The invention of the camera not only brought about an art form, but also gave birth to a way of recording history – picture history. Since Daguerre invented the silver camera, people have been lucky to witness the important historical events and moving moments that are fixed in the photos.
The invention of the camera is not only the beginning of recording complete images, but also the beginning of photography. Previous technology can not achieve a complete representation of the characteristics of things, no matter how extraordinary the painter can not accurately express the image of things. So cameras make human life more real. The word “photography” comes from Greek, which means “painting with light”. Now it refers to taking pictures with photographic equipment.
