Little-Known Facts About Photography
Have you ever wondered about the reason behind people in early photographs not smiling? That is one of the little-known facts about photography and we’re going to take a look at several of those.
No Smiles. That little-known fact mentioned above results from the fact that early photography required a very long time for exposures. One of the little-known facts about photography is that those exposures took hours sometimes. Imagine holding a smile for hours while getting a photo taken!
Baby Pictures. Taking photos of adults was really hard in the early days and taking baby pictures was almost impossible. Babies squirm and move – a lot! One of the little-known facts about photography involves taking those pictures we all love to have. How did they do it? Well, it seems mothers were often disguised as chairs and held their babies while they had photos taken. And a more eerie of the little-known facts about photography is that sometimes those babies had their photos taken after they died!
How Many Pictures? Another of the little-known facts about photography has to do with the number of photos taken. For example, the number of photos taken every two minutes now is equal to the number of photos taken by all people in the 1800s! Yet another of those little-known facts about photography involves the number of photos on Facebook. Currently, the total there is 10,000 times more than the total number of photos in the U.S. Library of Congress. And those photos in the Library document the history of the U.S. from its beginning. Right now, more than 350 billion photos are taken every year!
Which Side Of Your Face? Do we all have a best side? One of those little-known facts about photography tells us that may prove true. Research done at Wake Forest University showed the left side of a human face gives a more pleasant photo than the right side. This may come from the left side having more intensity of emotions than the right.
It Cost What? How much did your latest camera cost? Or the camera on your phone? One of the little-known facts about photography is the cost of the most expensive camera ever sold. It was on an auction and was a 1923 Leica O-series camera. It was a very rare piece and sold for $2.8 million! Want to rush right out and pick one up this week?
