This personal project was born of lifelong pursuit of charting new paths upon the broad field of artistic landscape, combined with an unexplained passion for vintage ground glass focusing loupes. I’ll never seize looking for magical yet unexplored ways in which to see the world, and translating those findings into the language of photography; this is but one such journey.
Brief history and development of ground glass focusing loupes
This post is dedicated to a very helpful yet often-overlooked photographic accessory. After scouring the web, at this point, I have only been able to find few brief entries dedicated to those devices, so I hope my writing will be found helpful by inquisitive minds interested in the history of photo equipment.
Tintypes Made Using Focusing Loupes as Lenses is a companion post to this one. Capturing images in this exact manner is something that to my knowledge has not been done before, though of course, I am always ready to be proven otherwise.
