Photographic history is beautifully displayed on this interactive website.

So admittedly, I am a bit geeky when it comes to image capture (photography and video) and also about web design. This site brings together both those loves into an interactive photographic history lesson that you definitely need to check out. From the first camera to the iPhone, the details on this site would really be useful (hint, hint) when preparing for a certain GC3400 exam.

Photographic history is rich with change from the first camera and processing techniques to the first colored film to the original digital cameras, this is an industry with a rapid trajectory towards innovation. 

I’m particularly fond of this quote-

If it’s true what Henri Cartier-Bresson says, that our first 10,000 photos will be our worst, then it’s safe to say that mobile photography has given people an historic opportunity to get past 10,001. – mobilephotoawards.com

This website and the story it tells (along with how it tells it) is a fantastic reminder of how information is changing and how exciting that is to be a part of! Be sure and take the time to click on all the little icons and images for more details while exploring the site. Enjoy!
