using iPhone Camera | Redmond Pie | Photography | Scoop.it
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.
