Photography is the process of making pictures by means of the reflection of light acting on a material sensitive to light. The word photography comes from the Greek words meaning to write or to draw with light.

Like great paintings, fine art photography has the same lasting value as works of art. Through the photographer's artistic skill and imagination, fine art photography can be profoundly moving, exceptionally beautiful, and express powerful ideas.

The first crude type of camera was developed by about 1500, however, the first true photograph wasn't made until 1826. Modern photography has progressed beyond the chemical baths and darkrooms used for over a hundred years. Digital cameras are often used for professional art photographs and processing is now done on the computer.

The lines in a photograph can be used to direct the viewer's eye to a point of interest. Emotion or mood is also affected by the strength of line in a photograph. Vertical lines can convey feelings of grandeur. Strong horizontal lines are used to convey a sense of quite and restfulness. A diagonal line, or off-center arrangement suggests energy and movement.
