taking pictures of some of my jewelry I made last week but I’m so sick I’m shaking like a leaf. I should lie down but there is only so much good daylight and since today is lightly overcast it’s PERFECT….
If I faint it’s my own damn fault.
As a facepainter we have had several professional photographers at our events in the past, and probably will in the future. Of course most of the work is pro-bono, but still….
…. is it usual to never ever see the photos?
We have three photographers from LAST YEAR for summer season that still haven’t sent us the photos. Is my face painting boss is perhaps to lenient is trying to get the photos from them? I don’t care what they are doing with those photos, I would just be happy if they put the raw shots on a data stick or four and gave them to us to go through.
Because when you are face painting you are to darn busy to take any photos yourself! I have NO photos from my work last year except for some of the shitty ones I took with my phone camera here and there.
It is rather upsetting.
How would I go about politely getting at least some of our photos from these people???
The Snowflake Man — The World’s First Picture of a Snowflake
In 1885, at the age of 20, Wilson Bentley, a farmer who would live all his life in the small town of Jericho in Vermont, gave the world its first ever photograph of a snowflake. Throughout the following winters, until his death in 1931, Bentley would go on to capture over 5000 snowflakes, or more correctly, snow crystals, on film. Despite the fact that he rarely left Jericho, thousands of Americans knew him as The Snowflake Man or simply Snowflake Bentley. Our belief that “no two snowflakes are alike” stems from a line in a 1925 report in which he remarked: “Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated. When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost.”
It started with a microscope his mother gave him at age 15 which opened the world of the small to young Wilson. A lover of winter, he made plans to use his microscope to view snowflakes. His initial investigations proved both fascinating and frustrating as he tried to observe the short-lived flakes. So that he could share his discoveries, he began by sketching what he saw, accumulating several hundred sketches by his seventeenth birthday. When his father purchased a camera for his son, Wilson combined it with his microscope, and went on to make his first successful photomicrograph of a snow crystal on 15 January 1885.
