This is a normal post "Who needs a camera?"
I'm guessing the artists who are copying photos do?

This is a normal post True. You don't get models to sit for long enough to do such work.

This is a normal post True, had one model once who's nipples had a mind of their own.
Go from little pea sized things to something that would have your eye out.

This is a normal post When I was at college the students posed.
It was a good way to see each other naked without buying them several pints of snakebite and black first.

This is a normal post Artists who have done it have a better experience with a model. Those that don't want impossible poses held for impossibly long periods.

This is a normal post The reflection is pretty cool; I suppose it is taking the Warhol soup can to the next level.

This is a normal post the Warhol stuff had a more obvious transformative quality along with the celebration of consumerism
although maybe this does too (the text says they are quite large) and it's clearer when you see the canvas rather than a smallish jpeg

This is a normal post Are you trying to make me feel bad because I have a small jpeg?

This is a normal post not as such. Warhol churned them out, it was less about the image, more that he was making it.
Pop-art subjects will continue to have a relevance to fine art, but less of an impact. This is kind of hyperrealism, (though probably just photorealism) I believe which is more focused on taking subject matter from a photograph, sometimes dealing with it in a photorealistic manner, sometimes focusing on one singular element and sometimes being so detailed so that if the photo's shit then so will be the image.

More or less.
