As a professional photographer for the past 31 years, I am acutely aware of the magnitude of the effect that the digital revolution has had on my profession. The vast majority of professional photographers who have kept up with the technology will agree that ‘digital’ is fantastic Oahu photographers.
Of course, there are many professionals, while agreeing that digital is great, will moan that “digital has caused the loss of much business!” We’ll get back to that in Part Two, but first I’d like to say that the advent and development of computers and programs like Photoshop, in my humble opinion, is cause enough for celebration!
I probably should admit at this point that I am in no way a computer “Geek”, and that to me, Photoshop is magic! It amazes me every time I use it. I can’t praise the makers of Photoshop enough. But I digress…
I have used film in my business for a long time. And I used medium format film which gave me beautiful, crisp images I could enlarge to 30×40 very nicely. I was in no hurry to “go digital” until I saw with my own eyes, and my own images that digital could produce the same quality I had been used to. I had never seen a ‘digital’ print that could fool me into thinking it was from film.
