What do you mean by photography ?
Many of you will be answering me with it is the way of clicking pictures or a profession.
But i take photography as a hobby or passion which is well organised and unique in its own way.Even in my locality i see 12 year old kids with these digital cameras and trying to take some pictures of their surroundings.Going ten years back,photography was just taken as a time pass and many parents used to restrict their kids from doing this activity.These parents considered photography a waste of money on expensive digital cameras and didn't want their kids to take this field as it was not possible to earn much in this career.
But as the time passed and with much more improved technology,people started to have a keen interest in taking pictures and took photography as their hobby to learn more about this art.

From my point of view,i consider this art as one of the best and interesting way of earning our livelihood.As it is said 'Do what you love,and love what you do',photography is the best example for this as people take interest in it and love to do it.

Black and White Photography.

Black and white photography is not used much nowadays.But earlier all the photography were originally monochrome or black and white.After the discovery of color film also it was used more due to its low cost and classic photographic look.I too consider it very beautiful due to its royal presentation of a picture.
Now also when people update their pics on fb,twitter and other social networking sites they edit their pics with an effect of black and white color which enhances the beauty of their snaps.I too often use this black and white effect for my pictures which gives a unique quality to it.

Color Photography.

Color photography is considered one of the best and beautiful photography due to its highlighting quality of natural colors.No picture is complete without its color and this photography provides the same thing.

color photography was explored in mid-nineteenth century and was a hit in the world of photography.But earlier experiments with color required a very long time like hours or days for camera images.And it was not possible to prevent the colors to fade from the images when exposed to the white light.

this photography forms images as positive transparencies which can be used in a slide projector.it forms a real image with its use of bright colors and creates positive color enlargements on specially coated paper.

It has become a very common form of photography owing to the introduction of automated photo printing equipment.

Digital Photography

The first camera to unveil digital photography was Sony Mavica introduced by Sony.

digital photography means recording the image as a set of electronic data rather than as chemical changes on film.these digital cameras saves images to the disk and then the images were displayed on the television.

This is the normal photography which we use nowadays as it is affordable and a ordinary person can also use it to take snaps.
