Jessica Seth. Pinhole Camera. A pinhole camera is a camera without a lens. It is made out of a light-proof box, usually black with one small hole on one side of the box. On the opposite side of the hole, you place photograph paper where an image can be projected on. Light passes through the hole and enters the box and projects an image of the scene on the photograph paper on the opposite side on of the box. .

Pinhole Camera

A pinhole camera is a camera without a lens. It is made out of a light-proof box, usually black with one small hole on one side of the box. On the opposite side of the hole, you place photograph paper where an image can be projected on. Light passes through the hole and enters the box and projects an image of the scene on the photograph paper on the opposite side on of the box. Slide3

Joseph Niepce

Joseph Niepce, the world’s first photographer produced the first permanent image in 1816 with an 8 hour exposure on a pewter plate after research and experimentation. In 1829 Joseph Niepce and Louis Daguerre established a partnership to improve Niepce’s heliographic process. Little development took place before Niepce’s death in 1833 making him 68 years of age when he died. Slide4

Louis daguerre

Louis Daguerre was a French artist and physicist, but he was well known for his contributions of photography. He made used of the camera obscura to develop the “Diorama”. His interest in the concept of heliography led him to the partnership

with Joseph

Niepce

. After the death

of

Niepce

,

Daguerre

found

out that mercury vapor would develop a latent image on a silvered plate that had been treated with iodine vapor. The imagecould be fixed with a salt solution.Slide5

William henrY

fox-Talbot

William Henry Fox-Talbot was born in 1800. He introduced the negative-positive process. His photographic career started with the use of the camera obscura for sketching. In 1834 he began producing fixed images on paper (negatives). The calotupe was patented in 1841 and allowed the production

of

many

positive prints from one negative print.

His

work is the basis of the photography as we know

it

today. Slide6

Richard leach maddox

Richard leach Maddox was famous by his development of the modern gelatin-silver halide emulsion in 1871. Maddox used the wet collodian process but suffered from the fumes

ofthe

chemicals, which led to the development of a

gelatin emulsion

with its advantages. Although he was

credited

as the inventor, he was only one of

the

many

working in the field of emulsion technology. Slide7

George eastman

George Eastman was the founder of the Kodak organization. He had an interest in photography but was not satisfied with the amount of equipment needed to make an image. He developed an

Emulsion coating machine for dry

plates

and went into

commercial

production. In 1888 the

number

1

Kodak camera

preloaded

with film went on the market. In 1900 the brownie camera made photography within the reach of everyone. Eastman’s Kodak company continued to develop in all fields of photographic endeavor with an extensive backing in all scientific

and technological research. Eastman died in 1932. Slide8

Digital photography

Digital photography uses a variety of electronic

photo detectors to capture and image focused by the lens of the camera. The first attempt at building a digital camera was in 1975 by Steven

Sasson, who was an engineer at Eastman Kodak. The first digital camera that recorded images as a computerized file was the ‘Fuji DS-1P’. Digital photographs can now be

displayed, printed, stored, manipulated, transmitted, and archived using digital and computer techniques, without

having to do chemical

processing.
