Photography is a brightness-based image reproduction technique. Light is so important to photography that the origin of the word is a combination of the Greek terms foto, which means "light", and graphein, which expresses the concept of writing. Therefore, the name of photography is "writing with light". Its history dates back to times very ancient, but it was only in 1826 that the first photo was taken. Frenchman Joseph Niépce was responsible. Many other people have contributed to the evolution and spread of this technique which has revolutionized art and communication all over the world, and is so present in our daily life today. At the beginning, when the photograph appeared, it was seen in a very technical way, as a tool that had a clear function, which was simply to print images of reality. Over time, the relationship between art and photography became closer and one influenced the other, until photography also became an artistic language.
So, different ways of making photographic photography emerged, depending on the theme and intention, see some.
