The birth of photography

The world's most expensive photo. $2.9 million.

The guys over Neatorama posted this great article on the meager beginnings of photography. The photo above could be the world’s first portrait although I’ve seen other photos that share the distinction. To me, the low-tech analog nature of these old processes produce amazing images. Another lesson in not relying on technology to make great iamges. Check out the article and let me know what you think. Anyone out there still using film? How about Daguerrotype?

This could be the first portrait ever.
