      • Photography relates to the action of light on sensitive bodies in the production of pictures, the fixation of images.
      • "Photography" is derived from the Greek words photos ("light") and graphein ("to draw") The word was first used by the scientist Sir John F.W. Herschel in 1839. It is a method of recording images by the action of light, or related radiation, on a sensitive material.
      • A camera is a device that records/stores images.
      • The term camera comes from the camera obscura ( Latin for "dark chamber"), an early mechanism for projecting Images.
      • The still camera takes one photo each time the user presses the shutter button .

    • Shutter Speed The shutter blocks all light from exposing the film until you press the button. Then it quickly opens and closes, giving the film a brief flash of light. You can control the length of time the shutter remains open by setting the SHUTTER SPEED. Longer shutter speeds = more light shorter shutter speeds = less light
    • The Aperture Before light reaches film, it must pass through an opening called an "Aperture". The aperture is like a pupil. You can control the aperture by setting the "Aperture Opening", also known as an F-Stop.
