Photo Developing Jessica French WSU Tri-Cities Fall 2006 Photo Developing The Camera Obscura • Before the invention of photography people understood the role of light in recording images • Camera Obscura , from the Latin “room” and “dark”, was born Birth of Photo Processing Early 19th century there was a race to discover the way to permanently record images caught by the camera obscura. Joseph Niepce was the first to produce a lasting photographic image Louis Daguerre invented the process that introduced photography to the masses, he called it daguerreotyped , or the craze of having photos taken was known as daguerreotypomania Negatives and More • Henry Fox Talbot was researching elements of photography and invented the photographic negative( called calotype). His negatives were different from the daguerreotype because they could be reproduced Collodion Photography • Frederick Scott Archer invented a wet plate that was very sensitive to light and replaced the calotype negative in the 1840’s – The quality of images the wet plates produced was very sharp and detailed In 1871, a new kind of photographic plate was introduced that transformed photography. Invented by Richard Maddox it was a gelatin dry plate, and it was even more sensitive to light. This was important because now exposure times were shorter, cameras could be hand held instead of requiring tripods, and for the first time successful photographs could be taken of moving subjects. “You press the button, we do the rest.” • This was George Eastman’s marketing slogan • He produced the first reliable point-and- shoot cameras • Kodak was the company he founded New Developments In Photo Processing • Digital Cameras and Photo Processing has been increasing over past few years • It is easy, convenient, and relatively inexpensive • The 35 mm camera still is used by many for photo processing Value of Photo Developing: Pictures are tied to our emotions The Photo Developing industry allows us to preserve pictures of our family, keep history alive, have a chronology of important events, and keep important evidence. Family • Family is the main reason photo developing exists : We love our families and want to keep all the memories alive! History • Important people and events are kept alive through pictures and photo processing methods, which if they are from long ago are not up to current standards, but in the future pictures from today will be in history and other text books : Presidents, natural disasters, wars etc. Chronology • Photo developing allows us to keep track of important life events : from birth to death, we can track the important life events through the pictures we’ve developed through all stages of ones life Evidence • Photo processing allows us to have evidence in many important areas such as proof of accomplishing a task, car insurance pictures for an accident, quick access to develop pictures of convicted felons, and police will use it in many cases of abusive situations and theft.
