A Moment in Photographic History:
Englishman John William Draper, born May 5, 1811, was another discoverer of photography. He made his discovery two years before the official discovery by Louis Daguerre.
Draper didn’t stop there. He made a photograph of the moon, and photographed objects through a microscope. He experimented with making a camera out of a cigar box. He then discovered that by increasing the aperture of the lens and reducing its focal length he could drastically reduce exposure time. In December 1840 he was using a lens with an f1.4 aperture.
A Photographic Quote of Note:
Let the subject generate its own photographs. Become a camera.
