A photograph (also known as a photo) is an image created by light falling on a photosensitive surface, usually photographic film or an electronic image sensor, such as a CCD or a CMOS chip. Most photographs are created using a smartphone/camera, which uses a lens to focus the scene's visible wavelengths of light into a reproduction of what the human eye would see. The process and practice of creating such images is called photography. Etymology The word photograph was coined in 1839 by Sir John Herschel and is based on the Greek (phos), meaning 'light, ' and (graph), meaning 'drawing, writing, ' together meaning 'drawing with light. 'The first permanent photograph, a contact-exposed copy of an engraving, was made in 1822 using the bitumen-based 'heliography' process developed by Nicphore Nipce. The first photographs of a real-world scene, made using a camera obscura, followed a few years later at Le Gras, France, in 1826, but Nipce's process was not sensitive enough to be practical for that application: a camera exposure lasting for hours or days was required. In 1829 Nipce entered into a partnership with Louis Daguerre and the two collaborated to work out a similar but more sensitive and otherwise improved process. After Nipce's death in 1833 Daguerre concentrated on silver halide-based alternatives. He exposed a silver-plated copper sheet to iodine vapor, creating a layer of light-sensitive silver iodide, exposed it in the camera for a few minutes, developed the resulting invisible latent image to visibility with mercury fumes, then bathed the plate in a hot salt solution to remove the remaining silver iodide, making the results light-fast. He named this first practical process for making photographs with a camera the daguerreotype, after himself. Its existence was announced to the world on 7 January 1839 but working details were not made public until 19 August.
