History of Photography and the Camera
Invented by Louis Daguerre
By Katie Dayley
The Daguerreotype worked by using a copper sheet polished to look like a mirror. It was coated in a thin layer of silver. Other chemicals were added and then the copper was placed in a light proof box then placed in the camera. To get the photo, it was exposed to light. It was taken out and developed over hot mercury and the image appeared.
This is the first permanent photograph ever taken
