The photographers wanted people to get the idea of how big the building was, how it looked, the details, the "catalog" views.

Some of these images are not the best 19th century photographer photographs, but they were the images I submitted for my assignment, so I wanted to share them with everyone.
Here is a list of the most famous 19th century photographers- William Henry Fox Talbot, Eugene Atget, and Francis Frith.
This was a difficult concept for me, as well as other people in my class. To strip down what your style is to photograph is a more simple way, is a hard thing to do. Many people in class including myself, felt like there was going to be a lack of style in these images. I am glad I chose to shoot in downtown Racine. I knew the architecture would fit well with the 19th century style. I just started shooting everything in a straight forward mind frame. I tried to keep them simple. I think I had some success. Not the best, but it was a nice experience to go back into history and try to capture an image in the way one of them would have.
