-paper placed on the other side of box
"It was known in the late 18th century that an image (from a stencil) could be formed on material soaked in silver nitrate, but there was no means of fixing that image until Sir John Herschel discovered sodium hyposulphite as a fixing agent in 1819..."(Garrett, p.24)
-Camera was a wooden box with a lens
-Used glass plates covered with bitumen compound
-Took 8 hours to capure
first photo - 1826
William Fox Talbot
-paper + salt solution + silver-nitrate solution = light-sensitive silver chloride
-able to produce multiple copies
-when washed with lavender oil, it made a crude image
negative-to-positive - 1841
father of photography
-Automatic uncovering and covering
-I can see! No blur
-Dry plates were more sensitive
Multiple pictures back to back were possible with
-Rolls of film-
by: George Eastman

What is the Science that allows film to develop and what is the history behind photography?
-Shutter speed dial
-rapid wind lever
Base layer- very thin, bendable medal or medal substance
Middle layer- prevents reflections
Coating- light-sensitive, contains silver bromide crystals + gold/mercury + pigment sensitizers .
Top layer- scrach proof
capturing the picture
-silver-bromide crystals activate when a ray of light hits them
Black & White
-newer film had different activation levels
-Activated crystals turn black
-unactivated crystals wash away
First Bath: Developer
-Keeps the negative from being affected
-placed on photographic paper and has a light shined through
-3 added layers, each sensitive to a different color
