What's a Daguerreotype? PLUS a 30% OFF End of Summer Sale

What is a daguerreotype
and what is the difference
from an ambrotype?
 


After doing a little searching I found this website's description:

Daguerreotypes and ambrotypes differ in that daguerreotypes are captured on polished silver, making the image reflective, like a mirror. Ambrotypes use a photographic emulsion coated on glass; therefore the image did not have a mirror-like reflection. Ambrotypes were also much less expensive to produce than daguerreotypes.

There is a lot more to this process than I thought. Very scientific in fact. How we take for granted when we "click" a button on our digital cameras.

What  I do know is...someone else had to pave a pathway before us  or else we wouldn't be where we are in the "journey."

And that my friends, is my philosophical thought for the week.

What a great sale Jillian! I am preparing to sell some of my vintage jewelry and linens at a sale in our little town. It is so much fun going through pieces I have not looked at in years. Good luck with your sale!
