  2. 2. Introduction Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] In this modern day of technology, there are so many different types of cameras and film to photograph with. With the dawn of the digital age, the art of photography is stepping out the back door. Everyone with a digital camera now thinks that they can take a snapshot of a flower, Photoshop it, and call it art. You, however think differently (or at least you did before the amnesia!). You are a camera with amnesia trying to find your identity. What are you? When were you invented? By whom? What is significant about you? Are you still around today (if you’re not, make an argument why you should be)? Your goal as a groups is to determine how the camera has changed from its original invention. What modifications and adaptations have been made to it? What role has technology played?
