BAD WEATHER CONDITIONS

 

 

The title of this 1860’s view is “The Windy Day”, with all types of clothing flying around. No wind making machines in those days, so have a close look to find out how this was done...

 

A lot of strings or braces were needed for this nice stage setting! You can see the many attachment points on the clothings!

This is great special effect! You see an indoor stage scene. People are working on the land and they are surprised by a fierce thunder storm. A frightened woman in front is praying to God it will stop soon. If you look to the close up below, you will see the special effect’s technique, used for this 1870’s French stereoview.

 

Wires are attached to the floor and the ceiling, giving the rain-effect. Behind you see lightning, shown on the backdrop curtain. This is really great!

This French stereview is published by Alphonse Block from France. It is from a series called “Scenes Infantines”, Children’s Series. It is titled La Pluie, “The Rain”. And indeed you can see it is raining cats and dogs! How was this done? See below! Again, a very smart photographer!

 

No wires. They are scratches on the glass negative! Great!
