Damaged Photograph

Damaged Photograph


A photograph can be very valuable because of the image that it depicts. It may be of a once-in-a-lifetime moment or of a time and place you once loved. But over time, the aging process of a photograph is inevitable. If not stored correctly, a photo can be damaged over time and you may lose a very important memory.
Below are tips you can apply to your photograph collections to keep them highly durable:

1. Do not expose your photographs to direct sunlight.
Because UV rays in sunlight can fade the color and damage the photo or the frame. The easiest way to avoid this is to keep them away from windows or doors. If that’s not possible, you can lessen the damaging effects by keeping the photos behind a layer of glass or acrylic that has a layer of UV. Though this does not protect the frame from damage, it lessens the damaging effects of excessive UV rays from the sun. Read the rest of this entry »

Photography by Dave Hill

Photography by Dave Hill



When discussing photography styles, the discussion will center around the unique aspects of each photographer that are apparent in their works.?

Why unique? Because each photographs of each photographer is different. Whether it be from the angle the photograph is taken, how they direct their subjects, the lighting techniques they incorporate, or the post processing techniques they use. Each has their own signature of style. Take Dave Hill’s photographs, for example. When someone thinks of the work of Dave Hill, high quality HDR and perfect lighting comes to mind. Or Lucy Martin, an Oxfordshire photographer who is synonymous with her unique Roundography. There is also the Asian photographer by the name of Natsumi Hayasi who is very much consistent in applying levitation in her photography. They are the photographers that swam out of the mainstream and created a style of their own. And even though there are those that attempt to imitate their works of art, they’re still the best.
