The history of photography began in remote antiquity with the discovery of two critical principles: camera obscura image projection and the observation that some substances are visibly altered by exposure to light. There are no artifacts or descriptions that indicate any attempt to capture images with light sensitive materials prior to the 18th century
But before you call yourself the master of innovation with some good lighting and decent Photoshop skills, have a look at some of the oldest photographs. These were shot as early as 1838 and are a mesmerizing display of photography. Though there was a lag in terms of technology, yet it could not restrain the passionate photographers who captured landscapes, humans, and even the beautiful USS constitution during the sail.
