What is Photography ?

| Blog, News | January 2, 2013

Photography (derived from the Greek photos- for “light” and -graphos for “drawing”) is theart, science, and practice of creating durable images by recording light or otherelectromagnetic radiation, either chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such asphotographic film, or electronically by means of an image sensor. Typically, a lens is used to focus the light reflected or emitted from objects into a real image on the light-sensitive surface inside a camera during a timed exposure. The result in an electronic image sensor is an electrical charge at each pixel, which is electronically processed and stored in a digital image file for subsequent display or processing.

The result in a photographic emulsion is an invisible latent image, which is later chemically developed into a visible image, either negative or positive depending on the purpose of the photographic material and the method of processing. A negative image on film is traditionally used to photographically create a positive image on a paper base, known as a print, either by using an enlarger or by contact printing.
