Photography is one of the most impactful discoveries in history. Itmeant that instead of relying on only written word a society andits people could not record their history th…rough visual evidenceto back up the written word.
You can take your own pictures or there are cards you can get and the Disney people take pictures of you and then you can go online with the card and see and/or purchase your …Disney pictures. It's really easy to do!! Your Welcome!!!!!
It served to take away the romance of battle and show the grim realities of war. It was the first time people, other than eyewitnesses, saw the death and destruction.
Photography was the perfect solution to art in the time of the enlightenment; scientific, reasonablewithout unnecessary flourishes. However the invention of photography change…d the value of art - it could no longer be stated that art made after the invention of photography was only valuable as a snapshot of that time period; for that was the job of the camera. In a sense art was given a higher value as it portrayed a personal perception connected with historical events and philosophy.
no clue don't care either . You are dumb.
It had far reaching consequences. Pictures of the aftermath of battles could be sent all over the world. Pictures of loved ones could be carried into battle, or sent back to… the family. It was the first war that was recorded visually.
Photography has greatly impacting media and news and how it is viewed throughout the world. It has also changed how much of history is recorded.
Yes it is because if we didn't have pictures we would basically still be telling stories by mouth.
If you are wondering how you can see the world through photographs: There are many photographers world wide. A lot of them have their own websites showcasing their work, or c…an be found on community sites like Flickr.com or Deviantart.com. If you want to experience the world through photography, just do a search for what you are looking for. Every photographer is different and has a different subject matter to shoot depending on their lifestyle and location. If you are wondering how I see the world through photography personally: I see the world as a big studio that people live in. Every thing inside is a medium or color and the camera brings it all together to make a work of art. Photography helps us to document happy or terrible events, and to share them with new generations and/or with people around the world. It is a beautiful form of expression that anyone can use.

check the world out and tell me a day when you do NOT see a photograph? Nuff said...
They made the camera an artist's tool by creating true-to-life paintings based on photographs.

The relationship of science/technology and art is woefullyunderemphasized in popular understanding. From Da Vinci's interestin pre-natal anatomy to Van Gogh's study of astrono…my, to thepost-structuralist roots of John Baldessari, scientific curiosityand technological advancement have sent the volleyball over the netuncountable times. Before the drum machine, drummers soughtmetronomic perfection, but when the radio was full of mechanizedsynth-pop, we began to prize the gritty slop of drums obviouslybeaten by human beings. Painted portraiture, like most painting, strove to give us the mostconvincing, detailed representation of naturalism. When the cameraappeared on the scene, the Impressionists basically said, Hey, themachine has that covered, we want to say (see) what the machinecan't. That's when bold and loose strokes of alla prima paintinglet loose. Currently, there is a split. We are both tech-fetishistsand nostalgists, craving a return to the handmade. Today'sportraits are equally likely to be pure painting, pure digitalmedium or the mixed-media offspring of both.

Which of the inventors associated with photography do you think had the largest impact on photography?
Camille and Henri Dreyfus. The Dreyfus brothers invented cellulose acetate, and to understand why it's important you need to know how camera emulsions used to be made in the …really old days. The first really usable camera emulsion was the Daguerreotype. It was developed in heated mercury. Then came the tintype which was developed in potassium cyanide, and probably a few other processes that'd kill ya quick. Worse: you can't reproduce any of these photos like you can with a negative or a digital file because they were created on metal plates. Next was the wet collodion process, which was coated on a glass plate. You had to make the emulsion, coat it onto the plate, take the picture and develop it before the collodion dried...add to that the minor problem that collodion is guncotton dissolved in ether, hence extremely flammable. Then someone figured out gelatin could be used to coat plates, and the dry plate was invented. This solved the problem of having to haul a darkroom into the field (which they had to do during the Civil War) and it greatly cut down on the number of photographers that were killed by their work, but you still had to use a big camera to hold the plates, you still had to haul around lots of weight, and you still had to reload the camera after every shot. Dry plates survived for a very long time: pro astronomers used plates because plates don't sag when you lay them flat and they don't expand and contract with temperature changes. Astrophotography has gone digital for two reasons: it's easier to work with digital files than plates, and Kodak no longer makes plates. Next came George Eastman's paper negative film. It's flexible so you can make a roll of film out of it. To use it you had to strip the emulsion off the backing film - not an easy task to do, but an extremely easy task to screw up. Then came nitrate negatives. You can make a clear film by dissolving guncotton. This gives a usable negative you can print with an enlarger, but also one that is extremely flammable. And finally came cellulose acetate. It's transparent. It's flexible. And it's not flammable. Photography became truly popular only when it was safe and easy, which Kodak Safety Film enabled.
