"A number of inventors were working on photographic processes at the same time," said David Haberstich, curator of photography at the National Museum of American History.
"Daguerreotypes are still collected today and prized for their high quality and silvery appearance," Haberstich said.
"A lot of people have written about the democratization effect that photography had," Haberstich said.
"The daguerreotype sort of began that by making photos available to more and more people," he added.
Most people simply chose to present themselves as serious, rather than frivolous, according to fashions of the era, Haberstich explained.
"The mercury fumes may have shortened the lives of some of the daguerreotypists," Haberstich said.
"The daguerreotype process itself turned out to be a dead end, because each image was unique," Haberstich said.
