The origin of the word photography comes from two Greek words, phōtos and graphé which together interpret to ‘drawing with light.’ Which is a beautiful way to ubridge the science of photography. “The camera captures light and this is why it is believed that moment of time can be freezed”.
Technology advancements have made photography far more accessible to everyday people, and that’s certainly a good thing. But with greater access comes greater competition among photographers for a limited number of gigs. Whereas 20 years ago a photographer might only have to compete with a small handful of other photographers for weddings and other events, today, photographers might easily have a dozen or more colleagues competing for the same job.
George Eastman and the Kodak Camera- Revolution in Photography
In 1888, George Eastman invented dry, transparent and flexible photographic film as well as the Kodak cameras that could use the new film.
Eastman was a passionate photographer and became the founder of the Eastman Kodak company. “You press the button, we do the rest” promised Eastman in 1888 with this advertising slogan for his Kodak camera.
Eastman wanted to simplify photography and make it available to everyone, not just trained photographers. So in 1883, Eastman announced the invention of photographic film in rolls. Kodak the company was born in 1888 when the first Kodak camera entered the market. Pre-loaded with enough film for 100 exposures, the Kodak camera could easily be carried and can be hold during its operation.
George Eastman was one of the first American industrialists to employ a full-time research scientist. Together with his associate, Eastman consummated the first commercial transparent roll film, which made possible Thomas Edison’s motion picture camera in 1891
