Photography!<br />The word photography came from the Greek words –photos (‘light) and graphein (‘to draw’). Sir John F.W. Herschel in 1839 is the first scientist to use these words. <br />‘Photography’ is a method of recording images by the action of light, or related radiation, on a sensitive material.<br />Information From: http://inventors.about.com/od/pstartinventions/a/stilphotography.htm<br />

Earliest Camera<br />The earliest known camera, called the camera obscura, was used in ancient times to project images before photographic printing processes were invented. Leonardo Da Vinci wrote the first detailed description of the camera obscura in the 15th century, describing it as a box with a pinhole on one side and a glass screen on the other. A lens later replaced the pinhole, resulting in sharper images.<br />Information From: http://www.ehow.com/about_6365118_history-camera-development.html<br />
