Learn about photography

This is a blog in which you can learn everything about photography.
My name is Flav Mogo, and I am a photographer. My professional experience is in several photographic practices most important of which are photojournalism, portrait, wedding, events, landscape.
I've learned the trade like you, by scouting the internet for information and then putting it all in practice. That's how after two years I've landed a job at a printed paper, without any formal studies. I'm doing this project because I've just finished my bachelor's degree and I have free time and I find giving something back is always rewarding.
I will explain gradually the technical details of photography taking into consideration all its aspects and variables. Also, I encourage comments to which i will answer.

Cameras: How do they work? Part One

The process of making a photograph is simple quiet simple:
A photograph is an image created by light falling on a light-sensitive surface [film or digital sensor]. The camera uses a lens to focus the scene's visible wavelengths of light into a reproduction of what the human eye would see.
-abridged and simplified version of the Wikipedia definition.
