An old hobby – A new Joy

This year has been a transition year for me. My real joy in photography is black and white, Studio Glamour Photography and Architecture. As with most people I do not have room for a full time darkroom. In the last few years I have done very little photography except for a little landscape and a few friends weddings, but this year I really got back into my main three photographic loves. What spurred me on was my introduction to digital.

Over the last few years I have occasionally tried digital cameras and been generally less then impressed. Slow, poor battery life and hard to use. Then last year I had the opportunity to use a Cannon EOS 1D (the latest model). I finally thought that digital had arrived, it was fast responsive and produced fine quality images. Of course going digital is a big step and you need to make a number of adjustments. Are you going to shoot RAW, JPeg (JPG), how are you going to handle your storage requirements, backup, Image processing and work flow.

I decided on two approaches, first read all I could and talk to photographers who had made the jump. Second buy a small digital compact and try different things. So for the past year I have been shooting film on my SLR’s and digital on my small Nikon S3 compact. Its been a lot of fun and really inspired me to take more pictures this year then I have for the last three. A few months ago, I made the jump and bought myself my first digital SLR. I look forward to the next year and many more photographs.
