Death by outfit isn’t something featured in the game of Clue but it could be. Our ancestors lured to the new bright colors of the nineteenth century wore garments poisoned with arsenic and mercury, perhaps hurrying along their deaths.

It doesn’t take hindsight to realize you’re living in historic times. This last year has taught us that.

A few years ago, the Concord Museum in Concord, Massachusetts assembled a tempora…
 
Every time I see another news story on a photo reunion that’s happened through crowdsourcing images online I chuckle.

How did you and your ancestors learn how to take “Good Pictures?” It’s likely they read Kodak’s guide for amateur photographers, How to Make Good Pictures published from 1912 to 1995. New cameras and new technology influenced how we took photographs and what they photographed. My guest studied those popular guides to photography to compile a new ty…
 
In amateur snapshots and selfies we don’t take care with our fashion. We pose in what we decided to wear that day. Now think about when you go to a photo studio. That’s entirely different. We dress up and our ancestors did too. They wore their best dress and perhaps a new hat to look their finest, the epitome of the fashion they could afford. Women…

It’s the beginning of the year. A good time to review the ways we approach our photos. Best practices vary based on what you are trying to accomplish.

The same is true for ph…

Every Fall I start mumbling about the “highway to the holidays,” that hectic time of year that consumes any leftover moments of the day with preparations.
