First occurrence:

On August 19, 1839
the French government announced the invention of a photographic processes, the daguerreotype, as a gift free to the world!

Daguerreotype was invented by artist and photographer Louis Daguerre. It was one of the first techniques to make photographs with incredibly high resolution.

Leaving this technique free to use and copy enabled inventors all over the world to improve photography techniques in a much faster pace.
In just a few decades the daguerreotype was replaced by easier and cheaper alternatives.
And eventually we have the techniques that we enjoy today.

Still though, fanatic photographers still like to use daguerreotype just for the joy of using the methods that paved the ways of capturing the visual world picture perfectly.

First they frame you.
Then they shoot you.
Then they hang you on the wall.
