Daily Quote: August 16

Quote 2019-08-16.jpg

The length of exposure (one minute in sunlight) is still too long for the portrait.
It was fifteen minutes when I first began my work.
Progress may continue.
~ Gabriel Lippmann (August 16, 1845 – July 13, 1921)


Almost 100 years later and progress continues.  Shorter exposure times (shutter speed) allows us to stop action and make time stand still as dancers pose mid-air.
