The Advantage of Digital Photography in Image Editing

Most people who are new in photography question the experts, “what’s better? Analogue or digital photography”? Their differences are actually obvious.

Digital photography allows the person to transfer his or her photo on another device (i.e. computer) immediately after the photo was taken. However there are some disadvantages. Since it is “digital”, the capability of the photographer can be questioned. Unlike analogue cameras, you can edit your photo’s quality if it is digital. Analogue users can too, however, the quality of the photo can be greatly reduced if the photo was scanned (RGB and scanner’s DPI issues).

Nevertheless, digital photography is promising. The person has to have an eye for creativity and a knack for innovation for the edited photo to look excellent.

The best thing about analogue cameras.

Why do you think analogue cameras are a photographer’s favorite? He/she can go digital if he/she wants to anyway. Besides, it’s much more convenient to shoot photos using digital cameras as you can transfer, edit, duplicate to a thousand with just one click, the photo immediately after you press that shoot button. You don’t even have to worry about film waste.

But even though digital cameras (even those digital SLRs) give you these perks, there is this one thing that an analogue camera can give that a digital one can’t—and that is fulfillment.

Yes, amateur and professional photographers love the old-school feel. I personally know one, a student-professional, who prefers taking pictures using his analogue SLR. He said that no other feeling can be compared (as a photographer) when he shoots with his old SLR. The fact that you develop your own pictures and you see the result after, the feeling of satisfaction is priceless.

Facebook Photo Privacy

Facebook, as we all know, is the leading social networking site at present. This fact is exhibited by the obvious rapid increase in users every single day. Facebook is commonly used for the purpose and aim of entertainment, communication, meeting new people, and having new friends. With this, majority of the users find interest in meeting and talking to even the most random people just to maximize its reach. This is why users are always reminded of the limitations that go with using and involving one’s self in Facebook. As much as we want to keep our information to ourselves, the reach of such site will just lead to other people being able to access even the most private part and information. This is why Facebook has been continuously working towards ensuring the safety and welfare of its users which now include the photo privacy option which limits the access of a picture and album. This setting is made to restrict others access and limit to those only directly associated with the photos posted. In this way, one’s privacy is taken in consideration.
