Photography is the process of recording pictures by means of capturing light on a light-sensitive medium, such as a film or electronic sensor.

Light patterns reflected or emitted from objects expose a sensitive silver halide based chemical or electronic medium during a timed exposure, usually through a photographic lens in a device known as a camera that also stores the resulting information chemically or electronically.

Photography has many uses for both business and pleasure. It is often the basis of advertising and in fashion print. Photography can also viewed as a commercial and artistic endeavor.

The word "photography" comes from the French photographie which is based on the Greek words φως phos ("light"), and γραφίς graphis ("stylus", "paintbrush") or γραφή graphê ("representation by means of lines" or "drawing"), together meaning "drawing with light."

Traditionally, the product of photography has been called a photograph, commonly shortened to photo.

That's what I learn about photography so far (google and wikipedia)......... The rest, I have to explore bit by bit, but isn't that what hobby is all about?

    "I absolutely never get tired of coming to Duke9042004's Photostream! The quality of portraits here on display is really second-to-none and sets a VERY high standard for lighting and studio work. While never flashy, the work is effective and direct and always shows the model in an amazing way. Of course with this skill level, it seems that always the most gorgeous models want to work at this studio. My congratulations, admiration, and a bit of envy are yours!"
