More about Gaspard

Gaspard Tournachon

Gaspard Tournachon was important to the history of photography because he was the first person to take aerial photographs. Aerial photographs are pictures taken of the ground from an elevated position. He also worked on the artificial lighting of photography by placing spwcial lights in front of whoever he was taking a picture of. This is basically the same thing as having flash on your phone, but more difficult.
