How Do You Make A Daguerreotype?
Why is its photographer significant? Daguerreotypes are early photographs produced on a light-sensitive metal plate coated in crystals. This photograph is by Louis Daguerre, entitled, Shells and Fossils. Louis Daguerre is significant because he invented the process for creating Daguerreotypes
Invented by Louis Daguerre and introduced worldwide in 1839, the daguerreotype was almost completely superseded by 1860 with new, less expensive processes, such as ambrotype, that yield more readily viewable images
The daguerreotype is a one-of-a-kind, highly detailed photographic image on a polished copper plate coated with silver. It was introduced in 1839 and became the first popular photographic medium. Created by Getty Museum
Does anyone still make daguerreotypes today? Yes, though it's a complex and potentially toxic process
