ot too far back in history, before the advent of digitalphotography, each photo was unique and special. A 
 photo
 was the actual card, something you could carry in your wallet, frame and keep on your desk, or hang on a wall. Albums used to be meticulously preserved. Often, photogra-phers used to insert handwritten captions on the back of thephoto describing the event or particulars of the photograph.Digital photography has changed how we handle photos,how we interact with them and even how we read them. What was once a costly affair, is now quite affordable. Anyone witha camera these days can claim to be an amateur photogra-pher. This is, in a way, good. People are increasingly gettinginterested in photography. However, this does backfire attimes as well, especially considering that the proliferation of images has reduced the ratio of inspiring shots to the run-of-the-mill ones that you come across everywhere. Although veterans still hold out with film, and at times even black-and-white film, it would not be fair to classify all kinds of digital photography as being sub-standard or without merit.Photography in the past century was a time-consumingprocess. Back then, there were no LCD screens on cameras toinstantly know how your photos would turn out. It had to bethe tough way out — trial and error. Enthusiasts and amateursalike had to wait for as much as a month, probably more, tofinish a film roll and develop it into hard copies. Photography was rather actively pursued back then — each photo delicate-ly sought after, because it was a distinct image of a particularobject, the individuality of each picture stood out.Moreover, each shot had to be planned, the camera hadto be understood, the lighting conditions evaluated, beforethe photographer even dared to open the shutter anddecide to capture a particular scene. These are some of thethings that are missed in these days of digital cameras. Ittook years of practice to make a half-decent photographerin the good old days of film, and digital cameras are nowchanging that.
