Daguerreotypes - Photographers of note

Daguerreotypes needed to be encased behind glass and did not lend themselves to direct publication, although many attempts were made to process them to enable them to be used as printing plates. The greatest of the early publications based on them was undoubtedly the 'Excursions daguerriennes' (1840-1844) of NoŽl-Marie Paymal Lerebours. Several of the plates used for this were produced using an etching process developed by Armand Hippolyte Louis Fizeau (1819-1896), but the plates still required extensive retouching by hand. The other plates used in the work, and almost all other published works from daguerreotypes were made either by direct hand engraving onto a daguerreotype plate, or, more usually, by tracing the image onto a copper plate that was manually engraved.
