Photography is something that has gone one with us. All of love photography, because it helps is capture the moment and store it forever. Photography has been there for quite a long time, and they exist in the same level of excitement even today. That is what makes us think how much has photography evolved in the past 50 years. So here we are going to make a comparison and here is the evolution.
From Science to Art
Photography was science when it was invented. There were big machine-like things that were used to click pictures, and people thought that it required special engineering to operate the machine and it involved a lot of science. However, today with the help of technology we have shrunk things, and now photography has become convenient, and that is how we got that transferred into an art.
From long rod stands to selfies:
Remember the days where we had to use long stands and big boxes just to go for a single click. This means that there were a lot of things to do before clicking one picture just to make sure that it comes out right. But today things are entirely different. All we need is a pout or a silly pose, and you are all set to click a picture. No more big boxes.
This is also one reason why we called it science. The process of developing the photograph onto a photo sheet had great science involved in it. The process of developing a photograph is separate science, and now things have changed completely with the coming of science, and we are now into the digital era. Once digital cameras came into existence, this method was kicked off, and now we are getting instant photo prints.
From hours to seconds:
The process of taking photographs was a matter of hours, and now they have gone into seconds, and we have good reasons to help you understand why. We have already seen enough to understand why photography was a process that took hours. Also, the need that we have to get them converted into a physical copy was because we didn’t have a digital means to store. But now not only has the technology gone up to help us take quick pictures, but has also helped us save them digitally. That is why we do not develop photo anymore. From flipping the album, we have gone into swiping the screen.
From memory to phobia:
Clicking the picture in the earlier days was a memory that you are looking forward to treasure for years. Also, people didn’t do it often. They would rarely click pictures and that too they had to go to the studios. After that with digital cameras, people started taking their own pictures and then photography became a habit. But now clicking pictures have gone as often as breathing.
