Photography is the art of using a camera to capture images of the real world. In 1825, Joseph Nicéphore Niépce took the first permanent photograph in Paris, France using a camera made by Charles and Vincent Chevalier. Today, thousands of people take photos of the world around them, from professional photographers to hobbyists to even those with no interest in photography at all (How many times have you seen someone take a picture of their meal?). While in the early days one would need a big expensive camera to take pictures, a beginner can start by just using their phone.
