A Beautiful Video of the Daguerreotype Process

 

Silver plate for Daguerreotype

Louis Daguerre invented the photographic process that bore his name in the late 1830′s. Today, Dan Carillo is still using the process to make stunning images. Here is a short article that profiles Dan along with a beautiful video in which Dan talks about his creative process – but he doesn’t get very technical. It’s very cool that he is making images with this technique. It is a unique process that creates a beautiful image that will last for generations.

Construction of the Golden Gate Bridge

Construction of the Golden Gate BridgeThe always outstanding Retronaut.co has some fantastic images that were taken during the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge, in the years leading up to 1937. The bridge got it’s name from the Golden Gate  - the body of water that connects the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean –  and is one of the worlds most photographed bridges. See here some of the very first of those photographs.

Woolworths in NYC ca 1913

I just came across an amazing photo of a scene in New York City of the Woolworths building in 1913. It’s a nice large image, so you can get in there and see some detail. It’s interesting to see the line of traffic on the street to the right side of the photo.
