Daguerreotype to Digital – A Brief History of the Photographic Process

The daguerreotype was the earliest practical photographic process, but exposure times could be as long as a half-hour. Head clamps held the subject in place so they didn’t wiggle. A later photographic process allowed for fast exposure, but was blue! Another was prone to spontaneous combustion. Archives Supervisor Jody Norman will talk about the history of the photographic process, from the dangers and limitations of early methods to the advent of digital photography.
