I'd love to turn this group into super group so I can put up polls for votings on "Picture of the Week". So if you want to donate some points you can do this here:
Thank you in advance!

|Hello and a very warm welcome to ImagoPhotographica, the world of photography. |
This group is dedicated to all photographers out there to collect and share this wonderful genre of art.
Are you a lover of cameras and photos? Then don't hesitate to join this group! We'd love to have you here.
On 1834, in Campinas, Brazil, Hercules Florence, a French painter and inventor, wrote in his diary the word "photographie" to describe his process. As far as can be ascertained, it was Sir John Herschel in a lecture before the Royal Society of London, on March 14, 1839 who made the word "photography" known to the world. But in an article published on February 25 of the same year in a German newspaper called the Vossische Zeitung, Johann von Maedler, a Berlin astronomer, had used the word photography already.
The word photography derives from the Greek φωτός (phōtos), genitive of φῶς (phōs), "light" and γραφή (graphé) "representation by means of lines" or "drawing", together meaning "drawing with light".
Photography is the art, science and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film, or electronically by means of an image sensor. Typically, a lens is used to focus the light reflected or emitted from objects into a real image on the light-sensitive surface inside a camera during a timed exposure. The result in an electronic image sensor is an electrical charge at each pixel, which is electronically processed and stored in a digital image file for subsequent display or processing.
The result in a photographic emulsion is an invisible latent image, which is later chemically developed into a visible image, either negative or positive depending on the purpose of the photographic material and the method of processing. A negative image on film is traditionally used to photographically create a positive image on a paper base, known as a print, either by using an enlarger or by contact printing.whie transparency's or slides are produced by producing an image on a transparent base either from a negative or by chemical reversal or electronically.
Photography has many uses for business, science, manufacturing (e.g. photolithography), art,recreational purposes,and mass communication.
