Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

This week sees the 75th Anniversary of VE, so I thought I would just post this picture called “ V-E Night Impression” which was taken by my Grandfather in a West End pub on VE night. The picture was subsequently displayed at The London Salon.

In his notes, he writes :- “ Created by ‘time and flash’ exposure. The camera held in one hand with the shutter momentarily in the ‘open’ position. Small aperture (F 12.5) used. Flash bulb triggered off with the other hand. Thus a sharp image has been superimposed over a ‘blurred’ one, producing an impressionistic view, which appears to have captured the mood of the moment”
