There are so many ways to capture the beautiful images of life. The two most famous ones, though, are painting and photography. Now some people today prefer photography and others prefer painting, there are many reasons for their choices. Some people like painting better than photography because they love the fact that they could feel the texture of the painting. Where as on the other hand, some people like photography better than painting because they love the clarity of the picture and they love how they can see every detail.

Yes, photography is similar to painting in many ways, but it is also very different. Digital photography is different from painting because unlike painting photography requires a camera. Also if a person messed up a shot in photography they can erase it and take it again, which is something that another person can not do when painting. Another thing that one can not do with a painting is alter it to be however one wants it on their computer. Photography was not introduced to the world until 1827 by Joseph Nicephore Niepce. When doing photography it is a requirement that the person have a memory card so that the pictures they take can be taken from their camera and uploaded to that person’s computer. When participating in photography, people have to make sure that the lighting is good and that the picture is focused so that it does not come out too dark or too blurry. Another difference that separates photography from painting is that a photograph is usually captured within seconds.

The used the paintings to tell about legends and about the events that had happened during their day. Painting requires many tools, such as paint brushes, easels, water, wax paper, pallet, paper towels, and a scene to focus on.
