A highly respected photographic chemist and professor of chemistry and metallurgy at the Königliche Technische Hochschule in Berlin, Hermann Wilhelm Vogel discovered how to make photographic plates sensitive to the full spectrum of light. Stieglitz, who was enrolled at the Technische Hochschule from 1882 to 1886, studied with Vogel whose lectures and publications challenged the young photographer to make some of his most accomplished early work and provided him with an excellent grounding in the chemistry, optics, and techniques of photography.
