Photography: The Basics
Photography comes from the Greek words meaning "light writing" and first became known back in 1839 by Sir John Herschel. For many years prior to this, people had discovered ways of causing certain chemicals to change color when exposed to light but they did not discover ways of getting the images to remain permanent until later on.
Now photography is a big part of our culture, something that everyone recognizes. Most everyone has family photos lying around their house, many people take these photos on a regular basis, preserving precious memories for years to come. Even if you don't have your own camera, you have seen photos in magazines, used on billboards and advertisements and more.
What is Photography?
Photography is defined as "The art or process of producing images by the action of light on surfaces sensitized by chemical processes."
The average person never has to deal with this technical definition because they take their photographs to a lab to be processed. They simply take pictures with their camera and then drop them off somewhere to be developed. They get their prints back on nice glossy paper that they can then keep to see the images at any time they wish.
There are also instant develop photographs, commonly known as the Polaroid, in which the paper itself contains the chemicals needed and when the paper sits for a few seconds exposed to light the photo will develop. Many people enjoy these because you could view your photo almost instantly but over the years, the quality has improved with other films and many people migrated to other types of cameras.
The common types of film are 35mm and 110. These film rolls come in different speeds that are meant for different lighting and situations and are loaded into your camera, used until the end of the roll and then sent for developing.
What Are the Different Types of Photography?
Photography is more than just a fabric of the average family's memories, it has become an art form taking on many different types. Some types of photography are artistic photography, photojournalism, documentary photography, portrait photography, event photography, family photography, nature photography, advertising photography, underwater photography, satellite photography and more. Each of these types has many different directions in which they can go.
Photography is a common hobby or pastime for many people. It is a career for many other people. There are so many different venues of it. One of the most recent revelations in photography is the digital camera and digital photo. In an age of computers and computer technology, digital photos have become increasingly popular. People no longer have to deal with film and developing because digital photos can be downloaded onto a computer and viewed instantly.
Photography has come a long way since its early days but its popularity has not waned. It will likely be with us for thousands of years to come.

We probably can’t hang onto the past definition of “long lasting” any more and have to adjust and manage our expectations that the appliances will have a shorter life expectancy. Sad but it is the way it is… unless some company becomes a game changer.

❰❰ Quote:Hi expat hive mind,
I’m trying to get back into Singapore on a VTL (flight already booked) to see my wife for Christmas but can’t get a Vaccinated Travel Pass. I left Singapore (and my job there) to visit family in the UK and forgot to do the Notarise process for my vaccination record before my EP was cancelled.
I now can’t access Notarise, so can’t generate the QR codes I need to get back in. And my vaccination records are linked to my FIN number not my passport number so the VTP application system can’t find them.
Has anyone else had or heard of a similar case? I’ve submitted a query on every support portal I can find for MOH, Notarise, Singpass and ICA without success. THe best they can tell me is that they are aware of the problem and they might have a fix by next year.
So even if no one can help me, let this tale be a warning :/❱❱
Yes they are very unhelpful and it really stupid as they hounded us to get the vaccine and then they .....
