Photographic Images

A photograph (often shortened to photo) is a single image created using a record of light falling on a light-sensitive surface, usually photographic film or a CCD. Most photographs are created using a camera, which uses a lens to focus the scene's visible wavelengths of light into a faithful reproduction of what the human eye would see. The process of creating photographs is called photography.

Motion pictures, such as film or video, are not generally considered to be sequences of photographs.
