A photographic type used broadly today is science photography. Without the existence of science photography education won’t be able to proceed and no record of any science would be available. Science photography can be used as a tool to assist visualization of scientific matters.
Scientific photographers work for governments or research institutions because this photographic type relies on recording and measuring the fields of science, technology and medicine. Science photography can be seen as many different parts of nature that are explored and captured by photographers in order to educate following generations on what is real and why it is seen as true, it captures beyond the limits of the human eye.
Science photography covers many fields and makes life easier for many people. The police enforcements use photography for forensic reasons on crime scenes; this makes it easier to keep record of evidence.
Finer detail on organisms can be captured and scientists can make conclusions on how organisms live and what they do. Many of these photographs are used for education in schools to explain how things work and what the purpose of it is.
Astronomy became easier accessible to people because of satellites that are now able to take photographs on certain objects in space. Earlier we did not know what space looks like and what is in space and with the invention of photography education on astronomy became easy and a lot more interesting.
Last but not least, science photography is used in the medical industry for many purposes. We make use of x rays to see deeper into the human body. Molecules are captured and looked at to find the reason for certain diseases and also the development and discoveries on new medication are all thanks to science photography that makes it easier to explore and to experiment.
