Although this is the age of digital photography, one can still purchase
cameras that use film. The key question is to ask why it is
advantageous to use digital photography. What are the wonders and
digital photography over the ordinary film camera?
You will still many
people that prefer using film not because they don’t know any better
but because they just haven’t taken the time to weigh the advantages or
are unfamiliar with modern technology much as the person who is afraid
Before the era of digital photography many people lost beautiful
pictures because they failed to take the film to be developed or lost
the film until it was too old to guarantee quality processing. There is
no need to worry about
processing the photographs in a certain period because you can take the
memory card at any time to get printed pictures or you can download the
memory card to your computer and print your own photographs at any time
you so desire.
mind that film is only good for a limited period of time so if you
misplace the used film or don’t take it for processing within a
specific time, you will lose some of the quality of the photographs.
With digital photography there is never a concern about the film
expiring because there is no film.
A great aspect of digital photography is being able to see the
photograph before you print it. Many times with film cameras the
lighting was not right or we failed to focus correctly and the picture
was blurry or otherwise distorted. With digital photography you can see
the picture right then and if it is not perfect, you can delete that
pose and begin again.
This avoids the disappointment of losing a
perfectly good pose because of focusing or exposure errors. You also do
not have to take additional shots just to make sure one of them comes
out the way you are hoping.
Digital photography has made picture taking for both amateurs and
professionals easier. Even professional photographs can be delivered
quicker because of digital photography and allow the customer to view
and choose the pictures almost immediately instead of having to wait
days for proofs and then another week or two for the pictures
Digital photography is wonderful and everyone can learn and enjoy the
fun of picture taking.
