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 sensiti…ve film. The captured image is then stored as a digital file ready for digital processing (colour correction, sizing, cropping, etc.) Now the important thing is will digital make you a better photographer ? and should you go digital ?
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 gra…dually 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.
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. T…he image (rendered upside down) projected on the wall was used by the painters, rather than looking at the scene itself. . Seriously ? You've gotta be kidding! Common sense, man! When the camera was invented photography came about. They went hand in hand .
because there is no place to put film in the camera. The memory card takes up too much space.
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 injurie…s 4. take pictures of vandalism.
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 argued 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.
Catalog photography is a type of commercial photography that is published for pubic viewing in a catalog. Digital Photography is a good way to make photography accesible for c…atalogs. As an instant media form, photographs for catalogs can be made cheaply and modified more effectively for use in a catalog.
Yes, although it can contain one image, or 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.
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 br…ight 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.
What is the method of photography that first allowed families in the US and Europe to collect photos of themselves?
The method of photography that first allowed families in the UnitedStates and Europe to collect photos of themselves was:
"No. The Laser Jet 8159dn is a printer, not a digital camera. As such, it cannot be used for digital photography. However, it can be digitally photographed, and it can also be… used to print photos."
I would recommend Adobe Photoshop as it is very advanced but is easy to get used to, and it can edit images with professional style.
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.
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.
