What is a daguerreotypeand 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.
