By 1857, the New York City police department had a gallery where daguerreotypes of criminals were displayed. The Pinkerton National Detective Agency began using these on wanted posters in the United States. By the 1870s the agency had amassed the largest collection of mug shots in the U.S. In 1888, Alphonse Bertillon invented the modern mug shot featuring full face and profile views, standardizing the lighting and angles. This system was soon adopted throughout Europe, and in the United States and Russia. These examples from the 1920s may even appear as photos from a party or gathering to some, but they're actually real police mug shots. Continue reading for more.

We've featured plenty of images that were captured at the perfect moment and time, now we bring you a set of animals with expressions that might leave you puzzled, starting with the rabbit above. In addition to needing sound technical skills, such as being able to expose correctly, wildlife photographers generally need good field craft skills. For example, some animals are difficult to approach and thus a knowledge of the animal's behavior is needed in order to be able to predict its actions.

Technically speaking, a panorama refers to any wide-angle view or representation of a physical space, whether in painting, drawing, photography, film, seismic images or a three-dimensional model.

Now, many smartphones have a panorama feature built-in, which requires users to quickly pan their phone from left to right to capture a scene. Unfortunately, moving it too slowly causes disasters like the one you see above. Continue reading for more.
