    If it is created with a camera is it "Photography"

    I was looking at the work of J Beever and was curious how he made the drawings.

    Without knowing how he did it, I figured he used a projector at night and drew from that, but he states that he uses a camera on a tripod to mark out these drawings as they are created.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Maybe he's using a camera obscura (??) to make traces.

    It is a contemporary use of anamorphic perspective drawing similar to Hans Holbein the Younger's The Ambassadors.

    Go to Michaels Craft store on line and check out the Photo to wall projector and you will then see.

    Great video! Loved to see this.

    From the video, it just seems he uses the camera to do quick checks from a fixed point, so as to have the perspective completely right from a single point.

    For the rest, I just think he has great skills and experience and a great feeling for perspective. Yes, some people do use projectors to make drawings, but like this guy, there are others who can do without.

    In this very short video of the Italian artist Luciano Ventrone, who makes photo realistic oil painting, you can at the end in a very short shot, see him tracing from a projection on his canvas, based on pictures of still lifes he made before. The last sentence he speaks reads: The picture is the starting point, to go elsewhere...

    This drawing is by myself and I made it just sitting in front of the scene with nothing but a pencil and paper:

    Is tracing a photo (with pencil on paper) photography?

    Here is one of my fellow faculty member's work using this technique in the classical sense.

    I actually think that Vermeer's work with a camera obscura is one of the earliest forms of photography. If the scene has been put through a lens, and thus has lensing effects... an apertured perspective, in/out-of-focus elements or overall pinhole diffraction softening etc., then it is a photograph.

    So, yes, I do think this is a form of photography. But it's not worth debating, really- I can imagine plenty of valid arguments contrary to mine.
