2. History of Photography The coining of the word "Photography" has been attributed in 1839 to Sir John Herschel based on the Greek (phos), (genitive: phts) meaning "light", and (graph), meaning "drawing, writing", together meaning "drawing with light. Photography is the result of combining several different technical discoveries. Long before the first photographs were made, Chinese philosopher Mo Ti and Greek mathematicians Aristotle and Euclid described a pinhole camera in the 5th and 4th centuries BC.2013 All Rights ReservedSaint Joseph-Carmona Marriage Encounter Prayer Group 3.

Chapter 4 5 Things You Should Consider Before Getting a DSLR2013 All Rights ReservedSaint Joseph-Carmona Marriage Encounter Prayer Group 28. 5 Things You Should Consider Before Getting a DSLR 1.

Funding your DSLR Stock images are used by advertising agencies and people to complement their projects. These shots are taken mostly in-studio, some out, depicting models doing one action or another that can be used to supplement any written material in the right context, for example, an executive talking on phone, jewellery photographs, etc. Selling prints gives the user the option to sell their images to people who would want to hang it on their walls at their home or office. Selling prints is far more difficult as it needs the photographer to be passionate about his photograph and come with results that amaze the peer rendering the impulse in them to hang such a photograph on their wall. Users can also put their lens up for rent though it might be a risky business and will require users to use their own judgement when picking the people who want to rent the lens. Finally, the user can always shoot portraits, weddings and commercial photographs, taking money for each shoot. Do it well enough, and you can even earn your livelihood with it. 2013 All Rights ReservedSaint Joseph-Carmona Marriage Encounter Prayer Group 33.
