Paintings have been considered to be an important medium of expression and have even contained hidden messages that fueled revolutions. And early 19th century, the conception of capturing light and projecting it onto a frame was conceived and ever since then, the technology has been on an exponential rise.
Now we are at a point where every handheld device comes with some form of a light capture device, camera. This increase in complexity has allowed a decrease in size and decrease in cost of ownership to be possible. However, the tradeoff is that what required extreme discipline and efforts to be learned in the last decade is now thought to have been mastered by everyone!
