1

One of the up and coming (and relatively surprising) accounts on twitter of late is @HistoryInPics, who tweets vintage photos with one line captions. Have a look!

With all the novelty and spam accounts in twitter, it’s hard to encounter one that’s actually relevant to our interests. Enter @HistoryInPics, who regularly posts various analogue photos spanning the whole of human history, which includes key events in the past, to trivial but interesting human interest images.

Amidst all the celebrity gossip and ‘this is what I’m eating’ posts in twitter, HistoryInPics is definitely a refreshing change of pace in this 160 character world. Follow @HistoryInPics today!

    Photo Stories: Away With You by lomomowlem

    It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.

    Vintage Gallery: Stunts and Balancing Acts

    In 1963, a couture-clad model in a bubble capsule floated through the streets of Paris. Melvin Sokolsky, the mastermind who dreamed it all, photographed her as strangers looked on. Stunts and gravity-defying acrobatics have this effect on people. The sense of danger or impossibility is the attraction; one cannot help but look.

    Geoffrey Berliner On Photographic Processes, Old and New

    Geoffrey Berliner is the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York. As the head of an organization whose goals are 'to be a comprehensive resource for photographers at any level' and 'to continue to publicize the impact photography has had and continues to have on culture, history and the arts,' his exposure to photographic materials -from 19th century gems to modern equipment- is so extensive, one cannot even begin to fathom just how much knowledge and experience this man has acquired. His collection of over 2000 vintage Petzval lenses is unparalleled, and the object of envy of both traditional and contemporary photographers. Although such lenses are reputed to require a certain level of skill to be used, Berliner seems to manage them with so much ease, producing splendid results.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ice Skating (A Tribute to Monte Fresco)

    This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
