History of photography

Few people today know that the first photograph was created in 1826 by the French scientist Joseph Nicefort Neps, who superimposed several negatives on top of each other. To take the very first photograph on earth, in the 19th century, it took as much as 8 hours. At the same time, the image turned out to be fuzzy and blurry.

In 1861, English physicist and mathematician James Maxwell created a method for taking color photographs. Due to the difficulty of obtaining a color image, this technique was not widespread, so the second half of the 19th century, photographs were painted by hand.

Since 1873, photographic plates were used, which included silver, which made it possible to obtain better quality black and white photographs. A great contribution to the creation of color photography technology was made by the German Adolf Mite, and his student from Russia Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky created and patented the technology of color photography by passing the image through the red spectrum. He also came up with technology that allows you to take pictures at low shutter speeds and increase the circulation of pictures. Using his inventions, Prokudin-Gorsky created a numerous series of photographs of tsarist Russia. In the early years of the 20th century, with the support of the Russian Tsar, he made an expedition to different regions of the empire, which he was able to capture with the help of his inventions.
