Photography and science behind it.
Photography is the science and art of capturing lights by recording it electronically using the image sensor of the camera or chemically by effecting light-sensitive material such as a film surface to manufacture an image called photo.
The world’s first photograph
View from the Window at Le Gras is a heliographic image and the oldest surviving camera photograph. It was created by Nicéphore Niépce in 1826 or 1827 at Saint-Loup-de-Varennes, France, and shows parts of the buildings and surrounding countryside of his estate, Le Gras, as seen from a high window. Here is the original plate on display at the Ransom Center in 2004.
The earliest known surviving heliographic engraving, (A man leading a horse )printed from a metal plate made in 1825 by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce (1765-1833) using his heliographic process. The plate was exposed under an ordinary engraving and copied it by photographic means. This was a step towards the first permanent photograph from nature taken with a camera obscura. Heliography was also used to capture a scene directly from nature with a camera. The Bibliothèque nationale de France bought it for €450,000 in 2002, deeming it as a national treasure.
The word of photographs came from the Greek language φῶς (Phos )meaning light and γραφή (graphê) means drawing or writing and these two words together are the real meaning of the photography which is drawing with light and the process of creating an image is called photography.

Principale of the optic in photography
Holes in the canopy of tree project images of partial eclipse onto the ground is sample explanation of pinhole photography principle which is the base of how photography works. as you can use the lights to turn the wold upside down, Camera obscura. Light enters a dark box through a small hole and creates an inverted image on the wall opposite the hole.

Power of the photography
Power of the photography will give you the vision and feel of the moments that been captured to transfer the meaning of the scene and it had huge power to affect a wide range of the people as its printable and transferable.
Fake news and propaganda using the same power in opposite way to deliver a wrong message and brainwash people toward their own purpose.
Sometime you will need a personal photographer to tell your story as the illusion it can appear during the process by mistake or willingly to review and confirm the shots.
The honesty of the photographer its not about his or her personality it’s about how they could save the moment in the shot to not lose the meaning of what was happening.
Photography is about freezing the time and record it close to the reality but vision and attitude of the photographers, the control they have over the gear they use, and the possibility of the capturing moments it can affect the reality.
Different devices can be used to capture the image.
There are many subjects that are far from our reach but with improvements of the technology and knowledge we are now able to capture some of the unbelievable reality of the universe by using remote lenses and cameras capability such as The cosmic microwave background by Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe called WMAP
Nine years of WMAP data. The image reveals 13.77 billion years old temperature
