Photography Basics

In the next week or so I’ll be a tad more techie than usual talking about the fundamentals of photography. The word photography comes from the Greek words phos (“light”), and  graphis (“draw”, “write”). When you are making pictures you are “drawing with light”.

Photography is the art of capturing and recording light. Your subject matter is important but it’s the use of light that tells the story and makes the image come to life. Yes, there are several elements that make up a photograph but without light none of it matters.
