Photographer Uses 160-Year-Old Camera Equipment to Create Beautifully Haunting Portraits

With all of the technology out there, there’s a lot to choose from if you are looking to get a great photo.  That being said, Giles Clement, a photography wizard, likes to keep things in the past with traditional technology that perfectly emphasizes the haunting quality of photography back in its day.  This 160-year-old equipment makes some pretty amazing photos, too, you have to admit.

With perfect saturation and an impressive quality that will make you rethink the fact that old is outdated, all you have to do is take a look through these impressive photos and you’ll be full of admiration of some kind, whether you are someone who is in the position of understanding photography in its purest form, or not.

While it may not be good for all kinds of photography, it is certainly got a lot on the newest technology when it comes to portraits.  Since portraits are meant to show the soul of the person in them, old technology has the power to do that (plus a good photographer behind the camera, of course).  So, go ahead and take a flip through these archaic methods of photography.  We guarantee that, while you may not understand what goes on with glass slides and the patience behind the photog taking 10 minutes to take, you’ll certainly appreciate the final effect of it.  Maybe it’ll inspire you to take some photos of your own, you never know.
