But imagine back in the 1950s, being a film photographer and thinking you have captured the first ever photo of a Tītipounamu/Rifleman in flight.. Imagine heading into the darkroom, waiting to see the neg… and then the first print!
K.V. Bigwood did exactly this, capturing this photo in Nov 1951 at Lake Ohau!
