A headstone is basically known by various names, some of the very common and popular names are memorial stone, grave stones and also tombstones. All these stones are basically used for one common and unique purpose, which is to remember the dead person. In the earlier times the headstones for graves were basically made from the fieldstones or sometimes they were made even with small pieces of wood.

In the earlier times, these monuments were basically made with a very cheap and readily available material that is slate. But then the other stone which became popular was the marble, which was definitely more expensive as compared to slate. But one of the biggest disadvantages of using a marble was that over a period of time, it erodes and hence the name and the other details disappear and in a big cemetery, it will be difficult to find out the grave of your loved ones. But then marble also after few years were than replaced by granite and hence this stone is used till today. The stone granite comes in various colors like white, pink, light and dark gray. There are various methods by which you can actually personalize a headstone. But it also depends upon the budget of the individual, he will decide the other requirements and the specifications accordingly.

The tombstones very popular and famous Boothill Graveyard was basically plotted in the year 1878 and hence this ultimately gave name to the Tombstone Cemetery. This cemetery at that time was the only one main cemetery and then in the year 1884 the cemetery named as Allen Street also opened. And then years after year, the number of cemeteries in the city kept on increasing. People also have several stories for the famous boothill graveyard, that when the other cemeteries were opened this particular cemetery got completely neglected .With time, the existence of the first main cemetery only vanished.

If you are genuinely interested in clicking few pictures of the tombstones and also of the various inscriptions, it is definitely not an easy task. You need to be a professional photographer to capture all that. It requires very fine skills. A new person in this field cannot take good pictures as such. There are several points which you need to consider, when you are clicking the pictures of the tombstones like you should take several clicks of a particular tombstone from all the four directions and then whenever you are sitting in a relaxed position in your home, you can analyze as to which picture is the best and has clearly all the inscriptions captured.

Always try and capture the picture of the cemetery during the day time because in sunlight you will get real good pictures. You must try and take pictures of the tombstone from all the possible directions especially when the light from the sun is directly striking the stone. If you cannot see the inscriptions written clearly on the tombstone, then you should try using a shaving cream for this purpose as it will definitely help you in reading the tombstone very clearly. Many people have been practicing this method for years and they have also been successful achieving their motto.
