Photographs may be positive or negative, opaque or transparent.

The concept may include photographs made by digital means.
  • portraits - Representations of real individuals that are intended to capture a known or supposed likeness, usually including the face of the person. For representations intended to be anonymous, or of fictional or mythological characters, see "figures (representations)."
