he was born on the 11th of February 1800 in dorset, Britain. he was a photographer, scientist and inventor.He came from a close net family and is best know for inventing salted pepper and creating the calotype photographic process.
he created the calotype process in 1841 which was a photographic process using paper coated with silver iodide. using this paper sensitised with silver chloride, which darkens in proportion to its exposure to light. he used a a printing out process the which meant the that the paper he would be using had to be exposed to the camera for over an hour to allow the image to fully develop.
we can even do this sort of process in modern day times, the most common way is to use photoshop or other editing software to experiment with different effects to an image. he can play around with different effects to make it look like it came from Talbots generation.
