What is a Photograph

A photograph,is really different things to different people, it primarily and historically has become a source of reference documenting past events. It is, and I am not going to go delving into the History, types and migrations from and about Photography.

Suffice to say it is a tool, which we use to record events, details moments in time for detailed study and analysis.

Many years ago, I attended a product launch of one of the newest generations (at that time) of a Super Computer. The preamble to this "unveiling" was a demonstration on two of the latest developments of the camera.

  1. The Camera-less Film
  2. The Film-less Camera

This was way back in the Mid to Late '80's.

The Camera-Less Film

The "Camera", was actually the packaging for the film. Much like a smaller version of a "Brownie Box", only it was disposable, single use only. The film would then go to the labs and be processed, you paid for and picked your Negatives, Prints and next "Camera".

The Film-Less Camera

This was the birth of the first digital camera, this is where light was stored as light. You then entered that world Pixels, and all sorts of strange technology.

Your Home PC was your darkroom, your software packages your developers. Your printer printed your photographs.

The whole world changed. It became digital, your images could be enhanced and used in a myriad of ways.

Thanks Carco, appreciate your comments. Photography, is a ocean, everchanging and with its own moods, as well as currents.

One must always be open and explore its challanges.

Wow, very cool. I especially liked the teapot (?) when you played with Grandma - I mean gamma!! The rustic ladder is also awesome.

Thanks Ardie, the teapot was one of those that had to go in, Grandma AKA as Gamma is fun, the spectrum of light and the blending is quite exciting to "play" with.
