Cinematography
CINEMATOGRAPHY is the science or art of motion-picture photography by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation , either electronically by means of an image sensor , or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as film stock . Typically, a lens is used to repeatedly focus the light reflected from objects into real images on the light-sensitive surface inside a camera during a questioned exposure , creating multiple images. With an electronic image sensor, this produces an electrical charge at each pixel , which is electronically processed and stored in a video file for subsequent display or processing. The result with photographic emulsion is a series of invisible latent images on the film stock, which are later chemically "developed " into a visible image . The images on the film stock are played back at a rapid speed and projected onto a screen, creating the illusion of motion
