What is Photography?
Photography is the art of showing people the world beautifully.
Photography is freezing a moment for eternity. For some, it is capturing the beauty that cannot be put into words. For some, it is paying attention to the world in details. We all have different definitions of what photography is.
However, it is evident to say we all see it as a blessing in a world that talks visually. When thought about the photography’s inception, it all comes down to a pinhole camera from our Physics books, started about 3000 years ago. Yes, it started with a box. A pinhole camera is a small device that allows light to pass through a small opening which reflects and projects the image upside down. A pinhole camera is also called “Camera Obscura” which is used by many artists to trace down their drawings easily. It is obvious that it takes a lot of patience and skill. Although, it is done simpler and easy when you capture an image said Nicephor Niepe.
Our Professional Photography course in Hyderabad teaches you to master the art of talking with frames. For an image to be permanent, Niepce tried all the strange things, including adding helium to Camera Obscura and a lot more. After 6 years of constant trial and error, his dedication paid off and he found the formula. There it comes; Click: the first photo was taken in the year 1826. The photo speaks the scene from the upstairs of this window. There was constant evolution in the photography world after that and it was seen an expensive asset until Kodak came into the picture.
