Come on! Tell me! Hmmm… Nope! Tell me your secret!! No! Hey guys! Chill out, what’s going on? I want to know how he is so photogenic. See… he always, always looks amazing! Grr! I need that skill! Take it easy, Pop, we’ll help you.
Hey guys, you know what to do… Pleeease, Hector! Oh, okay. I’ll show you
where I learned to pose… Follow me! Paris, 1836. This is Louis Daguerre’s studio… Here is where I learned how to be patient. In order to get your photo taken,
you had to keep still for 10 minutes! Bonjour, guys! Hello, Mr. Daguerre!
How did you get these images? I’ll show you. The light goes through this lens
into the dark box. It then projects onto this metallic plate, which is covered with chemicals
that react to the light, and, after different chemical processes,
the image is fixed! Voilá! I call them daguerroypes. Huh? Oh… so you’ve been practicing
since the beginnings of photography! No, in fact the first photographs
were taken by Joseph Niépce, Daguerre tried to take
all the credit after his death. Hey!
Oh, yes, that’s true… *Whistles* Oh! So I have to see Niépce!
Hector, where is he? In Burgundy, 1826. How wonderful, eh? I will name it “View from
the Window at Le Gras” Joseph, are you here? Oh, I believe he’s out. Look! It’s his camera! It’s huge! Oh no, no no! STOP! You’ve moved the camera from its place! What’s the problem with that? Each picture needs more than 8 hours
to be finished! 8 HOURS??!! It doesn’t matter! If I can
take the first selfie in history, my fans will love me! Here you go, Niépce! Thanks! I look awesome.
Nice meeting you! Ouch! Aaah!! Goodbye! See you! *Crying*
