The Physics of Photography

In today’s day and age, photography is becoming an increasingly important aspect of society, especially among the younger generations. Modern cameras allow for a quick, easy, and relatively inexpensive way to take high-definition photographs in a variety of settings. This paper will explore the physics operating at the core of modern photography. Along these lines, it will discuss the two major structural elements of cameras: the lens and image capture systems, including both film and digital methods. It will also examine optimization processes for different lens systems and how to manipulate these systems with regard to photography as an art form.
