Photography has really changed over the years. A long time ago you would have to cover yourself in a little black blanket and take your picture upside-down. Eventually technology got better, and we made better cameras for photography. We went to a point where you could easily take your own pictures, but would have to get them developed. But these days you can take your own pictures digitally, but it is still a good idea to get your pictures done professionally. We can also edit our pictures today easily with computer programs, when a while ago you had to use and airbrush and take a very long time just to make it look like something wasn't there.

At first we used chemical photography to make photos. The first permanent photo was made using chemical photography, and chemical photography was a good way of doing things at first. The only problem with chemical photography is that it takes at least 8 hours to develop an image that is a good amount of time for waiting.

Well once the camera was given to France for free use, many cameras became portable. One of the first was the Jens Poul Anderson; it had a very basic lens with a brass barrel. It could take about 300 pictures with 1 roll. Later on people got a little fancier and used some better materials; one camera with a very interesting camera lens was the Ernst Leitz. The Ernst Leitz was made out of what were pretty good materials for cameras back then, and it had a camera lens right in front of it that you could kind of move out of the was.

These old cameras interested the whole world, which started the globalization of the camera. The first few cameras were given to the French, but when other people started seeing these cameras, a whole bunch of countries made their own, like Germany and the U.S. You can find a whole lot of antique cameras made in France, America, Germany, Austria, and a lot more countries. Just being able to take pictures made people all across the globe want cameras.

With the cameras spreading world wide, people could start making businesses and people could get hired as photographers and take pictures for family portraits and newspapers. This affected the job market big-time, now thousands of people were getting paid to make these cameras, and take pictures with the cameras, professional camera people were popping up and could help someone get a perfect picture of the family… for a price. When the first few cameras came out, people thought it would be complicated to use them, which it kind of was. But lots of new jobs were popping up, and we all like it when more jobs are available don't we.

As many of us know, Technology has greatly affected Photography. At first we had the very not so advanced, non-portable, big, take upside down pictures, cameras. We always had to use film back then. When we got to more portable cameras we still had to use film. Now we don't need film but we need memory. Another way Technology has affected Photography is now we have photo editing software. If we have pimples or were mad at someone we can remove them from the picture. We can also add someone into the picture; we just need another picture of them. The Technology unfortunately, gets rid of some jobs because now people can do more things at home, but it makes more jobs in a different way because now we need professional photo editors.

Clearly, Technology has greatly changed over time. Photography has changed from when it started too. At first photography was people paying a dude to take a picture of them and then that dud would give them a picture. Today we can just take our own pictures of whatever we want, but we often buy pictures because they are more professional and don't have bad looking faces a lot of the time. This is how photography has changed over-time.
