Luis C Hernandez The difference between film and digital photography There are many differences between film and digital photography. The sensor: The most obvious difference between film and digital is the sensor used to take the photo. They prefer the convenience. The result is a photo “printed” on the film. The differences are listed in no particular order. Following is a list of differences that are important to understand. With film cameras a film sensitive to light is placed behind the lens. What does a different sensor mean? The main difference is in the Depth of Field. To most amateur photographers they do not matter much. ease of use and lower cost of digital cameras and are not going to revert to the film age. Put together all the pixels comprise one photo. With digital cameras a fixed electronic sensor (sometimes known as CCD) is situated behind the lens.27 There is a lot of information out there that can catapult your moneymaking skills with photographs.

The feedback: One of the most important features of the digital camera is instant feedback. The cost of a photo: Photos taken with a digital camera literally cost nothing. It takes a lot of the guessing away from photography. for developing the negative and for printing the photo. Almost all digital cameras include a small LCD screen. With film cameras there is no way to know how the photo on the film will look like when printed. The capacity: With ever growing storage capacities digital cameras today can hold hundreds and sometimes thousands of photos on a single media. New shooting angles: Just a few days ago I took a great photo with my digital camera that I would have never taken with my film one. The ability to see how the photo looks like results in better photos. The photos are kept in erasable memory and thus can always be discarded at no cost. Also the photos you would like to keep can be copied to digital media such as a computer’s hard disk. Being able to see the photos on the spot results in an educated decision how to fix a photo or how to better compose it. With storage prices going down the cost of saving a photo on disk is practically zero. For that reason many professional journalists carry a few cameras on them and instead of changing rolls they turn and use another camera just so that they do not miss a shooting opportunity. The result is that a digital camera has practically infinite capacity. I held the camera in my hand and positioned it down where it almost touched the ground and I started shooting.28 cameras almost infinite.

I probably took 50 or more photos. You can always have a few more in your pocket and changing is very fast. Film does cost money. Once a photo is shot you can go back and watch it on that screen.

Overhead shots where you raise the camera over your head are much easier to do since you can still see what the camera is shooting by just looking up at its LCD screen. a grainy photo and more. For example there are indoor and outdoor films or films with different light sensitivity. The myth of quality: While it is true that film photography has its advantages the claim for superior quality is no longer true.

These are your main points of interest.43 When using this rule there are two questions you need to ask yourself. take an image using each of them. Sometimes when breaking a rule in photography you'll find that it works and results in a fantastic image. like a lighthouse on an horizon or a cottage on a rolling green hill. Try each of the four intersecting points in the image. This is achieved placing a secondary object that doesn't compete with the main subject on one of the opposite two thirds intersections. the focal or disappearing point is placed on one of the intersections.

Digital Photography eBook Review: Camera Dollars Income System
The “Camera Dollars Income System eBook” written by Brian Moore claims to contain everything you need to know to make money with your digital camera. This is one of the few books currently available on the market today with the type of hardnosed information and resources those bent on doing digital photography work will ever need. Other books I have seen seem outdated - being primarily theoretical and not very helpful in today's market -- when compared with the freshness of Moore's eBook. Brian Moore has been earning a very high income for more than two years while using this system. He continues to make his living as a free-lance digital photographer. His advice is timely and useful.

151 The ability of the layman to earn a living by selling his photos is a fairly recent phenomenon in digital photography circles. Moore does an admirable job of breaking down the whole business of digital photography without getting bogged down in the history of its development. His audience is clearly the layman with a digital camera who wants to earn a part-time or full-time income selling his photos on the internet. In this eBook, you’ll learn: 'How to' earn ongoing residual revenue from each digital photo you submit online; About a relatively unknown photography market that is exploding thanks to the internet; How to ensure you are getting the best fee possible for each photo you submit online; How NOT to get taken advantage of and how to ensure you are paid a fair price for your photos; Resources to find out what buyers are looking for and why buyers are buying photos; Who pays the highest rates - and how to market your photos to buyers so they will come back again and again for your work; Ideas to create multiple streams of income from your digital photos such as turning your photos into saleable screen savers; How to find websites that will practically beg you for your photos - and who’ll be willing to pay a premium for each photo you submit to them; How to select the right keywords to use with your photos - use the wrong keywords and your sales may slowly suffer, use the right keywords and sales will soar; What a "field rep" is and how you can start providing this indemand service immediately;

152 How to sell your images on your own website and keep all the profits for yourself - includes advice on how to post your photos on a web page, how to flood your site with traffic and how to write copy; How to sell your images offline in your own profitable brick and mortar photography store; How to make money in the competitive world of celebrity gossip sites - these tips are extremely powerful and will give you a leg up on your competition; How to take pictures of sporting events and sell them online - follow Brian's tips and he promises you'll make money; How to make your images look professional for extra cash even if you are an amateur just starting out - Brian demonstrates how to get the perfect shot every time with your digital camera; What to take pictures of - find out what types of images are in the most demand in this chapter; How to sell your photos on eBay - Brian gives some great tips on this and makes it so simple; There’s a lot more helpful information in the book regarding the finer points of setting up your business. There's not much fluff and it's easy to read. One of the impressive things that became apparent after I had finished the book was that digital photography work does not require you to buy expensive digital photography equipment, create any websites, ship anything, get involved with adult or pornographic content, or to have any special computer skills. It also does not require any extensive customer support. Moore drives home the fact that digital photography work is growing faster than the supply of available photographers. Photographers are needed worldwide - and thanks to the abilities of the Internet, anyone who will take the time to read and follow the instructions in this book has a legitimate chance of earning a very good part-time income or an excellent full-time income as a digital photographer selling photos online.

154 technology is really good and the likelihood of a card going bad is minimal, it still happens even with the best cards. The question you need to ask yourself is that if a card does go bad can I afford to lose the images? I think there are two factors here to look at. 1. What is the purpose of the shoot? Is the shoot for pleasure or one that I cannot afford to lose images on? Most of us don't want to lose images even if it is a casual shoot for pleasure. On the other hand, there are times when it is essential that images are not lost, i.e. when shooting for business. Despite the purpose of the shoot, it is still good practice to regard any shoot as important. Get into the habit of regarding all data as sacred and put into practice methods to prevent any digital losses. 2. How to minimize any loss. It is inevitable that there will be an occasion when you will either lose the card, drop it in water or the card will fail. The key to this is minimizing the loss. How is this done? Here is the answer to whether you should use one large card or several smaller cards. It is absolutely essential to use multiple cards when shooting important events or occasions. Why? If you are shooting across several cards or filling up smaller cards, the loss, damage or failure of one card means that you don't lose everything. So by using several smaller cards you are able to salvage any shoot or occasion with the remaining cards. So what strategy should we use when using several cards? Start at the beginning and just keep shooting, filling cards as you go? The method I use is a very simple one. Firstly, decide on the number of cards you will need to complete the shoot. Then as you shoot use this process to safeguard the integrity of the shoot. Block out the event, occasion or holiday into segments. For example, if it's a holiday and you have ten cards to use and the holiday is over ten days, take three of the cards and alternate them each day until full. Then when they are full take the next three and do the same. What you are achieving by doing this is spreading the images of the day, or the block of time you have decided upon, over three cards so that if one is lost you still have a good record of the day or event. It's a

155 little more work but it can save you a lot of trauma if one of the cards goes missing or is damaged. I suppose that you can see my point now if you were to use one large card over the period of time and it went missing. This method is even more vital if you are photographing as an occupation. Always keep in mind the fact that your data is precious and whatever the loss it is gone forever. So think before you go out and shoot. Do you want to learn more about photography in a digital world? I've just completed a brand new e-course delivered by e-mail.

How Camera Lenses Determine Digital Photography Success
Have you ever taken a picture and wondered after you took the shot just what were you thinking? Has it looked as if you were nowhere near the subject of your shot? This is something that happens a whole lot, however, there is hope and you can still take beautiful photographs with some help. It is best for these methods if you have a camera that will allow you to change the lenses; however, there are also some cameras, which will allow for aftermarket lenses to be added which gives the same effect you are looking for. First type of lens to consider is the normal lens. This is something that will generally have a range of 45mm to typically only 60mm. However, while you are trying to figure out exactly what you can see from this range, consider your normal eyesight range. This is the best

156 way to describe a normal camera lens. Many SLR cameras include the normal lens standard, however many people are opting for more advanced lenses lately instead. Next type of lens is wide-angle lenses. These typically range from the 5mm to the 35mm range. Different lenses fluctuate between the various ranges and it is ok if your lens does not cover the full 5mm to 35mm distance. When you are looking for digital photograph success with wide-angle shots, you must have a wide-angle lens or you simply cannot get the great shot you are looking for. One of the biggest problems is wide angle lenses tend to be very expensive depending upon your camera. Moving along we have telephoto lenses. If you are looking for digital photography success with shots from great distances then a good telephoto lens is an absolute necessity that you cannot pass up. Typical telephoto lenses cover distances that range from 85mm to as much as 600mm easily. Consider that you can capture the perfect shot from thousands of feet away with the right telephoto lens and you can see why this is awesome. As you can imagine having the right lens for your needs can make a huge difference in terms of what is effective and what is not for capturing the perfect digital photography shot. If you have any doubts about whether your camera can change lenses, look towards your owners guide to help answer any questions about how to remove the lens and attach a new lens so you too can find digital photography success no matter what the shot you are after.
