Reading Response: Editing, Presentation, & Evaluation: Theory B p.339-364

I liked learning a little bit more about Muybridge in this chapter. His life sounds really interesting and it makes me want to read his biography. Summer reading!!! as Garth would say. His method of collaging multiple negatives together to take long exposures without blowing out the skies is a great idea, but I wonder how hard it is to make it look seamless. I loved how Frampton described Muybridge’s San Francisco panorama as “a work of sculpture turned inside out.” The lighting variations because of the long exposure times made it more interesting to look at than modern panoramas with matching lighting, in my opinion.
