Re: What was ?

That it is a very long road from picking up and snapping your first camera at something you see, to getting an image that reflects that vision. The first time for me was in 1946 with a Brownie Six-20 (I was 10).

It has also become an expensive "toll" road as well since the inception of digital, with its quickly depreciating equipment, new technology and software and its myriad updates.

However, it does seem worth it!

Re: What was ?

Angelo you have hit the nail on the head there pure magic

Don another nail on the head the cost can be frightening but not always necessary for a bit of fun, my granddaughter has just had her first digital camera for her 7th birthday and she loves it to bits, ( I just wont ask her in future what she would like for xmas or birthdays )

and you have broke my thoughts i too used a brownie box as a kid and only just realised that you looked through them a bit like the screen of a digital ( boy did they take some great photo's and built like a tank )

When buying a digital camera think of it like buying a film camera and several years of film and processing at the same time.

For a good many of us, it comes out fairly even.

Re: What was ?

This was my first camera. I recall being quite excited to be getting a complete kit with flash! What I quickly learned (and still practice today) is, to use in-camera flash sparingly.

Re: What was ?

I'm still learning, but the most important thing I've learned is that photography is all about light. The quality of light and the way it shapes things.

Re: What was ?

I agree about the light. When I've taken a really good photo, it's usually because the light was just right. I've become very aware that the glare of a too-close flash will ruin a picture every time. When I have to use the flash, I'll back up and zoom in, so that I get just enough light without the glare.

I'm saving my pennies for a camera and flash that will give me more control. Wish I could control the sun! In the end, the light makes or breaks the picture.
