History of Photography on DVD

Photography is the art, science, and practice of creating pictures by recording radiation on a radiation-sensitive medium, such as a photographic film, or electronic image sensors. Photography uses foremost radiation in the UV, visible and near-IR spectrum. For common purposes the term light is used instead of radiation. Light reflected or emitted from objects form a real image on a light sensitive area by means of a pin hole or lens in a device known as a camera during a timed exposure. The result on film or plate is a latent image, subsequently developed into a visual image (negative or diapositive). An image on paper base is known as a print.

As far as can be ascertained, it was Sir John Herschel in a lecture before the Royal Society of London, on March 14, 1839 who made the word "photography" known to the whole world. But in an article published on February 25 of the same year in a German newspaper called the Vossische Zeitung, Johann von Maedler, a Berlin astronomer, had used the word photography already. .

Collected together on a DVD, forty-two {42} vintage catalogs and books, describing the days of photography before the digital age.....

Highlights from just two of the titles:

Learn photographic reproduction processes. A practical treatise of the photo-impressions without silver salts ... Containing all the processes employed to reproduce plans, designs, engravings, clichés on paper, wood, glass and metal plates, and a complete description of the uranotype, aniline, platinotype and improved carbon process, etc., etc., etc (1891)

Photography in Studio and Field. Estabrook brought out this comprehesive book describing photography as it existed at the time: the cameras, the processes, the formulas, the secrets of manipulation. In the first part you are introduced into "subbing" glass, preparing collodion for making wet plate negatives like Garnder and Brady did, or for making tintypes. You get details and formulas for the developer, fixer, and intensifier. In 1887, the new modern gelatin dry plates were the rage because they were so much more convenient. You'll get details on "cooking" your own emulsion, coating plates (an art in itself), the developers in use (usually pyro), fixers, clearing baths and more. You get details on sensitizing albumen paper, making your print, toning, spotting, mounting and all the rest. You get lots of engravings of cameras, lenses, print frames, camera stands, head rests, posing chairs and the other details a professional might need for protraits. Part II covers field photography. Since gelatin dry plates freed the photographer from carrying around a nasty, corrosive silver nitrate bath, outdoor photography was not only easy but a lot more fun to do. You get the latest advice on handling dry plates, putting them in plate holders, and exposing them. You get more engravings of detective cameras, satchel cameras, view lenses, drop shutter, Prosch's popular shutter, Eastman's negative paper, printing on albumen, collodio-chloride, and a section on cyanotypes, uranium prints, and more. You even get details on "bicycle photography"
