Sapphire tells Steel that the first photograph ever taken was on pewter by Niépce in 1826 and a negative-positive process
by Fox Talbot in August 1839. French inventor Nicéphore Niépce (1765-1833) is considered the inventor of photography, taking the oldest-surviving photograph with a camera obscura in 1826. Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877) presented early photographs produced through a negative-positive process in 1839 (though he is alleged to have actually taken the photographs earlier than that, in 1835).
