Photography is a part of our everyday lives. Just think about all the times during the day you access some form of photography. We look at photographs all the time when we visit the web – Facebook, Instagram, desktop wallpaper. We see them when we go to store in advertisements, magazines, book covers, etc. We watch television shows, music videos; films that are moving pictures.
But where did it all start? What was early photography like? Well at Neatorama, you can check out a whole page that looks back at the wonderful world of early photography. Navigation is easy, because all you have to do is scroll down and read. Most of the topics covered as you scroll down also have links (they are in bold) that will take you to more information about that subject. Just click the link to learn more.
The site starts with the camera obscura, then examines daguerreotypes, portraits, how the word photography is coined, photo montages and more. Some of the links go to wiki articles that have even more links that you can check out to learn more.
What I really loved about this article was that they provide images of each type that they discuss, so you can see what each development in photography looked like, and then you can follow the links if any specific part catches your attention!
