Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about photography. Joseph Nicephore Niepce created the first photograph using a camera obscura in 1827, inventing photography as we know it today. His heliographs, or sun prints, which used light to create the image, served as the model for the contemporary photograph.
Since then, photographic methods and tools have advanced from exploding flashguns to box cameras to sophisticated computerized reflex cameras, from still images to motion pictures, from black-and-white to full glorious color, and from casual hobbyists to well-compensated professionals. Nowadays, photography plays a crucial part in practically all aspects of human activity.
Among all of its functions, photography as a hobby is arguably the most common. Films and cameras are increasingly accessible and affordable. The hit-or-miss methods of the past are mostly no longer used thanks to “Instamatic” cameras. Utilizing a camera phone has simplified and made life more enjoyable. It is one of the greatest modern-era approaches to date and has a wide range of applications.
Anyone with hands and eyes can snap a moderately beautiful photo. Amateur photographers are commonplace, especially in vacation spots and recreational settings. Tourists and sightseers almost always have cameras with them. Photographs serve as capture of significant occasions, great moments and locations, or memories, to be more specific. They are what connect us to the past. Thank you.
