Photography is an art, a science, and a skill (one that I personally adore, but struggle to master). Here be a little history on this art-science-skill fest we call photography.
Behold the first ever selfie courtesy of Dutch chemist, Robert Cornelius in 1839. Prof pic status.
First Color Photo
1861 brought us the first ever color photograph by James Clerk Maxwell. A Tartan ribbon was photographed three times and then projected onto a screen with a colored filter used in the photo taking process.
First Digital Photograph
The first ever digital image was a scan of Russell Kirsch’s three-month-old son in 1957.
First image on the Internet
Behold: Les Horribles Cernettes. This all-female pop group were the first lucky ladies to grace the inter-web in 1992.
and my personal favorite contribution to the world of photography…
Now in my dreamworld I own a Canon DSLR camera,
but for now I rely heavily on IPhone for capturing images – I highly recommend investing in some extra lenses to play around with. It adds some variety to a camera with very few options
PS love me some instagram
