    Q: What is the meaning of the word 'photography'?

    A: The literal meaning is "Writing (graphy) with light (photo)".

    The term comes from The Greek word phos, photos - lightand graphos - writing.

    The word photography means writing with light but most photographers claim theyare painting with light!

    This 'writing with light' or as us photographers say ' painting with light' was firstreputed to have been termed by Sir John Herschel to William Henry Fox

    Talbotin letter in 1839. Herschel was an English astronomer who also devised thewords negative and positive and I believe the word snapshot. A lot of his work

    involved chemistry which was the forerunner of the black and white processes.Henry Fox Talbot was the inventor of the negative positive process ofphotography. He was an English gentleman, chemist, mathematician, linguist andarcheologist.

    UNSERSTANDING EXPOSURE

    What is Exposure?

    Your camera understands EXPOSURE, which is essentially the total amount of light entering your camera used to create the photo.

    Exposure describes how light or how dark your photographs are

    Under-exposure is when your photos come out too dark.

    Over-exposure is when your photos come out too light, washed out or blown out.

    (L) Over-exposed Too bright. The white dog is blinding. Need sunglasses. (M) Under-exposed Too dark. The white dog looks like a

    phantom. (R) Nice balance of light on the dog, bubbles and grass. Awwww! Precious.

    But slightly Under and Over Exposed images can be great for artistic or stylistic reasons! Images that are technically considered

    to be over or underexposed can be visually appealing:

    (above) Both these beach images have elements of under and over

    exposure. But stylistically, they can be quite beautiful from thecontrasts of light and dark.

    (above) Lighter, brighter tomato or food images can look pretty

    when shot slightly over-exposed.

    SHUTTER SPEED (Controlling Motion)

    What is the Shutter in your camera?

    When you take a picture and you hear that click, that is the sound of your shutter opening and closing. Imagine the concept like shutters

    on your window. You open and close the shutters to control the amount of light entering your room. Same idea goes for the camera.

    What is Shutter Speed?

    Shutter speed is about TIME, the amount of time it takes for light to enter your camera, how long it takes to let light through the camera.
