William Gross Magee contacted us with details about an exciting project he’s working on. What follows is the text he submitted. We will be featuring him in detail as he gets closer to the completion of this photographic endeavor.
I am doing a research project with the permission from the National Parks Service to duplicate the first underground photos in America. They were done by Charles Waldack in 1866. Waldack burned magnesium to light the cave. To compare and contrast the changes in the cave and photographic technology, I am using the latest in photographic technology including speedlights with wireless control.
