In 1839, French photographer Louis Daguerre took the first photograph of a person. The photo was of a man walking down a Paris street. In the early days of photography, people were very excited about this new technology.

However, they were also worried about how it could be used. In 1851, an English judge said that taking a picture of a person without their permission was like “stealing their soul.” This made many people afraid to have their photos taken.

As a result, the camera went to jail.

The camera went to jail because it was used to commit a crime. The person who used the camera to take pictures of the victim without their knowledge or consent is guilty of a crime, and the camera is considered evidence in that case.

From a young age, camera's fascinated me. My dad gave me my first Canon when I was seven, and since then I've tried to improve my craft. As a young Ornithologist and photographer, I travel a lot and love to bring a camera with me. I love the feeling of capturing a moment that can never be repeated and providing someone with a memento of a time or place.
