    • The term “Photography” was derived from two Latin words
    • “ Photo” means light and “graphy” means painting
    • The combination means light painting or simply painting with light
    • “ Light-image” is formed through a tiny hole of a plane
    • The smaller the hole it is the sharper the image is formed
    • Another high reflective plane opposite to that tiny hole serves to reflect the “light-image” for visual perception
    • In order to see the “light-image” clearly which is inverted, the high reflective plane must be placed in a lightproof enclosure
    • This concept led to the invention of camera obscura and in Latin means “dark chamber”
    • A big hole is required to form a bright “light image”
    • Hence, the hole of the camera obscura (darkroom) is fixed with a lens, which helps to form a sharp image
    • Artist will trace and draw the inverted image falls on the other side of the wall
    • Today’s camera is actually a very much reduced-size camera obscura but of course with many designed photographic functions
