This essay focuses on the development of photography. You will create your own studio project using light and motion, and then write an essay about your project and how it relates to a contemporary photographer and the development of film. The photo attached of the sky is one I took to include in the project from a drone shot.
You will research the development of photography and the work of a pioneer photographer from the Smithsonian Database. You will create your own studio project using light and motion. Write an essay about your project and how it relates to a contemporary photographer and the development of film. The photo attached of the sky is one I took to include in the project from a drone shot.
Photography is the result of combining several technical discoveries, relating to seeing an image and capturing the image. The discovery of the camera obscura (“dark chamber” in Latin) that provides an image of a scene dates back to ancient China. Greek mathematicians Aristotle and Euclid independently described a camera obscura in the 5th and 4th centuries BCE. In the 6th century CE, Byzantine mathematician Anthemius of Tralles used a type of camera obscura in his experiments.
 The invention of the camera has been traced back to the work of Ibn al-Haytham. While the effects of a single light passing through a pinhole had been described earlier, Ibn al-Haytham gave the first correct analysis of the camera obscura. Including the first geometrical and quantitative descriptions of the phenomenon. The first to use a screen in a dark room so that an image. One side of a hole in the surface could be project. Onto a screen on the other side. He also first understood the relationship between the focal point and the pinhole. Performed early experiments with afterimages,
Leonardo da Vinci mentions natural camera obscura that are formed by dark caves on the edge of a sunlit valley. A hole in the cave wall will act as a pinhole camera and project a laterally reversed, upside down image on a piece of paper. Renaissance painters used the camera obscura which, in fact, gives the optical rendering in color that dominates Western Art. It is a box with a small hole in one side, which allows specific light rays to enter, projecting an inverted image onto a viewing screen or paper.
The birth of photography was then concerned with inventing means to capture. Keep the image produced by the camera obscura. Albertus Magnus (1193–1280) discovered silver nitrate, and Georg Fabricius (1516–1571) discovered silver chloride, and the techniques described in Ibn al-Haytham‘s Book of Optics are capable of producing primitive photographs using medieval materials.
Daniele Barbaro described a diaphragm in 1566. Wilhelm Homberg described how light darkened some chemicals (photochemical effect) in 1694. The fiction book Giphantie, published in 1760, by French author Tiphaigne de la Roche, describe what can be interprete as photography.
Around the year 1800, British inventor Thomas Wedgwood made the first known attempt to capture the image in a camera obscura by means of a light-sensitive substance. He use paper or white leather treated with silver nitrate.
