photography basics

A camera is a machine that directs light onto an object, resulting in images. Cameras are an electronic device that records images. They produce visual and audio recordings of events as they happen, which can then be played back later on a screen or stored in digital form for playback at any time. They capture images and sounds by using light or electricity to produce an image for display on the camera’s screen, LED monitor, TV/monitor, smartphone or in print.

It’s important to understand your camera

Different types of cameras and photography equipment can be found in the photography industry, including digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, viewfinder or rangefinder cameras, twin-lens reflex camera systems, mirrorless interchangeable lens system (MILC), video camcorders, motion picture film cameras and more. DSLR for example are designed to take pictures that look exactly like what we see with our own eyes while preserving the original color as well as depth perception.
