Image acquisition timeline & Reflection

For the acquisition timeline we had to start from as early as possible and note down the most important developments in photography, with some including pictures.

1031-1095: chinese scientists experimented with camera obscura, geometrical and quantative attributes were applied.

1839- Photography invented by henry fox talbert and louis dagurrePhotographic timeline

Reflection- This task took quite a while to research properly as the developments of photography goes back so many years. Trying to document it on the timeline accurately proved quite difficult when making this timeline. However i found it interesting when researching as i looked at equipment and facts i didnt know about photography.
