Talbot tried to copy the views of nature using a pinhole camera. But he did not possessed drawing skills, so he wanted to capture the image that he saw in the pinhole camera. Talbot knew that light can affect the properties of various materials, and invented such a photosensitive material. In 1834, Talbot invented photosensitive paper. The images obtained on it were fixed with a solution of sodium chloride (ordinary table salt) or potassium iodide. The first photographs of Talbot were simple photograms, i.e. Photocopies obtained by contact.
