Gone are the days when fine art photography uses camera that is set manually and uses rolls upon rolls of films that are developed in a dark room with chemicals.
That has long been changed by digital art photography that made the process intelligent and efficient.
A variety of light sensors that are focused by the lens are used in contemporary digital art photography to capture the picture. This is in contrast to the exposures being made on traditional photographic films that are light sensitive. Its impressive technological capacity is exhibited when the pictures are stored and downloaded into computer systems that allow them to be manipulated, edited, transformed, transmitted, saved and printed. These allow the making of digital photos fast, inexpensive, accessible and easy.
Inspite of the intelligence of the digital art photography, it also has disadvantages like its capacity is restrained by the memory of the camera, the digitizing device and the output tools like printers and monitors.
This implies the significance of the capacities of the hardware. This triggers the ongoing competition between technology providers to upgrade the powere of digital cameras and those built in mobile phones and other hardware. The results lead to improved technologies of phones and cameras, higher pixels, greater zooming powers, high-memory chips, etc. Touch screen and 3-D technologies are also being improved to further the capability of these cameras for finer products in digital art photography.
Despite of it all, superbly done images can only be done by human artistry manipulating the technology to his advantage. Noted photographers of this generation do not only make use of what the digital camera can offer automatically, but rather explore and experiment with lights and filters to stage a photograph. Filtering choices across the spectrum is a technique that similarly pushes technology providers. Printing devices and mediums are also getting hyped for better quality prints.
The scope of domination of digital art photography in this age is unmistakably impressive as a hobby, business or profession. The race for technologies is one and one is apt to speculate what can still come.
What about technologies made cheaper?
