Taking Wedding Photography One Step Forward with Digital Photography
Cameras have always been present at times of cherished events. They can really help people capture and keep all of their treasured memories. Of course, during weddings/nuptials, those ever-reliable cameras are surely present.
It is well known that weddings are one of the most wonderful events in a person’s life. Many people wait what feels like a lifetime for the day they can have that sacred union with the one that they love. And to help them capture and share that precious time of memories from this great event, cameras are required.
It’s amazing how far our technology has come with regards to photography. Many devices and gadgets have been introduced to make it extraordinarily easy to capture those treasured, special moments.
One of the major advantages of the digital camera is that it lets users skip the usual film separation process, which is among the most time-consuming processes in photography. By removing this time-consuming process a person gets results faster and pictures faster. Living in our fast-paced society, everyone want to see their pictures as soon as humanly possible, so quick results are a must!
Another advantage of digital wedding photography is that, even though it provides fast results, the quality of each printed photo is not sacrificed. This means that no matter how fast you get your pictures, the result is still beautiful.
Another advantage of digital wedding photography is that it provides customization options to its users. This means that a user can easily edit flaws out of photos before they are printed. You can change the size, brightness, contrast or sharpness of your photo. You can even add or remove some details on your photos.
Digital photography has also been integrated into most cellular phones. This means that you only need to bring a phone to take pictures during weddings. Nevertheless, it is a fact professional digital cameras can provide better results than the cameras of cellular phones. Most professional digital cameras take at photos of at least 10 mega pixels in size, while cellular phones usually have a lower size of 1 to 5 mega pixels.
But perhaps the greatest advantage of digital wedding photography is being able to easily share and reproduce your photos over and over again without making any variations between the first printed photo and the last photo printed. Digital photography allows users to save their files on their computers, which would mean that they can be reproduced without wearing out any film, and decreasing the image quality over time.
But, no matter how great a technology is, it’s still not perfect. One of the major disadvantages of digital photography is that it is not ideal for 4-color printing. Why? Well this is because of the fact that there will always be a variation between the images you will see on your pc monitor and your 4 color printed photo.
Why? Because computer monitors use RGB or Red, Green & Blue. Four color printing uses CMYK. C is cyan (a blue-green color), M is magenta (a reddish pink color), Y is yellow, and K is a pure black ink, the key plate or keyline color.
RGB and CMYK have entirely different outputs. So, no matter what you do, the image on your monitor will never be the same as your 4 color photos, unless there are computer monitors that also use CMYK to produce colors for the images and texts.
Nevertheless, even with this apparent disadvantage digital wedding photography is still better, easier and more accessible than film photography. Try it and see for yourself.
