Let’s begin with the big question: What exactly is photography? The scientific terms of photography are simpler than artists, scholars, or academics. Photography is the art and practice of creating images using light. Although we can extend this definition, photography is the essence of it. Images are either recorded electronically using a sensor or chemically using something like film. They then get printed, projected or recorded.
The history of photography and the people who have shaped it
Joseph Nicephorus Niepce took the earliest known photograph taken with a camera in 1826 or 1827. This image, taken from the window of his French estate, shows the results of many experiments using different exposures and chemical agents. The lasting image was created with a bitumen solution and a pewter plate. It took around eight hours to expose, which is far from the amazing images of today. However, its impact is unparalleled.
What camera is best for starting photography?
As photographers, we know that there is a lot of terminology in the world of photography. This can be daunting for a beginner. There are many types of photography that you can choose from. Different gear might be needed depending on your interests. We recommend that you start with a basic setup and then take your time to find what you love. You can then upgrade or add to your camera. These are some tips to help you choose the right camera for you.
Consider mirrorless and DSLR cameras
You can buy these with separate lenses and bodies, which can help you save money. Kit lenses can often be used to take the basic shots that you need.
Don’t go overboard
You can only capture so many things at 12 fps. Keep it simple until you are ready to specialize!
