The Power of Prayer
5 MANIFESTING RITUALS
Caitlin, if you would like to see an excellent historical source on Whistler's Mother, I can thoroughly reccomend Mr Bean: The Movie (1997).
"I never watched Loony Tunes". Ah, the drawbacks of becoming a death mother.
Instacorpse of course.
What kind of lighting equipment did they use for photography back then I wonder? Did they have soft boxes?
One of my family’s friends has a death photo of a baby from his family. Thing is so creepy and he has it hanging in his house 😂. It’s all propped up on a chair and they have the eyes wide open so unnaturally it’s so freaky
I thought you said that post mortem pics didn't exist
Tintype: super-long exposureSuper-short development and picture delivery.
My age is showing: I took a lot of film camera photography, and even a week at the developer at Walgreens was the soonest I could get to see them.
Even when "Next – Day" or "same – day" development service was introduced, I opted for the week – long wait for processing because I needed to stretch my pennies as a tween and teen.
Excellent! Very interesting
This was so cool. It's really intresting to see what the actual process for these pictures entails. Thanks to everyone involved! What happened to the finished plates? Did the museum keep them for their collection or did everyone involved get one or did the artist keep them?
Recreate the spirit photography!
The entire plot of the mister bean movie revolves around that painting
Sometimes I forget that Caitlin's 6'1".
You are SO FUNNY! I love how you can combine humor and education!!!
TicTok is where it’s at. Can you imagine the futur, we TicTok funerals. Stay tuned for part 35
I’m an Australian and I know what Whistlers Mother was. You’re so cute 🤩
Caitlin, Why were the wool dresses treated with arsenic? I've never heard of that.
i'm a simple man: i see Caitlin post, i click, i like, i rejoice
This was so fascinating! It's crazy how far photography has come in such a short time
I really appreciate this video as a large format film photographer. I’ve always wanted to try tintypes and it was awesome to see the process from your perspective as well as the photographer’s
Your corpse makeup is my everyday non-makeup face…
Well this was awesome love your shows☠☠☠
Hey, wait, what's up? I'm a patreon but my name doesn't appear. Is there a limit on the level in order to get you name on? I do like a good pin, though, so may need to up it. Given that I'm an Aussie… that's twice as expensive for me 🙂 You are worth it.
these videos are perfect to learn English)) at least in my family)
I always watched loony tunes as a kid and I sometimes still do when the opportunity presents itself.
Caitlyn is the best
OR IS iiiiiiiiiit? LMAO
ye old melodrama lmao
Boomers: Ok, Victorian
Wanting some more bentham's head. Loving the tin photos. I get people not wanting to stand still for under a minute but why not for important days like weddings. How romantic is it to be able to say my love will last as long as this tin photo?
you sound like the ‘some of y’all are fat and ugly and unattractive’ girl at the beginning 😭
Of course we still have tin type photographs from the 1850s (AND before),just like we have paper film photographs from that time, also. Why would the tin types be gone? Lol. If they were kept, they're still here to see.
this is so cool
So as I figured in Victorian era it was much better, easier to be dead than to be a mourner ahahahah
this is all so interesting! now i want some photos to be developed into tin type ones so they stay intact for a long time
I need to see that spirit photo video!!!
The interesting Victorian death photographs are the ones where the deceased is propped up and posed with the living. You can spot the corpse by the lack of motion blur on their body as opposed to slight motion blur on the living who are trying to remain motionless during the extended exposure needed for tintype photography.
Please recreate a daguerreotype photo from the 1840s!
My Dad found a leather tin type album when he was redoing our family kitchen. It was built in 1854. It's crazy to see yourself and relatives in someone else in a different period.
Thank you for this! I've always been fascinated by this old type of photography but especially the postmortem photographs. This was so fun and informative!
Whistler's mother… Ah yes the painting mr Bean ruins and then fixes in the movie
By definition: Can noise exist in a void? Or am I thinking of a vacuum? Huh.
How have you not heard of whistlers mother? I learnt it from the Mr Bean movie lol
I learned it from Looney Tunes. Yes I know exactly who they were referring to. Lol😂
You are what my life was missing ❤️ lol
I freaking love you.
Liking and commenting for the YouTube algorithm.
Before you go "progressive" and turn everyone into fertilizer or Soylent Green, how about fixing the ethics of the funeral industry? It is well known that funeral directors have the same level of respect as used car salesmen when it comes to overcharging and under-delivering. The difference being funerals are not optional like buying a used car. Plus the family is in deep shock and mourning and thus more easily taken advantage off by the funeral industry.
Whistles mother I learnt about in the Bean movie.
This is the most hipster thing I have ever seen. Those poseurs with their typewriters and vintage film cameras and scarves they wear in Summer are just green with envy.
I love your videos and channel. Have you ever thought of doing an Elvira or Vampira recreation video? I think you would be a great fit for both😊.
I am SHOCKED and APPALLED that you missed the obvious opportunity to take a tintype photo of your avocado salad/sandwich/lunch.
It would have been the perfect cherry on the top to this lovely episode. SHAME. 😉
Heya! Have you considered collabing with Unnus Annus? They’re a YouTube channel based on the inevitability of death, the kicker is that they’ll delete their channel by the end of the year. I think you’d be a great collaboration with them.
Lol i saw your video being linked on facebook. I was so excited, the order is spreading
Because of this channel I asked that a picture be taken of my family with my grandmother minutes before she passed away. I’m really glad I have that image.
Did anyone else notice the odd noise behind the talking starting around 11:36 – 12:27 ? Sort of like, some blinds being obnoxiously shook with each word. No biggie, just wondered …
I love your videos. Thanks for being the best part of YouTube
Great history and photography lesson! My family has tintypes from ~1880s, and I never knew the images were flipped.
Whistler came home one day to find his mother scrubbing the floor. He exclaimed, "Are you off your rocker?!"
Ostracised is that being banned from Australia ? Those are really lovely images
"Noise in a void" (When my boss is talking to me!)
You haven't seen the Mr Bean movie and it shows 😂😉
Yes, I took a picture of my mother in her casket.
So look forward to anything you post. Imaginative, creative, informative, and fun. Thank you for being you.
omg you must watch the episode of mr bean where they find the whistler's mother! 😀
how funny that it was a thing in the 19th to prop up the dearly departed and have a photo taken
whistler's mother more about the title than the painting. catchy
Very interesting video on the postmortem photos of corpses I'd seen so many of these corpses photos in books and movies but had no idea how or why they were made. It's funny how sort of open the Victorians were to death compared to how closed off we modern people are to it now. It's true that you can learn a lot about a society but how they treat their dead
AAM is the best at giving u exactly what you had no idea you needed in your life! 😄 Thank you for your creepy dedication & contribution to the death community. Keep rockin'!🤘🖤
It's obviously Tinstagram, right?
They did these photos so perfectly, you guys should auction them off.
I noticed that the coffin that you used was unlined. Would the fancier Victorian era coffin normally be lined in any way? Great video! 🖤
“…And to crush my competition…” 😂😂
I’ll always regret not getting a tintype done at a local tattoo convention years ago because I didn’t like the clothes I had on that day. ☹️
I haven’t seen them since.
My Mom’s 5 month old baby brother was laid out in the breezeway after he passed away from a liver disease. That was 1945 in Cleveland, OH. Death is so far away nowadays.
I like corpse caitlin
As a photographer I'm out here wantin to bring back the mourning photos
That poor sweetie at 18:34. Her family must have been devastated.
This was fun to watch, it's so awesome to see you working with these other amazing people.I ordered a copy of your book from the UK, and it arrived just the other day. It's so great and funny, can't wait to finish it!
Also, you inspired me to look into the funeral industry of my own region, the Balkans, and I found that there are also many problematic and very much not-eco-friendly traditions here. There are no green/ eco burials as far as I've found, and even cremation isn't as popular or easily available as it should be.
P:S: I made English subtitles for a video by Al Jazeera Balkans about the regional funeral industry, but sadly cannot add them as they haven't enabled community contributions. If anyone wants to have a watch, be my guest!Here's a link to both the .srt / subtitle and video files:https://drive.google.com/open?id=148t7DGpZ99sFanzrE6ieL2DVoNWeEVOV
My family has one of our ancestors on a tin pic
She reminds me of Nina West. In the best way.
From what people absorbed from their skin, no wonder people of that era died so young.
I'm a little disappointed that there wasn't a 🎶 Caitlin's head 🎶 at the end, like when Bentham's head would make an appearance.
Whoa! ♥️I mean whoa 🥀
I was wondering if you could do a segment on weird or possible “ghost” stories that has happened to you personally
That was all very interesting. Did Queen Victoria's long and famous mourning of Albert inspire most or all of those mourning rituals? If so, do we know what rituals were common before Victoria?
What !?! No captain's head at the end? Such a missed opportunity
I love how everything is period correct and then you see vehicles drive by. This is a fun video!
You should have the most views and subscribers ever. Your content is so creative, original and ingenious! Or maybe I'm just an obsessive deathling lol
I’m a wet plate collodion photographer. Yes, it is a PROCESS. It’s addictive though and far more interesting than point and shoot modern photos. You have to think about soooo many factors to take one photo.
This was such an amazing video. So interesting.
Time to get those 75 k !
I would absolutely love a spirit photo shoot 😁 hope you manage to do one!
I actually found a post mortem photo at goodwill last year and purchased it for $1 and I’ve tried to do research on the family listed but no luck. Still an awesome find!
I sure miss the days of the rotary phone. Can't do much damm foolishness with those!
😳 my face when collodion is literally a SFX makeup product I use on my face
