First Photo and More

In 1827, Niepce found the first image on the sensitive plate. For a landscape picture, the exposure time to the sensitive plate was eight hours. The painter Daguerre was able to get a picture in the dark box with a lens on one end and a frosted glass on the other, and drafted it on top of it. The method called Daguerreotype spread to the world.

In the 1840s, there was a daguerreotype artist in every city in the USA. In 1840, Talbot increased the sensitivity of his photo paper. The revolution in photography was with the process of getting glass negatives. British Archer pressed the photo paper from the glass negative. In 1868, color printing was enabled by tricromi. The process of reaching the digital image record brought the photo wide

In 1887, Reverend Hannibal Goodwin proposed a celluloid film with silver bromide emulsion.
