Back in the olden days, people would pose for hours just to get a decent photograph, and if you sneezed, all bets were off. That’s why so many vintage photos make it look like the people featured just sucked on a lemon. But technology has come a long way, and today’s cameras provide instant gratification as well as endless opportunities to make duck lips.
Equally ideal for surprising an amateur photographer or total pro, this 50 Landmark Cameras That Changed Photography is a stunning look back at the history of cameras. Author John Wade has collected more than 460 images of cameras, illustrating the evolution of this incredible tool from the days of yore to modern times. Watch as even the photographs change from black and white images to full-color displays, the pictures themselves demonstrating how far the art of photography has come.
This hardcover book is a gift that’s meant to last. It’ll look wonderful displayed on a coffee table or offered up as reading material for photography clients waiting for their time in the spotlight. Whether you’re looking for a present for a photography professor or something fascinated by technology, this book is picture-perfect.
