Digital Photography vs Film
During the last ten years, digital photography has made a big
impact in both professional and amateur photography. There are
advantages to both film photography and to the new digital photography
and often professional photographers will choose to use one for
Traditional film photography allows photographers to use the
precision of film for a sharp image, and to use the developing
process to produce a final image that can be changed by length
of exposure, and the mix of chemicals. It is difficult to change
the details of an image captured on film, so this tends to be a
provably accurate record of happenings.
Digital photography , on the other hand, produces an image that
can be manipulated endlessly. Items can be added or subtracted,
appearances can be changed and color transposed. The image, conversely,
is instantly visible, so that decisions for further images can
be made. Digital photographs can also be incorporated with other
images simply and easily. Digital photography can also become part
of the printing process of books and newspapers, as both the written
word and the images are recorded on the same medium - the computer.
Photographers use this choice of technologies in order to be
able to produce a better end product, and it is unlikely that either
one of them will disappear entirely.
