History of photography

It is difficult for a modern person to imagine his life without a photograph – a miracle with the help of which one can resurrect what he already does not have in his memory. And for some, it is a profession, complex and fascinating, and sometimes dangerous.

It is to these people who look at life through the lens of their cameras and is dedicated to World Day of Photography (World Photography Day), which photographers around the world annually celebrate on August 19th. The holiday was established in 2009 on the initiative of the Australian photographer Korske Ara.

From Greek, photography is translated as svetopop. Photography can rightly be considered one of the main inventions of the 19th century.

Story
The date of the celebration was not chosen by chance – on August 9, 1839, French artist and inventor Louis Daguerre presented the French Academy of Sciences the process of obtaining the daguerreotype – images on a photosensitive metal plate, and ten days later the French government proclaimed his invention a “gift to the world.”

Dagerotype is considered the first practical way of photographing. It was created around 1822 by the French inventor Joseph Niepce, but it was thanks to Dager that this method of obtaining a photographic image became known all over the world.

The view from the window is the first photograph in the world, taken in 1826 or 1827 by the French inventor Joseph Niepce.

Dagerotype was rather quickly superseded by the collodion process, but it was she who was considered the ancestor of modern photography.
In subsequent years, many scientists continued to improve the process of obtaining photographs using different materials and reagents.

In 1861, James Maxwell was able to reproduce a color photo, and the invention in 1981 by Sony of a digital camera made it possible to take digital photographs and abandon traditional film, although many professional photographers still prefer it in their work.
Today, photography is available to everyone. In the digital age, you can take pictures or selfies on a simple mobile phone, which will then make people smile, feel sad or hold their breath.
