Until rediscovered by Wilhelm Roentgen. (2013). After Roentgen’s rediscovery Goodspeed and Jennings recreated the setting of the previous incident to grasp the magnitude of the observation they failed to make. They then discovered that the disks were in fact the coins and they showed up after the film was exposed to the cathode ray energy. While Goodspeed claimed “no credit for the interesting accident,” he also said “without doubt, the first Roentgen picture was produced on February 22, 1890…[at] the University of Pennsylvania.” (2013) Roentgen received credit for the first European x-ray.
But a man called de la Roche (1729 - 1774), wrote Giphantie and in this imaginary tale, it was possible to capture images from nature, on a canvas which had been coated with a sticky substance and this would produce a mirror image on the sticky canvas, that fixed after it had been dried in the dark. There are two distinct scientific processes that combine to make photography possible and these two processes have existed for hundreds of years, but it was not until the two they had been put together that photography came into being. The first of these two processes was the Camera Obscura, which had been in existence for at least four hundred years. The second process was chemical. People had been aware, for hundreds of years before photography, that some colours are bleached by the sun, but they made little distinction between heat, air and light.
The idea of capturing an image wasn’t even thought about when Alhazen, an optics specialist of the Middle Ages, invented the first pinhole camera. The camera was used for viewing and drawing until Joseph Niepce made the first sun print. He “placed an engraving onto a metal plate” that would be exposed to light for eight hours then had to be dipped in a solvent to produce a temporary image (Bellis 1). From there a more modern photography called the Daguerreotype was invented allowing a lasting image. People fell in love with images and from 1837 to 1850 over seventy studios where introduced in New York City alone (Bellis 1).
The majority of these experiments probably have not even been recorded, however many of them have. The Niecpce brothers experimented with light-sensitive materials to make images in the year 1816 (Cross). In England in the year 1790 Thomas Wedgewood sensitized leather with silver nitrate, put objects on the leather and made photo grams (Cross). Many people experimented and played with light, we can thank all of those people for discovering things to make up what we now know about light. The idea of the camera has evolved a lot over the centuries.
Photography was not invented by one person alone but by many. There are several advancements that lead to the first photograph and they started far back in history when the Greek philosophers were still alive (Goldberg, 1991). These philosophers described a theory that showed the principles of the camera. Another discovery made in 1727 by Johann Heinrich Schulze showed that silver nitrate darkened when it’s exposed to light (Rosenblum, 2010). Together these two advancements lead to the first photographic image in 1814 by Joseph Niepce, however the photograph faded in hours and could not be preserved.
His partner started the first photographic image, but it faded quickly. One day Daguerre he found out that mercury vapor cold produces an image. “He placed a plate of silver iodine in a cabinet with other chemicals, later discovering a clear image on the plate. After Daguerre tried to figure out what had made this miracle happen, he found that it wasn’t a miracle; it was mercury vapor from a broken thermometer.” Daguerre’s discovery of an image helped the industrial revolution by helping others. The box camera helped advanced photography by its focal-pl... ... middle of paper ... ...but it also fires off a flash to illuminate the foreground.
From the ancient time probably one of the most popular questions among people was how their bones re constructed, and how they are joned. Moreover, it was alsmost impossible for surgeons to identify where in the body bullets can be located and consequently a successful removement of it was equalized to magic. This situation continued until late 1895, when a German physicist, Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen, discovered X-rays, and as a result he invented a mechanism of filming human bones in a picture ( Tice 2007, 1). W. Roentgen was an ordinary person, without a high school diploma and without having a name of extraordinary physicist ( The history of the X-rays 2003). However, he finished the Polytechnical School in Zurich, Germani.
Lets start with Joseph Gay-Lussac; he was a French physicist that was born in 1778. In 1801 he did a study, which resulted in the publication of what is today called “Charles Law.” The reason for the law being named after Charles and not Joseph is due to the fact that Jacques Charles originally came up with this theory 15 years before Joseph Lussac, but didn’t publish it. Joseph was particularly proud of what he calls his greatest achievement, which is now referred to as Gay-Lussac’s Law. This law states that “gases at constant temperature and pressure combine in simple numerical proportions by volume, and the resulting product or products—if gases—also bear a simple proportion by volume to the volumes of the reactants.” The last noteworthy thing he was responsible for is his contribution to the finding of the element Boron. Which now plays a big part in chemistry classes around the world today.
It is used to create images that are transmitted through a pinhole camera on a wall that is in a darkened room. People such as Aristotle studied the Camera Obscura as well as the Pinhole Camera. In 1814 Joseph Nicéphore Niépce took the Camera Obscura and developed a special type of paper which the images could be printed on. These photographs that Joseph printed didn’t last long and faded away after some time. But it wasn’t until 1826 when he invented permanent images/photographs.
A debate immediately began over whether photography was an art form or if the camera was merely a scientific instrument. Muybridge was born April 9th 1830 in England and died on May 8th 1904. His original name was Edward James Muggeridge; he changed his name several times in his US career. He was born just as photography was invented. William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877) announced the first real photography processes in 1839, the growing middle class like Muybridge embraced this new medium called photography (Kleiner).
