British photographer Julia Margaret Cameron began her career as a woman behind the camera at the age of 48; she converted chicken coop into a photo studio and gathered her friends to pose as mythical or legendary figures, mostly from Arthurian myths and other heroic themes.
While Cameron's career was short, her unorthodox style (soft-focused portraits) will be carried on to history. During her time, photography was only used as a tool for science; Cameron used it for art, thus earning the ire of her critics.
