Photography

Art?

Science?

Or in my case, luck!

With the advent of digital technology I suspect it is more a science nowadays

Digital cameras have revolutionised photography and given everyone the opportunity to 'play' and experiment as much as they want.
It has brought photography 'out of the closet' or is that the 'darkroom' ..

Buy a big memory card and......

Buy a big memory card and click, click, click away.

Download all the photos to your PC and delete the junk, you're bound to end up with at least a few good ones!

I think its a bit of all three

Art - You eye your shot up

Science - You gotta know how to work the damn camera!

Luck - Sometimes needed in large amounts...

Nearly all digital cameras are now 'point and shoot' but it's not the quality of the camera or lens that determines if a pic is good or not ..
some of the best pictures ever were taken with a pin hole camera..
it's the person composing the shot .... and that's art !

An example of pin hole photography.

Well I think my photos have got a lot better since having a digital camera, as Daveand carol said you can take 100's of photos then delete the ones that did not work, I have got some good animal photos as a result of being able to click away without it costing the earth, but I guess the real proffesionals and artists can still erese the bad shots in their minds before committing themselves to celluloid.
Didn't the proffesionals used to take Poloroids first to check all was OK or have I dreamt that ?

Been taking photographs since 1959.
Wish I could take a good 'un!
Been using 5% of what photoshop has to offer, for ages. It is a proffesional bit of tacke.
But just found Googles Picara2 to store, sort, view & edit diggy photos. Its free, amazingly easy to use and although its not all singing & dancing, it's damn close.
Give it ago, well worth looking thru it.
Google main page, click on more and down load Picara 2.

posting pics.

Forgive me for seeming thick, but how the hull do you put pictures in a reply?

Many is the time that I would like to include a picture to illustrate what I am talking about, but am unable to through lack of knowledge.

Please be gentle with me.

Hi Texas

First upload your pictures to an online album like ' Photobucket '
http://photobucket.com/

This will enable you to add the 'url' of your photo to your post using the 'insert image' button ..
Sounds complex but it's real easy

Hi Ya all

I have a Nikon D70 - just sold my D100 - and have taken about 15000 pics with it in the 18 months I have had it. Mostly use full auto but use aperture priority when I shoot a basketball game for inclusion in our local paper. I shoot mainly raw as this gives me plenty of scope in Photoshop CS to correct anything that is a bit off. On average I take 400 pics when covering my granddaughters football team and about 200 at the basketball. Now, if I had been shooting film I would be lucky to take 36 pics in a session and then have to wait for them to be processed - even film take crap pics but not as many. Cost about £5. With digital, take hundreds and discard those you dont want. Cost £0. OK, factor in the camera - £950 new, 80-400 VR lens £1280, 50mm 1.8 £175, 24-120 VR lens £499 and an SB800 flash £390 + 8 x 1 gig CF cards and 2 x 2gig CF cards about £1000 then. If you add a Manfrotto Tripod and Mono pod plus a Lowepro gadget bag, it adds up to a few bob. Still a boy has to have his toys

Sometimes things happen for a reason
