(fun facts: The 1871 Hayden Survey into Yellowstone gave the world visual proof of the area’s unique curiosities through the paintings of Thomas Moran and the photographs of William Henry Jackson. As a professional and pioneer photographer of the 1870’s, Jackson used “wet-plate” or collodion processing, which required performing all the necessary operations on site. This meant hauling cartloads of equipment weighing up to 120lbs to the scene including two or three cameras as big as some televisions sets, as many as 100 glass plates for negative, a variety of lenses and tripods, a darkroom tent and glass chemical jugs. Unlike today’s split-second process, Jackson’s photography method averaged forty-five minutes for a single shot!)
