A History of Photography (Mostly)Art History Photography Month has begun and where better to start than with the History of Photography! I appreciate not everything is included, but here are some key main events and features, images and happenings that have impacted Photography across the years. If you don't want to read it all, scroll to the bottom for my tl;dr handy summary ;)
This is said to be where it all began with Alhazen inventing the first pinhole camera - known as Camera Obscura. Heard the phrase before? Now you know where it originates from! Aristotle observed and noted in around 330BC the optic laws that made pinhole cameras possible and questioned why the Sun could make a circular image when it shined through a square hole.

Famous Photographs: The Afghan GirlIf you run a google search on what are the top famous Photographs of all time, The Afghan Girl is sure to appear. She is truly a face from History and one that many across the globe have tried to capture within others time and time again. But what exactly has made this image and its photographer so captivating?
Source: Daily Mail/National Geographic/Steve McCurry
Eyes, they say, are the window to the soul. And capturing such a piercing and expressive look in a photograph is a highly sought after skill. The Afghan Girl exhibits suspense, suspicion and a sense of distrust at the person behind the lens, she gives off an air of maturity, a foreboding feeling - a vulnerability behind years of strength. That, is what makes her so captivating.

Famous Photographers: Julia Margaret CameronSource:Wikipedia 
Julia Margaret Cameron was a British Photographer born in 1815 and living until 1879. She's relatively unheard of though, despite the faces that she photographed and the developments she made in her short career (spanning just eleven years.) Unlike many modern photographers and prodigy's, Julia is quite unique in that she didn't start photographing until she was 48 years old and was given a camera as a gift. Her style was not appreciated in her time, but like many who have made an impact on society, she became more famous and recognized long after her death.

I was lucky enough last Summer, to be able to visit Julia's former home - Dimbola Lodge - on the Isle of Wight, England. It was here that I discovered the photographer and was both warmed and proud to find that a woman had made History with her
How photography helped end a warIt's said that a picture says a thousand words, but this isn't always true. Sometimes they say far more than that. Un-edited photography is the closest medium we have to capturing reality, and for that reason it's incredibly powerful. On a personal level, photographs help us capture memories of our loved ones, and of times gone by. On a larger scale, pictures can tell stories of hardship, suffering and hope in a language that transcends culture. Photography can evoke emotion - but more than that, it can move people to action.
The power of photography was maybe never clearer than during the Vietnam war (1955 - 1975).
There are three pictures in particular that became iconic. They showed the human side of war, and the inhumane side of it. They showed the true horror that people endure and what kind of brutalities it makes people commit to other human beings. As the war dragged on, there was a growing movement of people who opposed the war. These pictures served as a powerful catalyst, an

Interview with Nilanja
How did you first get into photography?
I have been around deviantArt for quite some time but mainly drew, except a few (really bad) self portraits. Then I found some really great photos and wanted to take some myself - of course I couldn't with a point-and-shoot-camera but I still tried. I wanted a reflex camera so bad but I waited a few months until I was sure that I would take photography serious because such a camera isn't the cheapest thing. At christmas 2011 I finally got one! And so I started shooting...

Please tell us about the photography equipment that you use
for most shoots.

Famous Photographs: Lunch Atop A SkyscraperWhilst the most famous photographs from across the years often feature famine, death, destruction and war, it's sometimes refreshing to catch a glimpse of one or two that don't exhibit depression, demise and conflict. Photo-journalism can work both ways to brief the viewer of an image on what it's like to step into somebody else's shoes. It can shock, bring a tear or even, by some miracle - a smile.
Lunch Atop A SkyScraper does exactly that. It provokes a smile, it features across the world in postcards, books, greeting cards and other formats and ultimately it tugs at that part of your heart that knows there can be good in the world. So what makes it famous?

Famous Photographers: Dorothy Bohm"A World Observed..."
Dorothy Bohm was born in Konigsberg, East Prussia and has lived in England since 1939. She was recently elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and is considered one of the most respected women of British Photography. I stumbled across her work accidentally, as is often the case when you discover something great. I was astounded to find that the book I had discovered was the first major retrospective exhibition of her work - in book format. Her career began in the 1940s with  A World Observed becoming the title of her soon to be famous collection of photographs.

canismaioris says: "The most important in Architectural Photography for me is:1. Finding the right perspective. You should always look for an interesting foreground, first plan can totally change perception. 
2. It's good to use wide angle, show as much as you can, use a wide angle lens or make panorama, but this trick doesn't work in every case and situation. 
Food Photography - back to basicsFood is a necessity for daily life and good health (the right kinds anyway), but food is also fast becoming something of an Art as well as many turn to their cameras once a mammoth baking session is over and capture the delightful dishes in attractive and alluring ways. Since the beginnings of Still Life Photography, food has been a subject and whilst the topic has remained the same - methods, equipment and ease have changed in varying degrees across the years. Food Photography is still a genre that is vastly overlooked and majorly underrated in the art world.
It all began with Still Life Paintings back in the 17th Century. They were as far from commercial as a style could get and certainly weren't created with selling in mind. However the skill and main aspects that realism painters took back in the 17th Century are kept close to the hearts of Food Photographers today as they grip onto Realism, effects of light, composition and arrangement. Props have always been an important part of
Famous Photographers: Clyde Butcher+The EvergladesClyde Butcher is fondly, by locals, referred to as the Grizzly Adams of the Everglades. Butcher takes images of the Florida Everglades that he calls home, and blows them up to enormous proportions to create fascinating and in-depth wall art.

But his history, and the inspiration behind his Photography is perhaps what makes him such an interesting person. His story is modern, his son died during a collision with a drunk driver and it was this carelessness and disregard for human life that is said to have driven him to the Florida Everglades, seeking solitude and a different kind of peace.

Butcher began his career in Photography using colour. Yet it's said that his transition into Black and White Photography is attributed to the death of his son. He entered a world devoid of colour, and it was perhaps fitt

"No photographer is as good as the simplest camera."
~Edward Steichen

Since getting my first D-SLR, three years ago now, I have never been completely comfortable with the methods I use to transport it. With the camera came a bag, typical camera bag, over the shoulder type. But it's still not quite right. There are a wide range of camera bags out there now. Including one from deviantART - the dA Pro Camera Bag, but nothing has ever been quite what I need. The three common types of carrying a camera bag seem to be across the body, two straps on the back or even a belt. What do you use?

Megalithicmatt's Gallery
> Please introduce yourself, in your own words. What are your interests?
Hi, my name’s Matthew Davidson - I go by the moniker Megalithicmatt because I like visiting ancient sites such as stone circles and standing stones. I’m a geochemist, not an artist or designer by trade, so my photographs are taken purely as a hobby, though I have considered becoming a working photographer in the past. Aside from history and archaeology, I enjoy hiking, rock climbing and anything that gets me out into the countryside.

Still Life PhotographyStill Life Photography is much like Still Life art in general, in the sense that the photograph (instead of a canvas) depicts inanimate objects and subject matters overall. Often, objects are grouped together for this portrayal, which the photographer exploits to really create a fantastic composition. Photography allows the artist more of a chance to arrange the objects for capture easily.
However, Still Life Photography isn't as easy as it sounds. One must think about the lighting, composition, and other matters to really make the photograph attractive and engaging. This is similar to Still Life art, in which Still Life Photography is founded upon.
You could say that Still Life Photography is influenced from the romanticism of traditional painting techniques. Still Life isn't simply the arrangement of objects, it is the presentation and illustration of the natural world, something more than a simple record. Photographs represent more than just what is there, they represent ourselves t

Interview with lieveheersbeestje
How did you first get into photography?
I always enjoyed taking pictures, a few years ago I started to get more serious about photography. I saved up for my first SLR camera at the age of 19. That is when it started, I never stopped taking pictures and learned a lot in 3 years. And I really enjoyed the progress.

Please tell us about the photography equipment that you use

Canon Eos 500D is the camera I always use.
Sigma 105mm F/2.8 is a macro lens I used for roses often, it's quite sharp but gives a certain softness.

Jerry Uelsman and Why Surrealism is ArtJerry Uelsman established his unique and famous Photography style in the 1940s by using multiple photos to create a surrealistic and impressionist composite image. He's what we'd call 'old school' and is a modern day photographer with old style equipment. Even though he lives in an era when digital Photography is widely available, he chooses simply to stick with his film cameras and is famously quoted as saying...
"I am sympathetic to the current digital revolution and excited by the visual options created by the computer. However I feel my creative process remains intrinsically linked to the alchemy of the darkroom."
Uelsman exhibits up to this present day with his work being showcased across much of the USA. His exhibition is famously titled, Faking it: Manipulated Photography before Photoshop and serves as a poke that perhaps we can learn a thing or two from this great man.

Famous Photographers: Yann Arthus-BertrandIf the Earth had formed a year ago, Life would have appeared - on February 26th, Dinosaurs would have arrived on December 10th to vanish just 16 days later and Homo Sapiens would have showed up very late on December 31st. A few minutes later, in less than one minute, Man would have drastically altered the fragile balance between land, seas and atmosphere. Humanity is on the march, earth itself is left behind."
~ David Ehrenfeld, 1978
Source: Earth from the Air
Yann Arthus-Bertrand undertook probably one of the most fascinating collections of Photography that I've ever come across. He first started shooting from the air whilst in a hot air balloon. In more recent years, he has been able to use a helicopter. Whatever his methods have been, he has never ceased to snap creative, inspiring and other-worldly type images.
Photography Troubleshooting: LandscapesI first started out with landscape Photography and it's something that I particularly enjoy now whether that's rolling hills, rolling clouds, or a bit of both on a stormy day. Photographing landscapes can not only highlight the natural terrain of the earth, but also what's going on in the sky and the weather effects of the day. o-kaykay asked for some Landscape pointers - so here are some handy tips on how to achieve great landscape shots:
1) Use a Tripod
There are times when you just won't have the time. But equally if you've got a fantastic scene in front of you and you have a moment or two to set things up, then please do. You'll honestly be more pleased with your results. Where you may have a landscape that involves a bit of water, you might need a longer shutter speed. The tripod will help stabilise you. Consider also using a shutter release to help you as well. For a bit more information on tripods and when and where to use them

History of Wedding PhotographyThe 1840s was the beginning of wedding photography. There was little commercial photography at the time for the wedding day itself. Instead, it was all about creating memories of the wedding day. As the photographic equipment was limited (i.e bulky and heavy), wedding photography remained in the studio for more than a century. In the 1800s, the only kind of wedding photography there was was a daguerreotype portrait on a tiny copper sheet.
With limited resources, photographers used glass plates, tin sheets, and copper sheets for their photographs. One of the very first couples were Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840. Couples who were poorer did not hire a photographer to record the actual wedding, or to capture them in pose for formal wedding photos. Instead, photographers captured them before or after their wedding, out of formal wedding dress and into their best formal dress. These were always taken in a controlled environment, like a studio, and the photographer would position

Famous Photographers: What we can learnThere are things that we can learn from everybody, whether it's as they say - sitting at the feet of an elderly person - or indeed reading from a book, looking at history in photos and so on. But what, if anything, can we learn from the Famous Photographers of the past? Well, plenty.
Julie Margaret Cameron
She was a shrewd business woman, and her fame came from having the only photographs of some very famous iconic people in History. And how did she manage this? By meticulously keeping details and registering her copyright with every single Photograph she took. We can learn a lot from her actions, particularly in an age where anything can be replicated, if you have the right tools. Equally, we can also learn the value of the equipment we have around us, and how easy it is now to capture a photograph and share it with the world. Julie's time in Sri Lanka served as a testimony that without pure water and chemicals, she couldn't continue with her craft and a

Photography vs. paintingThe late 18th and early 19th century was a time of rapid social change, maybe more so than ever before in a timespan of a mere hundred or so years. Coming on the heels of the First Industrial Revolution followed the Second Industrial Revolution, which gave us the assembly line, the rise and fall of many markets, high unemployment rates, and the birth of the middle class. Advances in medicine lead to a higher life expectancy and lower child mortality rates, and Sigmund Freud shone a bright spotlight on the human mind, essentially marking the beginning of psychology as a serious science. Technology was rapidly changing and evolving, and with it so did social values.
It is this time period that sees the birth of abstract art. It started off with the paintings of Manet, whose technique involved painting in patches of color, rather than the layered technique that was common and accepted for the time. Monet (similar name, different guy) focused on the color and the way light plays with the s
