Today, we have a great abundance of cameras on the market – from low-end point-and-shoot cameras to DSLRs to digital SLRs. As we enter the digital camera market, the market is changing rapidly and there are a wide range and variety of cameras to choose from.
There have been a few technological advancements that have impacted photography, and I believe that I am very far from being the last one to take a leap forward. There are still many challenges surrounding photography today. It is a slow and tedious process, in which photography students often fail. There are still lots of new cameras being introduced in the market with minimal marketing and promotion.
I believe that the technology will continue expanding rapidly and in some cases, will have a similar effect to the technology of the computer. A computer can be used effectively or not at all, depending on one’s purpose and preferences. It doesn’t matter one’s personal preferences. There are hundreds of other cameras of all kinds that work well and can be used effectively.
I am not saying that we should stop experimenting or experimenting or experimenting in any specific area – a photographer should always experiment. In fact, I encourage it. But if a photographer only experiment a bit at a time, he will not learn as much about how to go about photography as it will be too late to make a big difference by the time he needs to be taking advantage of his new or improved camera.
I also believe that experimentation may lead to greater success in business. Just as an actor knows a lot more about acting than a student, I believe that a photographer needs to be a student. I have the confidence that my camera will make an enormous difference in my life – but it can only have a positive impact if there is enough enthusiasm by the photographer.
Some photographers may feel that it is not enough to be good at photography. We might think that our talents are not enough to get things done but, at the end of the day, we do need a camera to photograph.
If you do not have the patience to take time and effort to be a good photographer, don’t take it to the extreme. If you get stuck because of your own passion or lack of understanding of photography, don’t be discouraged. Just keep experimenting until that passion and enthusiasm is enough.
What advice would you give to a beginner photographer?
Beginners often learn a lot by doing small, easy tasks first. By practicing slowly, and testing the camera, the new
