Photography is Important 세종오피 OPSS4.COM 오피쓰 세종건마


The point is that you can get a good overview of a lot of photographic areas that you

could not even begin to or afford to obtain on your own.

As to the degree, I never cared much for the degree because I don’t believe it gets you

much.  Where is the market that cares other than a corporate art department?  So, why

pay more for credit courses.  My wife and I took the course work in evenings over

several years and this was more my thing than hers.  [I reciprocated with several years

of drawing including botanical drawing.]

The impact of learning is that it will show in your work and you will make better

photographs and/or will offer a greater breadth of photography to your customers than

others who lack the knowledge.

Benefits of Capturing 세종건마 세종오피 오피쓰 OPSS4.COM

For me the benefit of studying photography is that it will take you to photographic areas that few photographers would be exposed to otherwise.

Some examples:

  • How to shoot, process, and print black & white film.
  • How to shoot, process, and print color film.
  • How to shoot, process, and print transparancies.
  • 35mm camera operation in manual mode.
  • Panning..
  • Photography for special conditions, e.g., night photography and snow photography.
  • View camera operation.
  • Studio portraiture.
  • Studio lighting for product shots including glass, liquid, food, etc.
  • Balancing flash and natural light in- and out-of studio.
  • In-camera editing (multiple exposure).
  • Composition.
  • Critique (peer and professional)

Background About Photography 세종건마 세종오피 OPSS4.COM 오피쓰


The inventor of the first negative from which multiple positive prints were made was Henry Fox Talbot, an English botanist, mathematician and a contemporary of Daguerre.

Talbot sensitized paper to light using a silver salt solution. He then exposed the paper to light. The background became black and the subject was rendered in gradations of grey. This was a negative image. And from the paper negative, Talbot made contact prints, reversing the light and shadows to create a detailed picture. In 1841, he perfected this paper-negative process and called it a calotype, Greek for beautiful picture.


Tintypes, patented in 1856 by Hamilton Smith, was another medium that heralded the birth of photography. A thin sheet of iron was used to provide a base for light-sensitive material, yielding a positive image.


In 1851, Frederick Scoff Archer, an English sculptor, invented the wet plate negative. Using a viscous solution of collodion, he coated glass with light-sensitive silver salts.

Because it was glass and not paper, this wet plate created a more stable and detailed negative.

Photography advanced considerably once sensitized materials could be coated on plate glass. However, wet plates had to be developed quickly before the emulsion dried. In the field, this meant carrying along a portable darkroom.


In 1879, the dry plate was invented, a glass negative plate with a dried gelatin emulsion. Dry plates could be stored for a period of time. This meant photographers no longer needed portable darkrooms and could now hire technicians to develop their photographs. Dry processes absorbed light so rapidly that the hand-held camera was now possible.


In 1889, George Eastman invented film with a base that was flexible, unbreakable and could be rolled. Emulsions coated on a cellulose nitrate film base, such as Eastman’s, made the mass-produced box camera a reality.


In the early 1940s, commercially viable color films (except Kodachrome) were brought to the market. These films used the modern technology of dye-coupled colors in which a chemical process connects the three dye layers together to create an apparent color image.

On a summer day in 1827, Joseph Nicephore Niepce developed the first photographic

image with a camera obscura. Prior to Niepce, people just used the camera obscura for

viewing or drawing purposes, not for making photographs. By letting light draw the

picture, Niepce’s heliographs, or sun prints as they were called, were the prototype for

the modern photograph.


Niepce placed an engraving onto a metal plate coated in bitumen and then exposed it to

light. The shadowy areas of the engraving blocked light, but the whiter areas permitted

light to react with the chemicals on the plate. When Niepce placed the metal plate in a

solvent, gradually an image, until then invisible, appeared.


However, Niepce’s photograph required eight hours of light exposure to create and

would soon fade away.


Fellow Frenchman, Louis Daguerre was also experimenting with ways to capture an

image, but it would take him another dozen years before Daguerre was able to reduce

exposure time to less than 30 minutes and keep the image from disappearing afterwards.

Daguerre was the inventor of the first practical process of photography. In 1829, he

formed a partnership with Niepce to improve the process Niepce had developed. In 1839,

following several years of experimentation and Niepce’s death, Daguerre developed a

more convenient and effective method of photography and named it after himself.

Daguerre’s daguerreotype process started by fixing the images onto a sheet of silver-

plated copper. He then polished the silver and coated it in iodine, creating a surface that

was sensitive to light. Then, he put the plate in a camera and exposed it for a few

minutes. After the image was painted by light, Daguerre bathed the plate in a solution of

silver chloride. This process created a lasting image that would not change if exposed to



In 1839, Daguerre and Niepce’s son sold the rights for the daguerreotype to the French

government and published a booklet describing the process. The daguerreotype gained

popularity quickly and by 1850, there were over seventy daguerreotype studios in New

York City alone.

Photography as a Business 세종오피 오피쓰 세종건마 OPSS3.COM

In 2011, the metropolitan areas with the best job opportunities for photographers had

the highest populations in the country. Ranking first was New York City, with 2,860

positions earning an average $57,790 per year, or an hourly $27.79. Chicago was next

with 2,080 jobs and mean salaries of $48,870 per year, or $23.49 per hour. In third place

was Los Angeles, with 1,350 photographers making a mean $52,780 yearly, or $25.38 per

hour. The urban area with the highest salaries for the profession was Bridgeport,

Connecticut, at a mean $81,130 per year, or $39 per hour. Following were San Francisco,

California, averaging $66,580 annually, or $32.01 hourly, and Hartford, Connecticut, at an

average $60,570 yearly, or $29.12 per hour.


Self-employed photographers had the same benefits as any freelance professional. They

could set their own hours and choose to work on assignments that either appealed to

their artistic sense, paid more money, or both. Those working for corporations had the

same benefits as any employee of that corporation. For example, full-time

photojournalists at “The New York Times” receive insurance coverage for medical,

dental, vision, hearing, disability and life. They can supplement their medical payments

with flexible spending accounts that collected pre-tax dollars. They also receive paid

vacation, sick leave, personal days and holidays.
