Because my essay is based on the development of technology and asking if it did influence the art of photography, I need to know what they used then and what we use now. I also what to find out why technology that was used did improve and developed the way it did.
This website shows me that the camera development over the years ( from the 1900s) was huge. cameras had physically changed from big wooden box like devices to smaller more portable devices that could be changed and adjusted to change the image. This could mean that the photography content when the cameras had developed may have changed as well.
