A short story of nearly all photography

Ok, let´s try to tell briefly how photography evolved since it all started.

To understand photography we should start researching some of the main milestones on the history of photography. Photography was created as another medium of expression within the arts, but also as an instrument to capture reality.
It all started with the “camera obscura”, scientists used this effect to study eclipses and other astronomical phenomena, this created an important discovery and started a trend of studies in order to understand how light affected different objects and how the images were created.

The next big step in photography were the digital camera, encodes digital images and videos digitally and stores them for later reproduction on computers or another types of devices.



One of moments that marks the transforming moment from analog to digital was the cellphone photography. Nowadays we use pictures as part of our living experience (celebrations, meals, meetings, etc)   nowadays most smartphones often can get right the exposure, even in situations that might fool some DSLRs.
