Digital cameras make taking photographs easier

I personally have seen a big change in my career as a professional wedding photographer. When I first started out I used film with three cameras to shoot a wedding. Two 35mm Nikons, one had black & white the other colour film and a 6×6 Hasselblad, which had 12 frames to shoot. Now, in the digital age, I use one, a Canon 5D. But the competition is also much greater now, as most people have access to an affordable digital cameras and software, it’s so much easier to take a photograph.

One can take 100’s of images to try a capture that special moment, but it’s the experience of years working as a photographer looking through the viewfinder that counts. It’s a lifetime’s education of seeing what makes a great photograph and taking it. A photograph has to look ‘real’ and have depth to be seen and stand out, not just as a record of an event, but as a photograph in it’s entirety, the whole of the subject, something that provokes. ¬†That makes the difference, a good photographer lives and breaths in that moment of something whole.
