We talked a lot about the differences between Talbot & Deguerre’s photo methods. Talbot’s images were able to be duplicated, so that they could be seen by the masses, whilst Deguerre’s daguerreotype could only be viewed by one person, were easily wiped away until fixed and could not be reproduced or copies. Though the image quality of the daguerreotype was likened to that of a mirror with a memory.
We also discussed lighting and what light is. Much discussion was focused on the nm of light waves. We also discussed light meters, the Reflective type, in modern cameras and the Incident type, which are handheld and much more accurate.
Overall, this lecture was very informational and I actually enjoyed it, minus being required to have my photo taken without warning! But cie la vie!
