The Art of Photography

Original photography by Rehan Kumar

Photography is the art of capturing light to create an image. It’s a form of visual art, which includes art forms that are mostly composed of visual images. It may not seem like it, but photography adds a lot of value to our lives. Photography gives us the ability to record special events, people and places and helps us make memories.


Photography is a hobby that provides individuals with many possibilities for creative expression, which is being able to use our minds and our imagination to create something that portrays ourselves.
