There are so many photography lenses, for different purposes and uses, that give different results; lenses vary in size and in price. Construction of camera lens is very complex process, so don’t be surprised if the lens you put your mind on costs a lot of money.
It has been known that the good lens is almost (or not as important) as important as the camera you use. It’s never simple to choose your lens. There are different kinds of lenses that provide different effect or are for different purposes.
Edwin Land’s journey that resulted with the historical invention of Polaroid Instant Camera started purely out of love. His, then, 3 year old daughter Jennifer asked him a very simple question while they were enjoying their family vacation. When he took a photo of her, she asked him “Why can’t I see the picture now?” […]
Started as an just an experiment, lomography is nowadays one of the most popular globally-active organizations dedicated to art, more specifically creative photography. The concept of lomography is quite simple – it allows everyone to find their inner photographer and capture the world around them in a creative way.
Black and white enthusiasts are all about the finesses. Making your black and white photo perfect takes much more effort than many people think – just the right lighting, range of contrasts, amount of grain, and of course, the right film. Among the many different types of films, choosing the one that fits your needs and taste in photography is never an easy task, but these five turned out to give the best results when used the right way.
There are so many different films in the market, so if you’re just starting your journey with analog photography, it may be hard to choose, and you may be disappointed with results. Don’t let this discourage you, defining your own style as a photographer, and choosing the right look for images is never easy. Here we give you the list of the best and most commonly used films that might help you with the choice.
Analog photography is the term that refers to the image, products of photographic process, based on the use of analog camera and film. A roll of film is loaded into the body of camera and triggered by the click, light interacts with the chemicals in the film, recording instantaneously the image on the film roll. Images collected on the roll are then developed and processed in the photo lab.
History of polaroid as we know it today began in 1924, when Harvard freshman Edvin H. Land left school to pursue his own research. In 1926 he patented first synthetic polarizer.The original idea behind instant camera was to create a camera that produces images immediately and is easy to use.
Polaroid or instant film is a type of film used for instant cameras. This particular type of film itself contains chemicals needed to develop and fix the photo that is being exposed and developed within the camera, minutes after being shot.
In the year 1937, Edwin H. Land founded Land-Wheelwright Laboratories, that later became famous by the name Polaroid Corporation. First they only produced polarized sunglasses, but Land left Harvard in the age of seventeen to work on his research.
Collodion Wet Plate Process, or, widely known as just Collodion process was introduced to public in 1850s by Frederick Scott Archer, and by the end of the decade it had almost comletely replaced daguerreotype as the main technique of capturing images. It’s a process of pouring a collodion onto a plate of thin iron or glass, then placing that plate into a camera and exposing it, and developing it while it is still wet, which named the entire process.
Calotype, sometimes called Talbotype, by its inventor Henry Fox Talbot, with slight differences than the process as we now know it, was introduced in the autumn 1840, and patented in February of 1841. It’s an early photographic technique where paper is coated with silver iodide. It was offered as cheaper and simpler alternative to Daguerreotype and was widely accepted among both photographers and amateurs, but it failed to replace it completely.
During 19th century many photographic techniques have been developed and improved and there were also some new ones. Calotype was the first photo picture that you could get from negative, collodion wet plate gave permanent negative on glass and ambrotype and ferrotype were cheaper version of it. When black and white photography was at its climax, in 1839 Louis-Jaques-Mandé Daguerre introduced worldwide the new process – Daguerreotype.
Ambrotype, the process that replaced daguerreotype was invented in 1850s by Frederick Scott Archer in UK, later (in 1854) brought to US and improved by James Ambrose Cutting and it’s based on wet collodion process.
Tintype is a type of photography process that reached it’s highest success and widest use during the 1860s and 1870s, although the medium was still in use in early 20th century. It is hard to accurately say where it originated from, since it was simultaneously patented in both United States and United Kingdom by Hamilton […]
