A TEDx Talk by Photographer Leif Norman About the Past and Future of Photography

11 Comments

Professional photographer Leif Norman recently gave a talk at TEDxManitoba titled “The Past and Future of Photography.” Norman spent 18 minutes giving the audience a brief history of photography and sharing Gladys, a large format view camera he built to experiment with older processes.

One of his recent discoveries was that he could scan a 4×5 calotype negative and turn it into a high quality 120 megapixel digital photograph. Gladys is therefore the equivalent of a 820 megapixel camera.
