Captured light ( visu )
6 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 310 libraries worldwide
Artistic longing, scientific curiosity, and financial gain were key to the invention of photography. Discusses the camera obscura and camera lucida as aids to drawing, early chemical discoveries necessary to make a photographic image permanent, and the role of inventors such as Joseph Niepce, Louis Jacques Mande Daguerre, and Fox Talbot. Early images such as heliographs, shadowgraphs, Calotypes, Daguerrotypes and the related processes to create these images required bulky equipment, the use of toxic chemicals, and long exposure times. Eventually, ingenious inventors created smaller cameras, refined photographic processes, developed better lens, and introduced flash photography. The continued development of photography and the influence of inventors such as Edwin H. Land and George Eastman resulted in 35 mm film, the Polaroid Land camera, and color photography. Comments on the metamorphosis of photography as a method for capturing portraits to a functional process to erotica to photography as an art as pioneered by Julia Margaret Cameron. Concludes with a short discussion of the transformation from still photography to moving pictures
