Stop Thinking Like A Film Photographer!

I’ve just finished an article about advanced camera exposure modes that has been over a year in the making. You can find it on our website at Stop Thinking Like A Film Photographer. Unfortunately, our website is still under revision, and I don’t know where our how-to articles are going to wind up. Right now you can only reach this article through the above link (unless you find it so valuable that you either memorize the address or bookmark it in your browser).

The article compares film and digital cameras as it talks about the different controls you have for exposure (and their artistic implications), and also expresses my opinion on how much control over those parameters you can afford to leave to the camera itself (and the consequences of giving your camera that control).

I would like to thank our friend and fellow Miami photographer Robert Holmes for his input to this article.

Although I grew up in Garden Grove, California, I have lived here in South Miami longer than I've lived anywhere else in the world. I've been married to my wonderful wife, Nancy, longer than I was ever without her. We were both teachers. Nancy recently retired after 40 years. I have also spent time as an officer in the Coast Guard, a commercial property appraiser, and an electrical engineering student. Now I'm technical support for Bee Happy Graphics. That means I handle this blog, our web page, and all E-mail, I do all post-processing and printing of the images, I cut mats and glass and frames. If you have a technical question, I would be the one trying to answer it.
