Until 1851 when he invented the collodion process photography, daguerrotype was the only way to obtain photographic images.To obtain the daguerreotype as the photographic material used silver-coated copper plate. She was subjected to a thorough polishing, then immediately before shooting was treated with iodine vapor, which resulted in a thin layer of light-sensitive silver iodide.
