  7. 7. What is Photography? The word “photograph” was coined by Sir. John Herschel in 1839. He combined the Greek words photos (light) and graphe (drawing). Photograph literally means “drawing with light”

  9. 9. ‘View from the Window at Le Gras’ (1826-27) Joseph Nicéphore Niépce
  10. 10. It’s in the Chemicals… Originally, photographs were made by using chemicals that reacted with light to burn images on to pieces of silver/copper. Niépce used a chemical called bitumen (be-tyou-min). Another French inventor named Louis Daguerre built on Niépce’s work and started using silver nitrate and mercury to capture images. These were called Daguerreotypes and became very popular. This is Louis Daguerre’s first ever picture of a person… Bitumen Louis Daguerre
  11. 11. ‘Boulevard du Temple’ (1838) Louis Daguerre
  12. 12. The first “Where’s Waldo” It took ten minutes to capture this image This busy street looks empty because the traffic was moving too fast to be captured. It also means this dude was standing there with his leg up for an unusually long time :S
  13. 13. Basic Concept Light would come into the camera through a lens, which would direct the light towards the chemical covered plate Light LensPlate
  14. 14. Daguerreotypes Posing for a Daguerreotype was a long difficult process Subjects had to stay completely still or the image would be blurry Many rich and famous people had Daguerreotypes done in the 1800s. Lets check some out!
  15. 15. Edgar Allan Poe, 1848 Poet/Writer

  18. 18. Film In 1884 George Eastman, developed dry gel on paper, or film, to replace the photographic plate A photographer no longer needed to carry boxes of plates and toxic chemicals around. In July 1888 Eastman's camera went on the market with the slogan “You press the button, we do the rest.” Today, it still uses the same brand name of Kodak
