Ever since buying a digital camera, I can only think of it’s positive points. There aren’t any negatives.

Interesting Fact: Around the year 1800, Thomas Wedgwood made the first known attempt to capture the image in a camera obscura by means of a light-sensitive substance. He used paper or white leather treated with silver nitrate. Although he succeeded in capturing the shadows of objects placed on the surface in direct sunlight, and even made shadow-copies of paintings on glass, it was reported in 1802 that “[t]he images formed by means of a camera obscura have been found too faint to produce, in any moderate time, an effect upon the nitrate of silver.” The shadow images eventually darkened all over because “[n]o attempts that have been made to prevent the uncoloured part of the copy or profile from being acted upon by light have as yet been successful.”[8] Wedgwood may have prematurely abandoned his experiments due to frail and failing health; he died aged 34 in 1805.

  1. I started with those negatives… I don’t miss too! But right now, I remember the excitement of the waiting for the photographs… and also I remember, how I was sad for the wasted ones… there wasn’t any chance to go back… What a history for all of us. I look now to Mr. Can (my camera), He is a magic! Thank you, love, nia

  2. I learned something new today, thanks to you!
    I ***do*** miss working with negatives although I could never do it today. For some reason I find editing my digital photos a real chore. Just can’t sit in front of a computer screen for all that long…

    • It was fun but it was a longer process with the negatives. Although it easier to edit photos today on the computer but since we are digital we do take a lot more of them then back in the day. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts I really appreciate that. 🙂
