Photography is the art of capturing light with a camera, usually via a digital sensor or film, to create an image. It allows people to see the world from different points of view and to admire the most different scenarios and situations captured in a frozen moment. Photography is employed in many fields of science, manufacturing, and business, as well as its more direct uses for art, film and video production, recreational purposes, hobby, and mass communication.
