Vintage Gun Photos

Recommended Posts

Quote

Many printmaking techniques produce images where the printed copy is reversed from the image made on the printing plate, so in a print copying another image, or a real scene or object, unless the artist deliberately creates the plate as a mirror-image of his subject, the finished print will be a mirror image of it. Many print makers developed the skill of reversing images when making printing plates, but many prints, especially early ones, have images that are reversed.

Yes, mirror image photo prints were relatively common then. 

The musket looks like a small punt gun to me. Seems big to be a "normal" musket.

It's almost there, but I think will never be "correct" as it seems the subject and flag (at least) may have been positioned to account for the reversal.

I noticed the size of the firearm as well. It occurred to me that it might not be particularly big, but rather that the person holding it is simply quite small.

Can't argue. Now I got to re-watch one or both to make sure!
