Hahah, funny story actually. Back then, taking a photo was considered to be important, like a portrait of yourself. Your descendants would see that exact picture of yourself so you had to look serious and respectable, which is why people rarely smiled. However that belief only existed in certain parts of the world, and it hadn’t reached China yet, where not everyone had cameras. So when the British photographers came into this Chinese town and took pictures of locals they told them to “strike a pose”, and they chose to use any random pose instead of the usual serious face.

哈哈,确实是个有趣的故事。那时候,拍照是一件很重要的事情,好比是自己的自画像。你的后代是会看到你的照片的,所以你必须看起来严肃可敬,所以那时的人们很少微笑。然而,这种观念只存在于世界的某些地方,还没传到中国,当时的中国并非每个人都拥有相机。所以当英国摄影师们来到这个中国小镇给当地人拍照时,要求他们摆个姿势,所以他们就任意的摆出姿势,而不是平常的严肃脸。

Hold up op! So before film was invented, people were using daguerreotypy (more commonly known as “silver plate”) process to create pictures. Such process requires the exposure time from a few seconds up to several minutes, which requires the subject to be standing still during the exposure process. Smiling as we all know is a hard facial expression to maintain for such long period of time in addition the awkwardness that we experience, therefore people chose a more serious or relaxed expression when taking photos, and later this becomes a “tradition” in the early age of photography.

等等。在胶片发明以前,人们拍照时使用的是银板照相法。这种办法要求一定的曝光时间,从几秒钟到几分钟不等,所以期间被照相的人必须一直保持不动。我们都知道要在长时间里保持微笑是很难的,而且比较尴尬,所以人们在拍照时就选择更加严肃或者放松的表情,后来这就成为了早期摄像的一个“传统”了。

Hey! You got me. My version comes from the original source’s description, so it’s much different than yours hah. The only prize you win for being right is explaining the same thing to the rest of the commenters asking the same question ;)

哇,楼上的,你说得有道理。我之前的那个说法来自原文里的描述,和你的观点好不一样。

You’d be surprised how high quality old cameras were. As long they had a skilled operator you could get excellent quality photos. In this case this guy had to sit there and smile very still for a while

你会惊讶于旧时的相机质量是多么的好。只要操作者技术高超就可以拍出质量非常好的照片。就这张照片而言,这家伙得一直坐在那里并保持微笑一段时间。

By the 1900’s photography had advanced a lot so you’re right, except he only had to hold still for maybe a few seconds. It blows me away how many people in this thread don’t realize that photography was way more advanced in the 1900s compared to the 1800s. Assuming you had a decent camera pictures could be really good quality and you wouldn’t have to hold still for as long as you did in the 1800s.

到了20世纪的时候照相技术已经提高了很多,所以楼上你说对了,但是他只需要静止不动几秒钟而已。竟然有那么多人不知道当时的摄影技术比19世纪时期先进多了。如果相机不错,那么拍摄出来的照片也会非常好,而且保持静止不动的时间也不用19世纪的时候那么长。

Yup film cameras have changed in size and form factor but the picture quality has changed a lot less than people would think. Digital is where a lot of the big strides have been made.

是的,胶片相机在尺寸和规格上确实发生了很大改变,但是相片质量的改变并没有人们想象的那么大。数码相机才是真正的大变革。
