Photography Across Time
Photography is a wide and general term in the world of today. With a number of reasons given, people are interested in taking photographs all over their life development. People take photographs on a daily basis if not almost everywhere they go. There has been an increase in the market of photography industry. The process of making images is simply referred to as photography. The two methods involved in making these images is either chemical or electronic. Electromagnetic method of making images uses light sensors whereas chemically a film is used. With this, the process of making an image is briefly explained.
The photography industry has developed over the years since it was first launched in the early 1800’s. The type of camera invented in this time was the ordinary film camera. With time the technology in photography became better and the digital camera began to be very popular in the 1990’s. From 2000 onwards, the mobile industry began to storm their phones with the popular back camera for everyday photography. Photography has become a hand thing since then. Photography has been bought to our palms encouraging photo sessions even in places like streets.
The ordinary film cameras used chemical processes to make images. Other than the other parts of an ordinary film camera; the film was a very crucial part. Exposure of the film to direct sunlight would damage it since it was made to be light sensitive. This condition was prevented with a tin covering that was plastic in nature and could not allow light through it. This kind of camera was easy to operate. You would simply press the capture button just as long as your image is set. The button is connected to the shutter speed and when pressed it opens to let in a given amount of light. An image of the field of view is formed on the film with reactions triggered by the chemicals on it. Afterwards take the film to the next process where given chemicals are added to turn it to negatives. Lastly, the film is then processed to the kind of photos you understand in your desired shapes and sizes.
Digital cameras have been made in the image of the analogue cameras but due to technology the operation has been made different. Digital cameras do not have films which is seen to be a very important part of the ordinary film camera. Digital cameras work with the use of electromagnetic radiators. In the absence of a film, the digital camera has a piece of electromagnetic equipment that captures the light turning them into electronic signals. All the parts of a digital camera contribute to the overall performance of making a good image.
Photography has been very important to the world of today. With photography, all that matters to us can easily be reminisced. Communication especially in social media has been enhanced by the photography industry. Last but not least, photography has offered a wide range of employment to different people in the world.
