    Doesnt leave much:

    The first permanent photograph (later accidentally destroyed) was an image produced in 1826[7] by the French inventor Joseph Nicéphore Niépce. His photographs were produced on a polished pewter plate covered with a petroleum derivative called bitumen of Judea, which he then dissolved in white petroleum.[8] Bitumen hardens with exposure to light. The unhardened material may then be washed away and the metal plate polished, rendering a positive image with light regions of hardened bitumen and dark regions of bare pewter.[8] Niépce then began experimenting with silver compounds based on a Johann Heinrich Schultz discovery in 1727 that silver nitrate (AgNO3) darkens when exposed to light.[9]
    In partnership, Niépce (in Chalon-sur-Saône) and Louis Daguerre (in Paris) refined the existing silver process.[10] In 1833 Niépce died of a stroke, leaving his notes to Daguerre. While he had no scientific background, Daguerre made two pivotal contributions to the process. He discovered that exposing the silver first to iodine vapour before exposure to light, and then to mercury fumes after the photograph was taken, could form a latent image. Bathing the plate in a salt bath then fixes the image. On January 7, 1839 Daguerre announced that he had invented a process using silver on a copper plate called the daguerreotype, and displayed the first plate.[11] The French government bought the patent and almost immediately (on August 19 of that year) made it public domain.
    In 1832, French-Brazilian painter and inventor Hercules Florence had already created a very similar process, naming it Photographie.
    After reading about Daguerre's invention, Fox Talbot worked on perfecting his own process; in 1839 he acquired a key improvement, an effective fixer, from John Herschel, the astronomer, who had previously showed that hyposulfite of soda (also known as hypo, or now sodium thiosulfate) would dissolve silver salts. Later that year, Herschel made the first glass negative.

    The first photograph ever taken was by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce who in 1826 managed an 8 hour exposure of the view from his upstairs window, to record the first ever permanent image (it wasn't called photography at that time).

    More information is available HERE

    So we decided to make the theme for the www.estyles.com.au photo of the month, a tribute to photography, and the theme will be "VIEW THROUGH A WINDOW"
