A new Twist on UpSkirt photography

  1. There are a lot of shady practices in photography and most recognize the upskirt photo as being one of the shadiest.
    Well, here is a new twist on that that I believe any photographer could get into ;)). Go to the 3rd thumbnail in the link below and the 4th will clarify it. THIS IS COMPLETELY SAFE FOR WORK! (1/2 of you will probably not click through now!)

  2. I think the reference is way too obscure for most people.
     
  3. Camera Obscure(a)?
     
  4. Don't quit your day job.
     
  5. I can't afford to quit the day job ;)
     
  6. I'm going out to the workshop right now!
     
  7. Craig, add a bustle to the design and you will increase your headroom......
     
  8. That "Wandering Eye" would need a bustle that big.
     
  9. Old twist? Or new?

    I think it's a fabrication. Kind of alternative history.
     
  10. The truth is only a little less absurd than these made-up concelaed cameras. In Victorian times Lancaster made a Handbag camera and a pocket watch camera. Other cameras were disguised as piles of book, binocularss and a bowler hat. There was also of course the ever-popular (at least among the misted-up-spectacles brigade) 'concealed oblique' lens fitting which allowed the shooter to shoot sideways to the apparent line of the camera. Possibly the finest example of this tendency in was the Skaife Pistolgraph of 1856. This was hardly a point and shoot as it used wet plate technology, but Thomas Skaife managed to get himself arrested while taking a photo of Queen Victoria. The most famous of these cameras is the Thomson Revolver camera.

    Truth is usually stranger than fiction.
     
  11. I'm not interested in UP Skirt Photography, because it could result in a nasty crack up.
