Straight Forward Online Digital Photography Tutorials

Jul 21, 2008
Photography encompasses several issues that one should take into consideration to understand it more clearly. It should be simple but the word photography has a few meanings even if we don't use them very often. Generally speaking, it is the art of taking pictures by means of light.

If it wasn't for light, photography as we know it would not exist because light is responsible for the color, brightness and contrast you see in the picture. But digital photography needed a different method to achieve this. In this instant world in which we all live, digital photography has changed the way the average enthusiast takes and prints pictures, allowing amazing effects to be created on a humble home pc.

As with any new technology, it is a whole new subject to come to terms with but it does help to be aware of a few principles to get you on your way. One of the basics that you should remember about digital photography is that it doesn't use film and there's no processing time involved with it. Convenience is the real meaning of digital photography today with software that even the average person can use to produce award winning creations.

Not only are the images instantly available but with the huge reduction in print costs, they can now be printed out at home. Film photography is the only victim in this new digital photography age but you will be amazed at the effects you can achieve when you finally change to it.

Creating special effects to enhance your images using your computer can be a lot of fun and produce great images. And deleting the bad images and only printing the good means that that digital photography is much more cost effective. There are so many options as to what you can do with your images once you have captured them; print, share online and create a slideshow to name a few examples.

The difference of digital to classic photography lies on the way the image is generated. In the traditional method, the image captured on the film is developed in a darkroom where chemicals are used to create negatives which are then printed before you can view the final product of the shot. With digital photography, there's no need for film, dark room and processing because the image is captured digitally by means of an electronic sensor.

Digital cameras have nearly made film cameras obsolete as they do not have to be developed and even simple image editing can be carried out using the camera itself. The costs are obviously greatly reduced using this system as no images, film or paper is wasted.

To learn more about digital cameras, editing programs, printers and more you need to look on line at the large number of sites devoted to the subject. There are camera reviews, samples of images from many different types of cameras, manuals and much more.
