What is photography?30 December 2020 ❤ 6
What is photography? Photography is the art, craft, and discipline of making photographs by taking light, either by means of an optical lens, through an optical lens, or chemically through a light-sensitive substance like photographic film, to capture light. In order to take a photograph, one needs either a digital camera or a film camera, and the ability to see clearly with a minimum of light and to use the appropriate equipment in dim or dark places. A photographer must be able to control all the conditions, such as lighting, angles, distances, and speed, so that the image he/she makes is as near to perfect as possible.
Can you tell what is photography from real life? It can't be learned only from books. For example, I took a photograph of my dog jumping on a rug, while I stood in front of my house with the dog on my shoulders. I told the story to my niece, who was fascinated, because it was a "real photograph." She thought to herself, "That's the kind of photography I want to become a photographer." That's how photography works, regardless of what the photographer views it as.
