The Advent of Amateur Photography


The launch of Eastman Kodak’s first camera brought forth the dawn of amateur photography. Before its launch, the process of capturing and processing images was far too ardous. The box camera made round pictures, measuring 2.5-inches in diameter. It had a fixed focus and a roll of film adequate for 100 exposures. Their advertising slogan coined by George Eastman aptly read “You press the button, we do the rest.”
