Illuminating photography: From camera obscura to camera phone – Eva Timothy

Code Canyon



VIew full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/illuminating-photography-eva-timothy

The origins of the cameras we use today were invented in the 19th century. Or were they? A millenia before, Arab scientist Alhazen was using the camera obscura to duplicate images, with Leonardo da Vinci following suit 500 years later and major innovations beginning in the 19th century. Eva Timothy tracks the trajectory from the most rudimentary cameras to the ubiquity of them today.

    Yes, Daguerre was actually Niepce's assistant and Niepce was the true inventor of photography. A lot of people give credit to Herschel, Talbot, and Daguerre. I have trouble finding videos with the correct information.

    Excellent piece. Here's more of a question than a criticism, though: what about Nicéphore Niépce with his View from the Window from 1826? Doesn't he predate Daguerre?

    Ah, I almost forgot, John Herschel also happened to be the one who suggested using the world "Photography".

    I´m missing a lot of people here. What about Niepce or Wedgewood? But even more important, you completely left out John Hershel, the guy who suggested using hypo to fix the images, as well as introducing the words "positive" and "negative" and inventing his own process, the cyanotype.

    Not wanting to sound partisan here, but Daguerre´s method was only successful in the decades inmediately after the invention but by the 1860 it was a dead end (except, funny enough in some parts of the US). The wet plate method has actually more to do with Talbot´s process.

    Love this narrator, straight forward, no force humor and over exatratted emotion yet still entertaining.
