Giles Hudson commented on Kath Shawcross's blog post Blog: Digitising the Collection: From Cellar to Hard Drive
"Interesting blog - I agree with most things you say. However, good luck with removing Newton's rings post scan! (it's impossible in my experience ...) The big question with glass negatives I think is what contrast range and gamma to use.…"

Giles Hudson commented on Michael Pritchard's blog post 1845 - the world's first photography exhibition in an art museum?
"1845 would be hard to beat. Is it an exhibition proper, I wonder? Photogenic drawings were "exhibited" in the Ashmolean Museum in May 1839, but at a meeting of the Ashmolean Society, rather than in an exhibition per se."

Thomson’s Stereoscopic Atlas of the Human Eye

“One is hearing now, in this country at least, that in the near future we may look for a great revival of stereo photography, and if the rumor is well founded and turns out to be fulfilled prophecy, we may expect once more to find the stereoscope ‘on every drawing-room table,’ as of yore.” Thus wrote the photographic journalist…See More

Giles Hudson replied to Christine (Chris) Cassar's discussion Hills and Saunders - Information please
"The Prince of Wales arrived in Oxford on 17 October 1859. When after this the photo was taken I don't know - the complete lack of leaves on the creepers suggests a bit later - if the print had not been dated I would have guessed January or…"

Giles Hudson replied to Christine (Chris) Cassar's discussion Hills and Saunders - Information please
"Saunders was Hills's operator/assistant prior to them going into partnership, so probably him. Is the photograph labelled "Hills & Saunders"? The partnership was only reported in June 1860, so whether the photograph really is by…"

Millais’s Portrait of Ruskin, Sarah Angelina Acland, and Photography

The announcement today of the acquisition by the Ashmolean Museum of John Everett Millais’s celebrated portrait of John Ruskin at Glenfinlas marks a final chapter in the history of a painting intimately associated with one of Ruskin’s pupils, the photographer Sarah Angelina Acland. Lent and bequeathed by Ruskin to Miss…See More

Giles Hudson replied to Kyra E. Hicks's discussion Looking for 1892 Liverpool photos by Barraund and J. W. Walmsley - suggested leads?
"I would have expected a portrait that was published / widely circulated to be registered for copyright by the photographer. But again, I can't see that the Elliott and Fry example of Mrs Ricks was (even though it appeared in the Illustrated…"

Giles Hudson commented on pete.boswell's blog post Hills & Saunders Photographers
"Hills and Saunders' first studio was in Oxford, of course - he was originally a hairdresser. Saunders was his operator - he joined as a partner in the firm and went on to marry Hills' daughter.  There is a fairly comprehensive…"

Giles Hudson replied to Kyra E. Hicks's discussion Looking for 1892 Liverpool photos by Barraund and J. W. Walmsley - suggested leads?
"I can't answer your specific questions I'm afraid. However, I think one of the photographers you mention must be Barraud rather than Barraund. "Mr Barraud" had a studio at 92 Bold Street, Liverpool. Whether in 1892 this would…"

Giles Hudson replied to Massot Gilles's discussion early photography in india
"Didn't see the exhibition, but it is a mouth-wateringly beautiful book, well worth looking at in the flesh if you can find a copy. Giles"

Giles Hudson replied to Massot Gilles's discussion early photography in india
"Roger Taylor's Impressed by Light: British Photographs from Paper Negatives, 1840-60 has a chapter and section of plates on the calotype in India, in which he illustrates examples by Alfred Huish dated 1848 and by John McCosh dated 1848-50. He…"
