Theodoros;

"Photo" means "light" and "graph" means "drawing" or "writing" (these are from ancient Greek roots). Thus "photography" is the process of writing or drawing with light. In a film SLR, this happens as the mirror lifts and allows photons to interact with the emulsion on the film. In a DSLR, this happens as the mirror lifts and allows photons to reach the sensor, the photons are counted and mapped, and the result is saved (written) as a RAW file. The RAW file is thus the photograph. The print is not the photograph; it is a print (third generation copy from a .tif or .jpg file) of the photograph. In common usage the print is called a photograph; but so is the image displayed on a monitor.

I attended university for language and the use of words.

And I must say that I am getting a bit sick of your unfriendly and rude responses to people, and your patent unwillingness to open your mind to any viewpoint that differs from your own.
