Photograph, photography history information

The photographs in this online encyclopedia give us more information about the objects, ideas, people and places we read about. And photographs are used for this purpose in all kinds of books, magazines and newspapers. Professional photographers which have finished the best photography schools, travel everywhere taking photographs of places and events in the news.

But photography is far from being purely a professional occupation. It is also one of the most popular hobbies in the world. Few vacations would be complete without a record in photographs of where we went, whom we met, and what we did. Many families treasure their photograph albums.

Photography history information: color photography was not perfected until the 1930s. But black-and-white photography goes back as far as 1826, when Joseph Niepce took the first permanent photograph with an emulsion of bitumen. In 1839, Louis Daguerre and William Fox Talbot developed practical photographic processes.

In 1888, George Eastman marketed a simple camera which amateurs could use, and photography became a popular hobby. The first miniature camera, the Leica, appeared in 1924. It used 35-millimeter film - the same size used today for movies. In 1947, Edwin Land introduced his Polaroid Land camera. This camera not only takes photographs but also develops and prints them in less than one minute.

Early photography was a complicated operation. A photographer needed a tent full of equipment to develop his plates and he often needed the help of a young assistant. Despite these problems, some early photographers took beautiful photographs that are still admired today.
