PHOTOGRAPHY, PHOTOGRAPHERS AND YOU

“The truth is a snare; you cannot have it without being caught”

Photography is the art and science of capturing or creating durable images with the help of light or any other electromagnetic radiation.

Photography is a means of capturing indelible moments of your life with the help of a camera which by means of photographic film or an image sensor helps to record images.

The word ‘photographie’ was first coined by Hercules Florence in 1834.

Karl Lagerfeld says “What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

 

HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY

History of photography goes back to 4th and 5th century BC by the development of a pinhole camera whereas in the 6th century ‘camera obscura’ was created and used. Until 1760, variable inventions were invented and many chemicals were discovered i.e. silver nitrate etc that formed a firm foundation for the replenishment of photography. And in this year, a fiction book was published which described the interpretation of photography.

Thomas Wedgwood produced first successful images using silver salts.

And the first camera was developed in the 1820’s there by creating a huge difference in preserving information comparable to traditional theme of perpetuating information.

“A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.” 
― Diane Arbus

 

POWER OF PHOTOGRAPHY

Photographers use their cameras as tools of exploration, passports to inner sanctions, instruments for change.

Photography in this era has become a global cacophony. Every minute millions of photos capturing with ease because of the technological reformation and renaissance of camera. Every individual belonging to different age niche is now affected epidemically by the virus of photography. Capturing the moments and showcasing them to the audience is one of the big approaches too. Revealing the realistic scenarios of life to the public creates a never ending impact, transforming the lives of the people into a global village.

“I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers.” 
― Mahatma Gandhi

 

OUTBREAK OF PHOTOGRAPHERS

These days with the mondialisation of the brands and never ending trends of the trend setters, technologic devices i.e. camera, laptops, iPods, phones etc have become increasingly common and are among the most frequently used devices round the globe. And around the clock, millions of these devices are sold to the market due their stipulation among the generation.

Due to this outbreak, mostly everyone is the owner of a camera or so a DSLR. Yet owning a camera doesn’t give you the profound skills of a photographer. If having a red underwear doesn’t mean to be a superman similarly owning a DSLR will not make you a profound photographer. But skills and educations will make you so in addition to being the owner of DSLR.

“In each of you, resides a deemed and suppressive photographer, you just need a camera, a tutorial and guidance.” (Author)

National geographic photographers are amongst the greatest photographers of all times capturing those detailed pictures with such perfection that conveys the message of life scene perfectly.

Also these days the trend of ‘selfies’ is too mainstream. Everyone clicking selfies with weird faces is yet another big hit on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram. Mr. Bean was the first one to take a selfie.

 

PROCEDURE

Electromagnetic radiation or by means of light image is recorded using an image sensor or a photographic film. The photographic film is then treated after a photographic exposure and then is transformed into a negative or a positive image insensitive to light. With technology, these days digital images are encountered more.

“Today everything exists to end in a photograph.”
