Joseph Nicéphore Niépce produced the first permanent images from nature with a camera in 1827, 20 years earlier than Louis Jacques Mande Daguerre, the man usually called the inventor of photography. To make the heliograph, Niépce dissolved light-sensitive bitumen in oil of lavender and applied a thin coating over a polished pewter plate. He inserted the plate into a camera obscura and positioned it near a window in his second-story workroom. After several days of exposure to sunlight, the plate yielded an impression of the courtyard, outbuildings, and trees outside.
