Discussion Topic 7: Here a Photo, There a Photo, Everywhere a Photo!

Make forum posts: 1

Photography changed and challenged the notion that art is a precious object – we can reproduce photographs by the thousands and millions. We began to regard art as something that is commonplace rather than a unique work. Further investigations into photographic technologies, such as attempts to reproduce illusions of movement, led to new photo-based media such as film and video.

Visual information has been key to making social networking so popular. From digital cameras to mobile phones, taking pictures has become an everyday experience for most of us.

  • How often do you take pictures?
  • What device do you usually use to take them?
  • How much attention do you devote to composition, lighting, or arrangement in your pictures?
  • How do you use the images?
  • How do you think you can improve your photos?
