Photography has come a long way since the first successful picture was captured in the 1820’s.
In the mid-1820s, Nicéphore Niépce succeeded in taking the first ‘photograph’, but several days of exposure in the camera were required and the earliest results were very crude.
Niépce’s associate Louis Daguerre went on to develop the daguerreotype process, the first publicly announced photographic process, which required only minutes of exposure in the camera and produced clear, finely detailed results.
It was commercially introduced in 1839, a date generally accepted as the birth year of practical photography.
Now a days, most of us have powerful cameras in our pockets the size of our phones.
We don’t have to wait to develop the pictures and we can share to the world in a matter of seconds (subject to broadband/mobile network connection).
Now add another piece of modern technology – a drone, and you can capture some absolutely stunning images.
Last Sunday (5th February 2017) one such piece of kit was in Kilmovee and we’ve been given permission to share the outcomes with you.
Please enjoy the beautiful images from around Kilmovee as seen by a drone…
