Daguerreotypes and YouTube


Daguerreotype – John Rochon Collection

Toronto. My friend and PHSC member, photographer Harold Staats, dropped me a note a few days back on the 29th of last month. He suggested this video on YouTube.

In this video, one of many about early photographic processes on YouTube, John S. Rochon shows a sample of his daguerreotypes with a brief silent movie style text commentary. All this is to the strains of a piano quietly¬†playing¬†Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.

If you wish to learn more about our early photographic processes, just browse YouTube.
