Learn Digital Phoptography

Sep 17, 2008
Why did you switch to digital photography? A. I never have to limit the number of images I can photograph at your wedding. I am not wasting film, so I can keep shooting until I get the exact moment I want.

Where can I find out all about digital photography? There are a plethora of choices today! I personally have converted to this new medium, (thus I don't have to pack bags of film or worry about airport X-ray issues!) I have the following points to offer you: If you are buying an SLR camera that will take your existing interchangeable lenses, expect to spend serious money. The Nikon D100 body alone can be found selling for about U.S. $ 1,000.00 (May 2006), and the excellent new Nikon D70 for $ 999.00.The candid/photojournalistic aspects of your Wedding Day will be shot in High Resolution Digital, and you have the option of having your formal/portrait photography shot in Digital as well, or on Medium Format Film. Though I recommend Medium Format for all portrait work, I want to leave that choice up to you. I offer either option at the same price because I don't want cost to be a factor in your decision.

What happened to the Sony section? I no longer own a Sony camera and many of the questions and answers in that section were becoming outdated. I removed a few very outdated parts, then generalized the remaining questions and transferred them to the more general parts of the FAQ.Digital cameras offer you a very important advantage over film. They give you the capability to see and evaluate your pictures immediately. The downside of digital cameras, though, is that they are not nearly as forgiving of mistakes as film.

Now I can give you any image you want in color, black & white or sepia. C. Digital has made all kinds of art work more available and affordable.

What can I do to improve my digital photography? Digital cameras offer you a very important advantage over film. They give you the capability to see and evaluate your pictures immediately. The downside of digital cameras, though, is that they are not nearly as forgiving of mistakes as film. For example, film has an extremely wide exposure latitudethe amount you can miss your exposure by and still get a good printthat extends from one stop under to three stops over. Digital cameras give you only plus or minus 1/2 stop.The candid/photojournalistic aspects of your Wedding Day will be shot in High Resolution Digital, and you have the option of having your formal/portrait photography shot in Digital as well, or on Medium Format Film. Though I recommend Medium Format for all portrait work, I want to leave that choice up to you. I offer either option at the same price because I don't want cost to be a factor in your decision.

What is your opinion of digital photography ? There is no question that some of today's digital cameras can produce an image that is sharper and shows more detail than film.But digital is a very different medium than film and I still feel film has some useful qualities that are not yet present in digital. Also film can always be scanned into a digital format later (the way most Hollywood movies and TV commercials and shows are made.) The critical factor for you should be how good the photographer is at using the medium of their choice.A. I never have to limit the number of images I can photograph at your wedding.
