Secret photography

World Secret photography refers to the use of an Hiding Shooting image or Mania video recording device to Hiding Shooting photograph or Mania film a person who is unaware that they are being intentionally photographed or filmed. Hiding Shooting It is sometimes called covert Mania photography.

Sometimes normal cameras are used, but the photographer is concealed. Sometimes the Mania camera itself is disguised or concealed. Some obvious element of concealment (or great distance) is generally needed to make such photography fall under the category of ‘secret photography’ rather than Mania street photography or Mania documentary photography.

World It has been in use by British police since intelligence gathering on the suffragette movement in the 1900s. Mania Erich Salomon took images of European summit meetings and a session of the US Supreme Court in secret using an Ermanox camera hidden in his hat. Some classic early U.S. street photography – such as that of Paul Strand on the Lower East Side – was obtained by fixing a second “dummy lens” to the camera, whereas the real shot was taken from the side. Mania Although spy cameras small enough to fit inside a pocket watch had existed since the 1880s, since the 1950s advances in miniaturisation and electronics has greatly aided the ability to conceal miniature cameras, and the quality and affordability of tiny cameras (often called “spy cameras” or subminiature cameras) has now greatly increased. Some Mania consumer compact digital cameras are now so small that in previous decades they would have qualified as “spy cameras”, and digital cameras of 41 megapixels are now being embedded in some mobile camera phones. For larger cameras (DSLR or EVIL), right-angle mirror attachments are commercially available that, when mounted on long-focus lenses, can deceive the subject by producing the impression that the camera is pointed in a different direction Hiding Shooting World.
