Happy birthday to Louis Daguerre

Happy birthday to Louis Daguerre, who would have turned 224 today.  The Google Doodle today is in his honor.  Who was he?  He was the man that pioneered how to take a picture with only a twenty minute exposure.  The reason why there are no people in his pictures is because if they moved at all they would appear blurry or not show up in the picture at all.  Twenty minutes is a long time to sit perfectly still.
