Science Photo Library. Scientific Photography. Scientific photography is about visualizing things that can't be seen with the unaided eye.
It is used to describe natural and man-made phenomena in a way that clarifies, educates, and illuminates. Through scientific photography, we can describe things to other scientists, but also to the public, which in many cases supports the research with its tax money. Science photography that is beautiful and otherwise aesthetically pleasing is able to capture the imagination of the viewer to a degree unlike any other style of photography.
Something about images of things never scene before: witness the fascination with the remarkable space photographs brought back by the Hubble telescope. Science Photography Spotlight. On January 7, 1839, an installation artist and chemist named Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre announced to the French Academy of Sciences in Paris that he had perfected a photographic imaging technology that could be used on a large scale and was reproducible.
His invention, later named the daguerreotype, was based on a special property of silver iodide: when exposed to light, the molecules undergo a chemical transformation that can be turned into charcoal-colored shadows and lines when later exposed to developing mercury fumes. The more intense the light, the darker the resulting silver-mercury amalgam. When a sheet of metal copper coated with silver iodide, for instance, was exposed to a street scene for a prolonged period, an image of the street was represented on the daguerreotype plate as lines and shadows of varying brightness.
Daguerre initially thought his invention would be suitable mostly for personal use in travel logs, art installations, and architectural records.
