What’s in a smile?
The camera was first developed in the early 1800s, and ever since, it has been an incredible tool for documenting the history of human life!
What is more fascinating than capturing a moment that can last a lifetime? Especially of a loved one with a glorious smile!
Although This was not always the case . Capturing pearly whites was not a common practice by photographers of the Victorian and Edwardian eras until the 1920s and 30’s arrived.
Some say it was because people had poor dental hygiene, and others claim it was because early cameras had very long exposure times, and holding a smile was not practical.
Some say the smile wasn’t even invented until the 20th century.
Thanks to modern dentistry and photographic technology, we have embraced the smile as the most joyous expression!
This unique portrait of a smiling woman is reminiscent of the Mona Lisa. Slightly mischievous in a garden of colors, patterns, and textures.
A beautiful composition of directional lines, crisp contrasts, and a surreal glow.
There are as many smiles as there are faces. You are bound to see them at cherished events, family occasions, memorable engagements, and of course, wedding celebrations!
Keep smiling :)
