comes from two Greek terms :
‘PHOTOS’ meaning Light
and ‘GRAPHOS’ meaning Drawing.
Every time we use a camera to take a
we are reading and interpreting the LIGHT.
Without LIGHT we cannot make photographs.
Modern digital cameras follow
the same principles of light, but
there are many more parts inside
These elements are the optics or
lens, the aperture (opening), the
shutter and the sensor. The
image sensor is our recording
surface. When light hits the
sensor it converts the optical
image into an electronic signal
and our image is stored on our
‘PINHOLE’ cameras can help us
principles of capturing and
recording light. A pinhole camera
is a light-proof box with
a small hole on one side. Light
from our chosen ‘scene’ passes
through this single hole and an
inverted image is projected onto
the opposite side. If we were to
place light sensitive paper on
that side we can ‘capture’ and
record our image.
1. Light is reflected from an
object or scene and passes through
2. Next, the light reaches the
which is our ‘hole’ that controls how
much light is let through.
3. Then it goes through the Shutter –
which controls how much light is let
4. Finally the light reaches our digital
sensor where it is absorbed and
