Photography and Art Judy Hernandez 8/4/2015 8:14:38 PM Prof. Fawn and Class, Based on our text it was surprising to me how the camera came about, let alone the first pictures to be of dead soldiers from war. Did the invention of the camera change the arts? Why or why not? Yes it did, it brought "Realism's Pencil to Light", with the invention of having light and chemicals take a picture of something now the arts could preserve real life in a picture in an instant instead of months of painting life. Providing what everyone sees instead of a painting based on the artist view of what they see. Is there a relationship between movements such as realism and impressionism and the camera? All three of these movements provide art of what is there (what is real, what is impressed and what is captured by camera). Instead of imagination, fantasy, and abstract of what would be there.

Professor Clarke-Peterson 8/4/2015 9:42:20 PM While a painting can never be a 'perfect' reproduction like a photographic image, do you think there are things that can be captured in a painting that are absent in a photograph? Does anyone else have thoughts on this? RE: what is perfect? Sara Wright 8/4/2015 11:02:21 PM The biggest difference between paintings and photographs is that painters can interpret what they are seeing. With a photograph, the photographer is capturing a moment in life. With a painting, the painter can weave their own version of how they think it looks. RE: what is perfect? Professor Clarke-Peterson 8/4/2015 11:09:23 PM Is there more to our experience of the world than what can be seen physically? RE: what is perfect? Preston Griffall 8/6/2015 1:08:26 PM I absolutely believe that there's more to experience in the world than can be seen through a photograph or even a painting. If you received the same experience then you could just look on the internet or a book and get the same feeling as traveling and say that you have "seen" the world. When you go to a new place or are introduced to a new culture, there's an energy, a feeling that can't be described, something that only you will know and be able to think of but will be impossible to describe. Often when I go to new places I don't take pictures because I want to absorb everything that I can and remember the experience as only I can in my head. To explore the world is to expand ones mind and ability to think. RE: what is perfect? Leslie Reed 8/6/2015 1:44:05 PM There are enhancements that try to make the photographs better and better. They started off with black and white photos and moved to color and digital. I think that a painter is a able to add more of
