Famous Photographic Firsts

I love photographic firsts.

Famous Photographic Firsts
I love photographic firsts. I've long been a fan of the famous "first photograph," Niepce's view from a window (which has an interesting creation story all its own), and I've remained interested in virtually collecting other famous photographic firsts—like the first photograph depicting a human, the first image of a lightning strike, and the first photo of the earth from space. But this list courtesy of the Lightstalking blog contains a dozen more photographic firsts—like the first digital image, the first color landscape and the first self portrait. Some of them may be familiar, others not so much. But all of them are notable for the important new ground each of them broke.
