Is The Best Photographer a Digital One?

Questions about settings use on cameras, asking about aperture, exposure, contrast, shutter speed and the list goes on, can be dull! We are in a world of digital, so why not take advantage of that? Many photographers said goodbye to film a long time ago and have never looked back.

We are surrounded by digital so let’s not shy away from it. The Telegraph recently wrote an article about a man who gambled his ‘new kitchen fund’, investing it into digital art which made him £500K — impressive. It shows us that however much we may not want to admit it, digital is the way forward.

So, although we may be unable to provide you with all the camera technique info, what we can do is link a YouTube video tutorial for anyone who wishes to improve their knowledge on camera settings and manual functionality. Remember to learn from your camera, make mistakes, it’s all about trial and error. Thank us later!
