Photography is not just a hobby, it is an art on its own. It is the art of creating a picture by recording radiation on a radiation-sensitive medium. For common purposes the term light is used instead of radiation.

What do I need as a photographer?

First of all, you need to decide if you want to do film photography or digital photography. When you have decided, you need to get the right equipment for that photography: a film camera or a SLR digital camera

How does a camera work?

A camera has a few controls, one of them is the shutter. When you take a photo, the shutter opens and closes, letting light through into the camera through the lens. The light reaches the film plane where the image is captured. By using a different aperture, you can alter the exposure. The duration of an exposure is referred to as the shutter speed.

History of Photography

The first camera used was a pinhole camera. This was a box, painted black on the inside, that had a small hole on the one side of the box. Light from a scene passed through the hole and projected an inverted image on the other side of the box where the paper was. The film camera as we know it today, was invented early in the 19th Century.

Processes in Photography

Black and white photography:

All photography was originally black and white. Today, colour photographs are converted back to black and white for the aesthetic value and the 'classic' look.

Colour photography:

Colour photography was developed in the mid 19th Century. This is how most photographs were taken untill the digital camera was developed.

Digital photography:

This is the photographic process mostly used today. It is more convenient than film photography because of the fact that you have immediate access to the photographs, you do not have to develop a film first. Digital imaging uses an electronic image sensor to record the images as a set of electronic data. Concerns were raised about the ethicality of digital cameras because of how easy it is to manipulate a digital photograph.

A lot of valueble information is available about photography which can teach you everything you need to know from the earliest history of the camera, through to all the techniques and the newest equipment available on the market. You can teach yourself a lot about photography with the information and courses that are available. There is really a lot involved when taking a picture, it is not just the click of a button. This can be a really rewarding study to you.
