The Site of Vernon D. Miller’s 1978 Photographs of the Shroud of Turin

1. Black and White Film 4″ x 5″

In this section there are many 4 x 5 black and white films which illustrate Vernon’s photographic and dark room expertise in using different exposure times, etc. to produce very fine black and white negative photos of high contrast that resulted in the clearest features of the Man of the Shroud.

4×5 Black and White Films are good for viewing:

  • Shroud Positive Image
  • Shroud Negative image
  • High Contrast Image

2. Black and White Films 8 x 10

In this section there are many 8×10 black and white films which illustrate Vernon’s photographic and dark room expertise. He used different exposure times, etc. to produce very fine black and white positive and negative photos of high contrast that resulted in the clearest features of the Man of the Shroud.

8×10 Black and White Films are good for viewing:

  • Shroud Positive Image
  • Shroud Negative Image
  • High Contrast Image
  • Extreme Closeups

3. Color Transparency Micrographs – 35 mm film (slides)

These 35 mm color micrographs (slides) taken of the Shroud, range from 6X magnification to 64X magnification. They show blood marks, body image, scorch marks, burn marks, water marks, wax, and clear cloth of the Shroud. They are unique to this collection. Most important, they show what cannot be seen by the human eye, allowing a scientific observation of the image at the microscopic level.

35mm Color Transparency Micrographs are good for viewing:

  • Natural Colors
  • Extreme Closeups
  • Studying Blood Marks
  • Studying Image Marks

4. Color Film Transparencies 4″ x 5″

The beautiful photos in this group are 4 x 5 high resolution color transparencies of the Shroud image and its blood marks. They allow the observer to see the Shroud as it is.

4×5 Color Transparencies are good for viewing:

  • Shroud Negative Image
  • Natural Colors

5. Color Film Transparencies 8″ x 10″

Vernon took high quality 8 x 10 Ektachrome transparencies of the Shroud using the technique of photographing three separate parts of the Shroud. The three parts included: Frontal-Dorsal Torso upper, Frontal Torso lower, Dorsal Torso lower (middle: the front and back of the head, one end: front lower legs, other end: back lower legs). Photographing three parts instead of one (the whole Shroud at one time), increased the resolution of each part that resulted in much higher quality images of the Shroud.

8×10 Color Transparencies are good for viewing:

  • Shroud Negative Image
  • Natural Colors
  • Extreme Closeups
  • Studying Blood Marks
  • Studying Image Marks

6. Color Transparencies 4″ x 5″ using Ultraviolet Light

The 4 x 5 color transparencies below were done under ultraviolet light for the purpose of studying the blood, image, water, burn marks, and the background of the Shroud cloth. Interspersed among these UV photos are white light photos (WL) for comparison.

4×5 color transparencies with ultraviolet light are good for viewing:

  • Studying Blood Marks
  • Studying Image Marks

7. Color Films from Color Negatives 8″ x 10

The 8 x 10 positive color films below were digitally developed from Vernon Miller’s color negatives of the Shroud. These negatives are unique in that nearly all of his color photography of the Shroud was done using color transparencies.
