This is photographic film, or electronic imaging sensors that can capture thepicture. Light is usually used instead of radiation in most cases of photography. When the light isreflected from the objects that are being captured, the objects form a real image on a lightsensitive film or plate inside the camera using a timed exposure. This image can then bedeveloped into a visual image for many purposes. History of Photography Photography was initially invented in the 19th century. It created a whole new way to captureimages instead of using paintings and sculptures. The usable process of photography dates backto the 1820's however when chemical photography was thought of. The first photoetching wasproduced in 1822 by Nicephore Niepce. He and Louis Daguerre invented a new way to takepictures quicker using silver and chalk. The first ever photo taken of a person was taken in 1839with the new invention. Negative images were created in 1840 by a man named Talbot; his print isthe oldest known negative in existence to this day. The blueprint was developed by John Herschelin 1819 by the use of silver halides. His discovery allowed pictures to be permanent, and made thefirst glass negative in 1839. The wet plate collodion process of photography was used widely between 1852 and the late1860's before the dry plate was introduced. It involved a positive image on glass, positive imageon metal, and then the negative that was printed on salt paper. Advancements in photographycontinued to expand throughout the 19th century. The plates were replaced with film which is usedtoday in 1884. Colors were introduced in 1908 by Gabriel Lippmann who won the Nobel Laureatein Physics for this creation. Uses of Photography A lot of people gained interest in photography for many reasons since it has been introduced. Oneof the biggest uses was for scientists to record and study movements in space, animals, andhumans. Artists also gained interest in photography because they like to capture reality, and alsoturn reality into fantasy by distorting the images that they take creating art from these images fordisplay. The military also uses photography for surveillance and date storage. Everyday peopleuse photography to capture special moments in life, and to preserve those times in the pictures aswell as a source for entertainment. Production of Photography
