History of Photographic Process Nicéphore Niépce & Daguerre The first photographic process — heliography — was invented around 1824 by Nicéphore Niépce. Images were obtained with bitumen of Judea spread on a silver plate after an exposure time of several days. in 1829, Niépce associated Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre to his research. in 1832, they put the last touches, using a residue of lavender oil distillation, by means of a second process producing images in a one day exposure time. Portrait de Hippolyte Bayard, 1801-1887 Hippolyte Bayard, 1801-1887 in 1833, Niépce died, & Daguerre invented, in 1838, on his own the daguerreotype, the first process including a development stage. A silver plate coated with a very thin silver iodide layer was exposed in a camera obscura, then exposed to mercury vapors that induced the apparition of the invisible latent image that had been formed during the exposure to light. This development was in fact such an amplification of the effect of light that the exposure time was hardly more than 30 minutes. Fixing was done by immersing the plate in sea salted water. Hippolyte Bayard in July 1839, another Frenchman, Hippolyte Bayard, discovered the way to obtain positive images directly on paper. A sheet of paper covered with silver chloride was blackened by light, then exposed in a camera obscura after having been sensitized in silver iodide. The exposure time was from 30 minutes to 2 hours. William Henry Fox Talbot Still in 1839 , the announcement of the daguerreotype invention incited an Englishman, William Henry Fox Talbot, to resume interrupted research, the beginning of which was in 1834. in 1841, he patented the calotype, the first negative-positive process that made it possible to multiply the same image, by means of an intermediate negative on a silver chloride paper made translucid with wax. As for the daguerreotype, the latent image was developed by a chemical agent, the developer: a solution of gallic acid & silver nitate. A second sheet of paper also covered with silver chloride was then exposed through the translucid negative, to give the final positive. The reproduction of colors Photography was still missing color reproduction. The first tries were due to Edmond Becquerel in 1848. in 1851, Niépce de St-Victor showed that a silver plate coated with a layer of pure silver chloride reproduced colors directly, but in an unstable manner. in 1869, Louis Ducos du
