Food Photography. Visual Perception. Selling Images. Conscientious Photography Magazine. I frequently run into being asked by photographers how they can become better at writing about their own work.
This is not an easy topic to talk about, certainly not without using specific examples. But I thought I’d do so anyway, in the hope that those who are interested in it might get something out of it. Before going into any of the details, I will have to make a disclaimer: I wrote a piece about statements before. The following, just like this previous article, inevitably is based at least to some extent on my own personal preferences as someone who reads a lot, who write a lot (mostly about photography), who looks at a lot of photography, and who teaches in a graduate photography program. Whether there is a perfect recipe for how to approach writing about one’s own photography is not clear. I will also have to make an assumption: I’m assuming that you, the photographer, want to be understood.
How do you write about your photographs? What to do, though?

Then someone pointed out that I’d made an error. I mean, I may have misspoken. Wait, I mean I was less correct than I might have been. I listed the invention of the camera first (that part is pretty hard to argue with) but realized later that optical glass (which I said was second) probably should have been third. So, since I had to make a correction . . . It seemed like it would be a good idea to expand the list of the most important developments in still photography that I started in my last article. So, ladies and gentleman: without further ado, here for your argumentative pleasure, in order, are the most important technical developments in still photography as we practice the craft today. 1.
Without the camera, nothing else really matters, so this has to go first. 2. Without good negatives and prints, photography only mattered to a few people.
Lens and mounting of a large-format camera Photography is the science, art and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film. Photography is employed in many fields of science, manufacturing (e.g. photolithography) and business, as well as its more direct uses for art, recreational purposes, and mass communication.
Etymology The word "photography" was created from the Greek roots φωτός (phōtos), genitive of φῶς (phōs), "light" and γραφή (graphé) "representation by means of lines" or "drawing", together meaning "drawing with light". Several people may have coined the same new term from these roots independently. History Precursor technologies A camera obscura used for drawing images Photography is the result of combining several technical discoveries.
