Welcome to TechRadar’s Photography Week 2021

Welcome to TechRadar’s Photography Week 2021. It’s World Photography Day on August 19, but rather than spending just a day celebrating one of the best hobbies on the planet, we thought it deserved a whole week of attention. So join us every day this week for a rapid-fire burst of features and tutorials on everything photographic – whether you’re using a smartphone or DSLR.

Photography has changed a fair bit since the first popular form of making photos, the ‘Daguerrotype process’, arrived back in 1839. Back then, every single exposure took about fifteen minutes. These days, over 1,000 photos are uploaded to Instagram every second.
