I chose the topic “History Of Photography” because, I thought that, now, you get
your digital camera, you press a button and you get a photo in color; with any type of
work. But two centuries ago that was totally impossible. The first photograph was a
revolutionary notice around the whole world and the photograph wasn’t even in
color.I’m going to explain you all about this theme, starting with:
In 1826 the French inventor Joseph Nicéphore Niépice made the first mundial
photograph. Joseph Nicéphore Niépice made this photograph by experimenting with
some materials that a scientist called Johan Henrich Schultz, had discovered long time
ago. This little photograph is the photograph that made him so famous.
is the first world photograph. As I told you
before, this photo isn’t in color and ¿Did you know that Joseph Nicéphore Niépice did
it after 8 hours of working with little cables and buttons? The title of this famous photo
isn’t so famous but it is: “View from the window atLe Gras”.From the title we can find
were it was made (from a window at Le Gras for the “stupid people”). This is the photo
that the world wanted to see . “THE PHOTO”!!!Loads of people had waited years to
see that simple photo and when it arrived those people were totally impresed because
one of their dreams had come true. This was the most important day in all the whole
history of photography. After this photo Joseph Nicéphore Niépice did more famous
photographs around the world. He died very young after dedicating all his life to the
photographs that made him famous. But not all the history of photograph is that photo,
no!!! There are other important dates like the day that James Clerk Maxwell did the first
COLOR photograph. For more information put another coin of 0.50€. Just joking. If
you want to know more about the history of photography just turn the page.

36 years later, in 1862, a Scottish physicist called James Clerk Maxwell did the
first COLOR photograph!!!! This was another revolutionary notice all around the
world. This is the photo
I know you think that this foto is just totally stupid
“it’s just an ordinary ribbon” or “it’s not so interesting”. For us it isn’t interesting but
for them, in those times, it was “a miracle”.Here are some other important dates in the
history of photography,just for your own interest:
