Did you know…

…that there are 12 Hasselblad cameras on the surface of the moon today.

Did You Know…Heavenly Light

Did you Know

Did you know that nature and landscape photographs with “heavenly light” trigger positive and sometimes even spiritual emotions within the viewer. These emotions can help relieve stress and anxiety with our daily lives. Studies have been conducted in the Healthcare industry which prove that these types of images also help promote self healing, which helps speed up the entire healing process.

Did you know…

Ever heard of a whole building being used as a huge camera? The runways and control tower of California’s U.S. Marine Corps Air Station El Toro is the largest photograph to exist. It was photographed with a single exposure on a sanitized fabric. The whole building was used as a camera. The photograph was a part of the Legacy Project and is referred to as the Great Picture. It is 111 feet wide and 32 feet high!
