Did the invention of the camera change the arts? Why or why not? Is there a relationship between movements such as realism and impressionism and the camera? Responses Response Author Date/Time Photography and Art Salvador Cruz 8/2/2015 9:31:48 AM I feel like the invention of the camera did change a lot in history. With out it we wouldn't see images from around the world in real time rather then just painting the whole thing. Cameras are quick to take images rather then painting it so people can see. RE: Photography and Art Shalom Suniula 8/5/2015 2:29:46 PM I totally agree, camera's wee designed to capture or highlight moments and images they value and believe in, giving them the power to document the world as they see fit. At the same time that the camera enforces social norms, it also documents cases in which those norms may be broken. When used as a spy device, a camera has far more power than just as a tool of observation. RE: Photography and Art Christine Collins 8/5/2015 11:04:03 PM I also agree. The camera is to capture a specific moment. It is a special meaning to catch a moment that before the camera was invented only a painting could do. It is hard to paint a portrait or a still painting. The invention of the camera made it so you didn't have to sit still for hours trying to pose to get a painting of yourself or family.

Page 2 of 12 welcome Professor Clarke-Peterson 8/2/2015 12:23:57 PM This week should prove to be quite interesting as we investigate the intersection of fine art and technology for the first time! So, in the history of Art, we go from the highly dramatic overblown images of the Baroque era, such as we have been looking at recently with Rubens, to the end of the Enlightenment era in which a greater variety in painting styles develops. With the invention of the camera coming at roughly the same time as we see Realism and Impressionism gaining popularity, can anyone discuss what the relationship between them may be? Do you think photography and painting would have been in competition, or would they have complimented one another? Explain your thoughts...
