History of Photography

By completing this poster I learned that formatting is key. It is very difficult to make all the font sizes and border sizes all the same over a period of four days. I also learned that the first photograph was really a piece of work! it is impossible to see anything from it. Joseph Nicephore’s image demonstrates how far we have traveled in the field of photography in just two hundred years. Our timeline puts into contrast this imaging revolution, because the first camera phone is at the other end. The third and final thing I learned while doing this project was that the life of a photographer can be hard. While researching Annie Leibovitz I discovered she filed for bankruptcy in 2008 and had to sell of all her photos before then. It is amazing how such a famous photographer can have such an abrupt fall from grace.
