Presented by Kyla Ubbink
A photograph tells a thousand tales, but only if it’s subject matter can be identified, and it has been given the chance at surviving the rigors of time and use. The first part of this presentation will take you through a brief history of photographic processes with a focus on dating images based on clothing, styles, and trends. The second part will provide tips and tricks for storing and caring for your photographs, ensuring their longevity.
