Photography was commercially introduced in 1839 when Louis Daguerre developed the daguerreotype which was the first publicly announced photographic process. Over the years, it has evolved thanks to the different technical discoveries and it has had a huge impact on society.
Capturing the perfect photograph is all about being in the right place at the right time. Things can happen in the blink of an eye without ever being repeated. We hope you enjoy this post about perfectly timed street photography!

Photography is the science, art, application and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film.

This picture is quite powerful
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. With an electronic image sensor, this produces an electrical charge at each pixel, which is electronically processed and stored in a digital image file for subsequent display or processing.

The result with 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.
Photography is employed in many fields of science, manufacturing (e.g., photolithography) and business, as well as its more direct uses for art, film and video production, recreational purposes, hobby, and mass communication.
The word "photography" was created from the Greek roots (phōtos), genitive of (phōs), "light" and γραφή (graphé) "representation by means of lines" or "drawing", together meaning "drawing with light".
