Photography is the fact of capturing an amount of light during a given moment on a light sensitive material. ..whether it's a film or a digital sensor. ..
Digital photography is a form of photography that uses an array of light sensitive sensors to capture the image focused by the lens, as opposed to an exposure on light sensitive film. The captured image is then stored as a digital file ready for digital processing (colour correction, sizing, croppin…g, etc.) Now the important thing is will digital make you a better photographer ? and should you go digital ?

What is your subject? What is your intent? In this day and age, digital is almost always better. It allows superior manipulation post-capture and much greater flexibility. There still are those seeking the rustic film-look that is hard to match with digital photos. On the sidenote: There are phot…ographers and retouchers who transfer digital images onto film, then develop the film. So you can have a photographer shooting digital, but if you want the film look, you just need to find the correct technician and they'll do it in post. There's a few people in the US who do it. Very small market though. (MORE)
it started back in the 1800 when color image came out lots of people wanted to do and that is how it came out and now today people use camers for fun
The camera figures out that you've rotated it 90 degrees to take a vertical shot (portrait orientation). When you review the image, it remains vertical on the viewing screen even though you are now holding the camera in it's usual position (landscape orientation), with the view screen horizontal onc…e again.

I believe the answer is yes - once sensors can match or beat film in terms of depth (the range of intensity they can record) and the amount of noise produced. It may occur gradually as die-hard film users retire. But it will happen in my opinion. The question isn't If! It already has. I mean, …you don't see many people- other thna those that are just studying Photography- still using Film SLR's. I've used Film SLR's in the Past, and have completely left it in the dust. From around a year ago, I've been Using Digital SLR's, more convenient, equal image quality, and you aren't limited ( to much ) Who'd rather change rolls of film, when you can shoot 5 Frames per second, and not stop. Digital Photography has already taken over- I can't say film is dead, but suffering from a terminal disease. Manufactures, like Canon, and Nikon, will soon stop Making Film SLR's- So you'll have to shoot Digital. Nathan An Historian and Archivist adds Although most photographers have made the switch to digital there is still a niche that will remain film based for perhaps the next generation. That niche is archival photography, which includes microfilm and preservation of important legal documents. Not that digital archives are not important, but if a legal question comes up the film record will hold up better in a court of law better than a digital because of the ease of which fraud can be commited with digital imaging. ----------------------- It definitely has already occurred. Film offers no real benefit over digital, and I think the last of the old time pros have switched. Some of them left kicking and screaming, but 99% have migrated. There are some people who "just like film." Some digital cameras now have secure one-way hash functions built into them for evidence preservation where if the picture is altered after the fact, the hash won't be correct. It's not perfectly secure, but I'm sure its designed to address the issue above. (MORE)

Actually, the camera obscura WAS used by artists to assist in painting before the advent of photography. The artists would sit in a darkened room with a pinhole in one side. The image (rendered upside down) projected on the wall was used by the painters, rather than looking at the scene itself. . S…eriously ? You've gotta be kidding! Common sense, man!

You can go into forensics (criminal photography), portraits, weddings, children, landscapes. All kinda things including marketing, business almost anything Here are some of the best things things that photography allows you to do, plus info on how to achieve it: . Photography is a career that… allows you to work for yourself . Most photographers these days are freelance, running their own businesses and picking up commissions by themselves. Typically it's only photojournalists, working for newspapers and magazines, or advertising photographers, shooting products etc for ad houses, who work on a conventional contract. . Photography is also a great career for working with people . Event photographers get to spend time helping couples plan their weddings and business people planning big events. If you are pleasant, professional and good company that's half the battle. Developing a good reputation as a photographer in your local area can be quite a fast process thanks to word of mouth. . Photography is also something that is often used to provide a part time income. The internet provides lots of markets for semi-professional photographers to sell their work in. Popular outlets include: stock photo websites, personal galleries and host sites like Redbubble and Smugmug. There are lots of resources on the web with information on how to sell photos on the internet. . Photography is a brilliant career for travel. Many areas of photography require you do a lot of travelling. Photojournalists working for news agencies have to report on breaking news from wherever it may be coming. Fine art landscape photographers often travel to the most beautiful areas of the world to capture beautiful images of nature. Advertising photographers are often required to shoot in specific destinations throughout the world. Wildlife photographers get to visit the diverse habitats of animals from around the world. Whatever kind of photography you do, travel pretty much comes with the territory! . In order to forge a career in photography there are several options. It's not mandatory to have a photography degree, but it certainly helps if you are hoping to be employed, as opposed to running your own business. It's worth spending time in the studio, or business, of a successful photographer in your niche. Read, learn and absorb everytghing you can through books, online tutorials, camera clubs and magazines. In the link below you'll find a full guide on how to become a photographer and what you can do in photography. (MORE)
The sensitivity of the light sensor is measured in ISOanalogous to photographic film's sensitivity to light, its "film speed," which is described by ISO 5800:1987. Hence, the film's speed is often referred to as its "ISO number.". ISO (International Standards Organization).. In digital photography… the higher the iso, the greater the risk of "noise" in the image. Digital image "noise" appears as colored dots all over the image especially noticeable in the darker regions.

because there is no place to put film in the camera. The memory card takes up too much space.
Because the images can easily be changed from the original, and there is no negative to which they can be compared.
Police photography or, more accurately, forensic photography would be used to: 1. take pictures of a crime scene 2. take pictures of evidence 3. take pictures of injuries 4. take pictures of vandalism.
Digital photography noise is a common occurrence in photography when the setting of the ISO is too high or if you are using a cheap digital camera. .

When you've removed the tradition, elitism and semantics often involved in this issue, you could argue that be simply by placing the ability to produce images in the hands of the masses, digital photography has allowed otherwise unreachable brains to experiment in the medium. While it could be arg…ued that monkey-friendly typewriters aren't going to produce Much Ado any time soon, there are always those on the periphery worth considering. In addition to this, there is a historical reference worth considering. Digital photography isn't the first time that photography has been taken out of the hands of the the few and placed into the hands of the many. In 1900 Eastman Kodak produced a $1 camera (including film), up until then, cameras were expensive and developing the images tricky. The result was a huge increase in the number of photographs being taken - this created a distinctive style of photography (the snapshot) which echos still today, and acted as an important record of that period of time (see Joseph August Lux KÃ¼nstlerische Kodakgeheimnisse ). So to summarize - Digital photography has improved the quality of photography, through accessibility and proliferation. (MORE)

Photography is the art of taking photographs. Simply put, it is just painting pictures using light. It is a process involving a light-proof box (camera), a small window or opening (lens) and a 'canvas' (film or sensor). So what it does? It is drawing pictures but using light.
You can use photography everywhere but there are specific areas of photography like when people have interests of taking pictures of landscape or seascape.

Sure, but be sure to photograph your subject against a white background. This way you can digitally select the background and remove it. Then use the fabric picture as a new background. Photoshop allows you to use layers to easily accomplish that. Load your picture into Photoshop. Select the… background and delete it, leaving only the main subject and a transparent background. Load the fabric picture into another layer, and move that layer behind your picture. You can load as many different fabric pictures as you want, each into its own layer, and see which one goes best with your picture. Remember to save this new picture as a new Photoshop (.psd) file so you can come back and edit it later. NEVER save over your original picture. (MORE)
Can you use a digital photo of fabric you own for backgrounds for your photography on cards to sell?
Depending on your processing software, as one idea you can create a background "layer." Not unlike email stationery.
It didn't really change anything, other than for those in professions that require their photos to be quickly distributed. Film is still widely available and perfectly fine for amateur use, although I do know some professionals who use film and get their work published in major magazines.
Photography is typically used to capture the beauty and finesse in the world. It shows people another side of the world that they would normally never see. Visit the related links below to take a look at some of the pictures people have taken so you can get a better perspective on things.
For most "amateur" or "snapshot" photographers, there's virtually no disadvantage. For anything more serious, you start to see shortcomings, but there are shortcomings in a lot of things: 1. Lag time: the time it takes from when you press the shutter release until the shutter actually opens and c…loses to capture the image. In the good old days, if you pressed the shutter down all the way, you took the picture. With digital cameras there can be a delay, and that could cause you to miss the moment that you wanted to capture. 2. Enlargements: because the ability to enlarge is dependent to a fair extent on the resolution power of the camera, you need significantly higher resolution for super large prints or really tight crops. In the good old days of film, film "grain" was such that just about any film under 400 ASA (almost like ISO) you could get pictures sharp as tacks up to 2x3 feet with no problem, even if you had to do some cropping. In digital photography, you need upwards of 18 mp to assure a sharp print with no crop and even higher with any significant crops, and those cameras are 10x the cost of a film camera. Eventually the mps will go up and the cost will go down, but it's happening slower than one might like. 3. Delicacy: Especially with DSLRs that allow you to change lenses, sensors are susceptible to dust, and dust will affect your image (and require you to process any defects out). And we're talking a single speck of dust. Keeping a film camera clear of dust is less difficult or critical (although it can happen of course). 4. Electronics generally: there are non-digital cameras around that are 50 years old and are just as good as the day they were new, or can be adjusted to be darn close. Digital cameras have a "click life", meaning their components may have a significantly shorter usable life. (MORE)
It's no different to film. Exposure refers to the correct amount of light coming into the camera to achieve an accurate rendition of the image being captured. So if you point the camera at an 18% grey card you expose it for long enough, or short enough, to achieve 18% grey rendition.
ISO is lighting for your camera. So if you click on ISO and set it higher it will make your picture lighter, if you set it lower your picture will be darker so if it really bright outside you will want a lower ISO, but say it is cloudy and dark you may want your ISO a little higher.
Sort of, but digital photography does not use chemicals. Images are printed using printers and the inks are chemical compounds, but there are no developing chemicals used.
Conventional photography usually means the camera records images onto film. Digital photography involves an electronic form of saving the information.
I'm guessing that traditional photography would be with a SLR camera using film. & Digital photography is, well digital.
you be a photography by doing a vision outside then remembering it to a camera that you hold

Tilt-shift miniature style photos are pictures of real-life scenes that are manipulated to look like model photographs.
The progression of the term is " Pic ture el ement", "Picel", "Pixel". One Pixel Element consists of a series of numbers corresponding to red, blue, and green values usually ranging from 0 to 255. 0 is "no light", 255 is "maximum light". So a pixel called rgb(0,0,0) would be BLACK, and rgb(255,255,…255) would be WHITE. Other colors could be rgb(255,0,0) RED rgb(0,255,0) GREEN rgb(0,0,255) BLUE In practice, your computer monitor translates these values to pixels on your monitor. Each pixel group on your monitor has a RED, GREEN, and BLUE element. If a speck on your photo is defined as rgb(34,255,67), a pixel on your monitor turns on each element to the values defined in that number group... 34 for the red element, 255 full on green, and 67 blue, twice as bright as the red. I don't know what color that is but it can be pretty. Mostly green with some red and twice as much blue... shudder. A monitor is usually measured in pixels. A typical 22" widescreen monitor might be 1680 pixels across by 1050 pixels down. Your digital camera resolution is also measured in pixels - 2,289 x 1,712 pixels for example. If you multiply the pixels across by the pixels down, you will find that this camera would be around 4 Mega(Million) Pixels, and a picture from it would fill almost two of the monitors mentioned above. Printer resolution is measured in DOTS, which correspond to pixels, but are stored as a separate setting (PPI VS DPI). If you counted pixels per inch (PPI) on your monitor you would find that there are only 72 or 98, the industry standards. However your printer is probably capable of at least 300 Dots per inch (DPI). SO - If that 4MP picture (that fills two monitors put together at 72PPI ) is printed at 300 DPI, you would have to count on the picture shrinking in physical size accordingly, by the same ratio - 300:72 or 4:1. Instead of a 44 inch picture on screen(s) you would get an 11 inch picture printed on paper at 300dpi. Make sense? Any questions, corrections, omissions, or clarification?

The term photography is argued to have been coined by Sir John Hersche during a lecture to the Royal Society of London on March 14th, 1839. However, photography actually appeared in an article in a German newspaper the month before by a Berlin astronomer named Johann von Maedler.
Metering in photography is measuring the amount of light. Digital cameras have light meters built in to the camera, allowing the camera to automatically set the exposure.
The fundimentals of photography are very similar for both film and digital photography. Composition, exposure, lighting and preparation of the subject are both very similar in either case. They only differ once an exposure is made.
There are many schools throughout the country that offer a Bachelors degree in Digital Photography. If one is interested in pursuing this degree contacting an Art Institute is ones best bet for information.
There are a plethora of options to sell items on the web that are used. However, the most practical and visible to potential buyers are Amazon and eBay by far.
Photo filters are used to protect the camera lens from scratches but can also cause a distortion of the image as well, causing the picture to be flawed.
The Complete Digital Photography series is a book for digital photographers. Instruction on camera controls, exposure, and composition help any photographer with shooting, post production, and printing.
