Photography is the process, activity and art of creating still pictures by recording radiation on a radiation-sensitive medium, such as a photographic film, or electronic image sensors. Photography uses foremost radiation in the UV, visible and near-IR spectrum. For common purposes the term light is used instead of radiation. Light reflected or emitted from objects form a real image on a light sensitive area (film or plate) or a FPA pixel array sensor by means of a pin hole or lens in a device known as a camera during a timed exposure. The result on film or plate is a latent image, subsequently developed into a visual image (negative or diapositive). An image on paper base is known as a print. The result on the FPA pixel array sensor is an electrical charge at each pixel which is electronically processed and stored in a computer (raster)-image file for subsequent display or processing. Photography has many uses for business, science, manufacturing (f.i. Photolithography), art, and recreational purposes.
David Gysel ist längst innerhalb der deutsch-chilenischen Gemeinschaft und darüber hinaus als exzellenter Fotograf bekannt. Auch in diesem Jahr machte er sich auf und durchreiste die verschiedenen Landschaften Chiles. Mit dabei im Gepäck: natürlich die Kamera. So entstanden wunderbare Fotos, die David Gysel freundlicherweise dem Cóndor an dieser Stelle zur Verfügung stellte. Mehr Informationen gibt es auf seiner Internetseite www.davidgysel.com
