We’re living in an image driven world. Everyday more photos are created than were created in the first 100 years of photography’s existence. With an estimated three hundred and eighty billion images being taken each year. Illuminating Photography: From camera obscura to camera phone, is a TED Education video by Eva Timothy. The video is a fun and accessible crash course in the history of Photography touching on the big names and innovations that took photography from a image projected on the wall of a dark room through wet processing and all the way up to modern SLRs, all in under five minutes.
