Stock Pictures of Image Photography
A picture tells more than a thousand words because “photography” literally means “to write or draw with light” and it seems natural that we are able to “read” photographs just like we read any other text.
The first permanent photograph was captured in 1826 by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce in France. Color photography started to become popular and accessible with the release of Eastman Kodak’s “Kodachrome” film in the 1930s.
Strangely this vintage cameras are now very popular today, when you can take millions of high definition photos with a cellphone.
Actually many people today believe that their phone is good enough for most photography, and they have no need to buy a separate camera.
And you know what?
They’re not wrong. For most people out there, a dedicated camera is overkill.
Quicker and easier to use, not to mention their seamless integration with social media.
For professionals a phone is not enough, so if you buy a camera keep this in mind:
Pick one with interchangeable lenses so that you can try out different types of photography more easily. Read reviews, but don’t obsess over them, because everything available today is pretty much equally good as its competition.
For everyday photos, start with a standard zoom lens like a 24-70mm or 18-55mm.
For portrait photos, pick a prime lens (one that doesn’t zoom) at 35mm, 50mm, or 85mm.
For sports, go with a telephoto lens.
For macro photos, get a dedicated macro lens. And so on. Lenses matter more than any other piece of equipment.
Don’t forget you going to need some extras, like Tripods, Bags, Memory Cards, Extra Batteries, Polar filters, Flash, Cleaning Kits etc..
Also you may need a cool backdrop or a green screen.
Anyway photography will always be special for professionals or amateurs.
