Rare Portraits of Bulldogs Taken Around 1905

Rare Portraits of Bulldogs Taken Around 1905 | Photography: Inspiration & Technique | Scoop.it
Old Heidelberg
How adorable are these dressed up little dogs!? This photo series, a collection that has been catalogued in the Library of Congress, should be considered a discovery of hidden treasures! The images are estimated to have been created around 1905, and each photograph was taken with a large format camera on an 8x10 negative. The series is reflective of such a fascinating turn-of-the-century period, when photographs were much more rare than they are today and creativity behind the camera was still being discovered. To take a portrait, it was necessary for subjects to sit still for minutes at a time. I wonder how the photographer got these pups to stay still for so long!
The unknown artist had quite the vision and dressed up different bulldogs in timely, fashionable garb which gives each little guy or gal such incredible personality. The costumes represent the fashion when men smoked pipes and wore fancy suits and women donned fabulous flowery hats and frilly dresses. I…

Why Sharpness is Overrated in Street Photography | Eric Kim

Why Sharpness is Overrated in Street Photography | Eric Kim | Photography: Inspiration & Technique | Scoop.it

Sharpness is over-rated in street photography. Even Henri Cartier-Bresson once said, “Sharpness is a bourgeois concept.” I remember when I first saw one of HCB’s exhibitions in person in Paris, I was surprised by how soft most of his shots were. And many of his photos were significantly out of focus (thinking about the famous shot of the man in a bullfighter’s ring in Spain (above). When I stated street photography, I was obsessed with sharpness. This of course, was due to all the nerds on gear forums who showed corner to corner sharpness tests on brick walls. I was suckered into thinking a sharp photo was a good photo. However once I discovered the work or Daido Moriyama, I realized that a good photo didn’t need to be sharp. In-fact, a grainy, out of focus, and soft photo often had more mood, emotion, and soul than an uber-sharp photo.......

Photographer Uses 130-Year-Old Camera to Capture Images of Modern England

Photographer Uses 130-Year-Old Camera to Capture Images of Modern England | Photography: Inspiration & Technique | Scoop.it
In the age of Photoshop, cell phone snaps, and digital photography, British photographer Jonathan Keys stands out with his passion for the collodion (or wet plate) process, an early photographic process that was invented by Frederick Scott Archer in the 1850s. Armed with his 130-year-old wooden Circa camera and a lens from the 1920s, Keys roams the streets of Newcastle, capturing striking images of present-day England in a classical, black-and-white aesthetic.
Keys' unique photos juxtapose the past and the present in intriguing ways. At first glance, many of his street shots depicting Edwardian architecture and cobblestone walkways look like they could have been captured over a century ago, but closer examination reveals telltale signs of the present: sleek cars, contemporary graffiti, electric street lamps, modern hairstyles and outfits. The photographer's preferred method of capturing scenes of the digital era in a historical city using an old, analog process raises fascinating…
