MATES VIP Launch Anne-Mrie Case-Miller and Geoff Andrew

Very interesting afternoon at Snapshot Cameras for the 175th anniversary of photography. I was in a group that had a photo taken with a replica 175 year old camera using a daguerreotype method (explained below) by Alan Chidgey-Bekhuis of http://www.casedimage.com/. I adjusted the exposure of the scan he sent me due to the fact that the plates do not scan well. The image when you look at it in person looks very interesting as the light changes a little depending on the angle you look at it. This was a 2 plate image with focus at 2 different distances to give a stereographic effect when using the proper viewer. We had to stand still for 15 seconds for each photo plus 45 or so seconds in between.

Daguerreotype photography:
“With Daguerreotypes each silver coated copper plate must be brought to a state of high mirror like polish from its mat and opaque condition from its foundry production. #love #tweegram #photooftheday #20likes #amazing #followme #look #instalike #igers #picoftheday #food #instadaily #instafollow #like #girl #iphoneonly #instagood #bestoftheday #instacool #instago  #webstagram #colorful #style #swag #hamilton #photooftheday #nature #hippynz #lancemccaughan

If you have a Google account you can have fun with their tracking service. Any time you have Google Location Services on Google is remembering where you go. They use this to narrow down search results etc for you. But if you are logged in to your Google account you can go to this web site, https://maps.google.com/locationhistory/b/0 , and view your trip. I do not have Google Location Services on all the time, I just turn it on when I need it. When you only turn Google Location Services on as you need it you get a set of dots joined in the order that you went to them by a straight red line.I then thought I could have fun with this. Plan some spots around town walk to them with Google Location Services turned off, turn it on when I get there, use the Google maps or Foursquare or Check in to Google or Facebook, then turn it off and move to the next location. This has to be done in the order you want the lines drawn as one continuous trail. My first trip doing this is the attached screen capture. What patterns can you create?
