Do you when and where was the first Photograph taken?
You probably may not because Even I was not knowing but after doing a lot of research I appeared up with this post.
In this year 2018, almost everyone has a camera on their smartphone and high-end DSLR cameras to click pictures. Each day some crores of new photos are being clicked by people all over the world. And will be clicked tomorrow and in future.
But do you know which was the first or the oldest photograph that got clicked? What picture is must be? How must it have pictured?
Ok!! Now let us go into the details of the oldest photograph that was ever existed.
In the year 1825, a French inventor using heliography process took a picture of an engraving. But using the camera, Joseph Nicephone Niepce, a French inventor had clicked the oldest photo in the year 1826 or 1827. This makes the photograph 190 years old. He captured the outside view from his window in Burgundy, France.
He has taken this photograph with the help of camera obscura which it took him eight long hours. In the year 1963, Ransom center has acquired it to permanently exhibit at the University of Texas. Like any other invention in the world, it is so important and special to remember the first things that came into existence.
The first photo of a person:
This photograph was taken by a man called Louis Daguerre in the year 1838 which has two men captured in it.
It is believed to be the first photo of a human being. This is viewed as the first portrait. The picture is of a beautiful view of Boulevard du Temple of Paris. In this photo, you can see a man polishing the shoes of another near the bottom left of the photography. This is said to be the first mirror image and even though the street had many cars when it was being clicked, it was printed as an empty street due to the 10-minute long exposure.
The first selfie of a person:
Robert Cornelius who is an American photographer captured this photograph of himself in the year 1839 becoming the first portrait in the history of photography. In the modern age, this portrait is known as the selfie.
The picture has Robert Cornelius’s face and shoulder and his arms that are crossed. It is said that “the first light picture ever was taken” written on its back. And this stands as the start of self-portrait photography in history.
First group selfie photograph:
In the year 1920, the first group selfie was taken by a group of 5 men. When the photo was taken the cameras can be held in hands and click pictures.
The 5 men named Joseph Byron, Pirie MacDonald, Colonel Marceau, Pop Core and Ben Falk stood side by side and posed for the photograph with their arms outstretched and in a joyful mood.
The first photograph of the Sun:
The picture of Sun was clicked on 2nd April 1845 by two French physicists named Louis Fizeau and Leon Foucault. They had used daguerreotype photographic process in click the sun which was created after1/60 of a second. The size of the photo is 4.7 inches and it is clearly zoomed in to see the spots on the Sun.
