The Business of Photography
Challenge has finished
This challenge is to produce a photograph which could sell. Photographers: submit images that you think would have a good market value. Voters: give high scores to photos that you would conceivably purchase. ---- Photography moved from a laboratory curiosity to a business, thanks to improvement in technology. It was the invention of the daguerrotype which made the photography business possible: in 1839 the government of France purchased the patent on this process and immediately released it into the public domain, allowing large numbers of photographers to use a good, inexpensive, and relatively simple process to generate images. By the 1850s professional photography studios were widespread.
