Types of Photography

 

The photography family has so many branches that you can get lost in one and never experience all the others amazing things you can explore.  Above is a youtube playlist I’ve put together to explore some of the photography genres.

How Your Camera Works


This is an amazing slow-motion video that will show you just how your digital or film camera works. Not much for me to explain the video will show you all you need to know. I’ve loved photography for many years now, and the more I learn of how it works the cooler I think it is. Check this out and then check out the Slow Mo Guys on YouTube they have many other awesome videos.

Digital Double Exposure

This is my very first time playing around with double exposure, these were done using Snapseed on my android pixel. I’ve taken a whole lot of photo as a hobby but yet I’ve never done any kind of double exposure digital or otherwise. These were several photos I shot this week where the sunset and the street lights kind of matched so when they come together they make something awesome to my eyes, I love these double exposures so much I think I might start creating more of them in Lightroom with my some of my older photos. myfotolife.com/double-exposure

What is Art ?

What is Art?  Wikipedia Art –

Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author’s imaginative or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power.[1][2] In their most general form these activities include the production of works of art, the criticism of art, the study of the history of art, and the aesthetic dissemination of art.

The oldest documented forms of art are visual arts, which include creation of images or objects in fields including today painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and other visual media.

Architecture is often included as one of the visual arts; however, like the decorative arts, or advertising,[3] it involves the creation of objects where the practical considerations of use are essential—in a way that they usually are not in a painting, for example.

Music, theatre, film, dance, and other performing arts, as well as literature and other media such as interactive media, are included in a broader definition of art or the arts.[1][4] Until the 17th century, art referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences.

In modern usage after the 17th century, where aesthetic considerations are paramount, the fine arts are separated and distinguished from acquired skills in general, such as the decorative or applied arts.

For The Love of Music 92

For The Love of Music 92 is a podcast idea I had years ago because I love photography but at the same time when out and around town making photos I have my headphones on listening to something cool because I also love Music. The problem is that a lot of times the music stream services I use play the same 20 songs over and over again, so I wanted to start discovering and listening to new music, new artist that I’ve never heard before.

Ever since I started very slowly working on building this podcast and trying to make it perfect for new music, old school music, international music, researching for the best gear to make the podcast sound amazing, look cool, have cool names for the different episodes and what I’ve learned over the past few years is that there is no such thing so here we go.

The camera of the future

The digital camera is probably the most used electronic device today.

History 

The history of the digital camera began with Eugene F. Lally of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, who was thinking about how to use a mosaic photosensor to capture digital images. His 1961 idea was to take pictures of the planets and stars while travelling through space to give information about the astronauts’ position. As with Texas Instruments employee Willis Adcock’s filmless camera (US patent 4,057,830) in 1972, the technology had yet to catch up with the concept.

Steven Sasson as an engineer at Eastman Kodak invented and built the first electronic camera using a charge-coupled device image sensor in 1975.[4] Earlier ones used a camera tube; later ones digitized the signal. Early uses were mainly military and scientific; followed by medical and news applications.

In 1986, Japanese company Nikon introduced the first digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera, the Nikon SVC.[5][6] In the mid-to-late 1990s, DSLR cameras became common among consumers. By the mid-2000s, DSLR cameras had largely replaced film cameras.

In 2000, Sharp introduced the world’s first digital camera phone, the J-SH04 J-Phone, in Japan.[7] By the mid-2000s, higher-end cell phones had an integrated digital camera. By the beginning of the 2010s, almost all smartphones had an integrated digital camera. information provided by Wikipedia.org

Who Invented the Camera Phone

This is an awesome story of the engineer who invented the first camera phone, such a great reason to share a moment, something we do today every single day. 

A camera phone is a mobile phone which is able to capture photographs and often record video using one or more built-in digital cameras. The first camera phone was sold in 2000 in Japan, a Sharp J-SH04 J-Phone model, although some argue that the SCH-V200 and Kyocera VP-210 Visual Phone, both introduced months earlier in South Korea and Japan respectively, are the first camera phones.[1]

Most camera phones are simpler than separate digital cameras. Their usual fixed-focus lenses and smaller sensors limit their performance in poor lighting. Lacking a physical shutter, some have a long shutter lag. Photoflash is typically provided by an LED source which illuminates less intensely over a much longer exposure time than a bright and near-instantaneous flash strobe. Optical zoom[2] and tripod screws are rare and none has a hot shoe for attaching an external flash. Some also lack a USB connection or a removable memory card. Most have Bluetooth and WiFi, and can make geotagged photographs. Some of the more expensive camera phones have only a few of these technical disadvantages, but with bigger image sensors (a few are up to 1″), their capabilities approach those of low-end point-and-shoot cameras. In the smartphone era, the steady sales increase of camera phones caused point-and-shoot camera sales to peak about 2010 and decline thereafter. Most model lines improve their cameras every year or two.

Most smartphones only have a menu choice to start a camera application program and an on-screen button to activate the shutter.[3] Some also have a separate camera button, for quickness and convenience. A few camera phones are designed to resemble separate low-end digital compact cameras in appearance and to some degree in features and picture quality, and are branded as both mobile phones and cameras. information provided by Wikipedia.org

Who Invented Photography

These are a few youtube videos which completely explain who and when photography was invited. I’ve seen hundreds if not more videos on photography and where it comes from, but these are the best. The form of art that get used the most today to save and share our everyday, special moments and even some things we shouldn’t share, lol I love photography and will try to learn and share as much as I can. I hope you can enjoy this journey with me. 

Photography is the science, art, application, and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film.[1]

Typically, a lens is used to focus the light reflected or emitted from objects into a real image on the light-sensitive surface inside a camera during a timed exposure. With an electronic image sensor, this produces an electrical charge at each pixel, which is electronically processed and stored in a digital image file for subsequent display or processing. The result with photographic emulsion is an invisible latent image, which is later chemically “developed” into a visible image, either negative or positive depending on the purpose of the photographic material and the method of processing. A negative image on film is traditionally used to photographically create a positive image on a paper base, known as a print, either by using an enlarger or by contact printing.

Photography is employed in many fields of science, manufacturing (e.g., photolithography), and business, as well as its more direct uses for art, film and video production, recreational purposes, hobby, and mass communication… information provided by Wikipedia.org
