Step out with your Cameras on World Photo Day 2016!

It’s time to say Happy World Photo Day! 19th August is observed as World Photo Day, also called World Photography Day. It is a day that celebrates the worldwide passion for photography and photos, which are the very first medium of preserving visual memories.

World Photo Day is observed on August 19 every year because on this day in 1839, the French Academy of Sciences had made an announcement to the world that said the photographic technique known as daguerreotype is one of the first of its kind in the world. This technique had been developed by Louis-Jaques-Mandé Daguerre from France and thus it was named ‘daguerreotype’ after him.

Daguerreotype was the first practical photographic technique. Since then we have come a long way with digital cameras, DSLRs and smart phones that let you capture a photo with a single tap or click.
