Daguerreotype — It's a technique widely used from 1839 to 1855, the daguerreotype was the first popular form of photography. Images were captured directly on a thin piece of silver-plated copper. Because no negative was produced, copies could not be made, so each image was unique. Daguerreotypes are often characterized by their reflective quality, a darkening at the edges, and a dark blue-gray or brown-black color.
