A Brief History of Photography
As we've previously mentioned, one of the activities that we enjoy when we are hiking and camping in the backcountry is taking photos of the beauty that we see.
Like most of us with auto-focus digital cameras and smart phones, we normally take the whole photographic process for granted. But it has been a long road to get to where we are today from the start of photography back in the early 1800's.
If you are interested in a brief history of photography (well relatively brief since there are 14 posts) then here is a great series of posts, written by a friend of ours, for you to read about how photography began and advanced through the years.
