Portrait of a Daguerreotypist 
1850 (ca) 
Daguerreotype, 1/6 plate 
Archives of Modern Conflict OR National Gallery of Canada 
Daguerreotypist coloring a plate with a daguerreian coloring box. Illustrated is the standard box with eight bottles of powdered colors, brushes and a palette for mixing colors. The powders were so fine that they adhered to the plate with as little as the moisture from an expelled breath. (Matt Isenburg)
