You might think long exposure photography is a relatively new phenomenon, but you would be dead wrong. Harold Edgerton began experimenting with long exposure photos as early as 1938. He developed his style using a stroboscope, better known as a strobe light. He took his photos using a strobe along with the camera's flash to capture the motions of his subjects. The results are these awesome photos!
Have you ever wondered what it looked like at the construction site of the Titanic? Well, you're in luck. Here's a beautiful set of photographs taken from 1909-1911 documenting the construction of the world's most famous ship.
Up until fairly recently, even Eugene de Salignac's own family did not know much about him. The family received a call from the Municipal Archives of the City of New York and discovered Eugene was the photographer of thousands of images. While he worked for the Department of Bridges, De Salignac shot the construction of the Manhattan and Queensboro Bridges among other things. This is just a small record of some of his magnificent photos. If you like these, you can get a book of his photos on Amazon.
