Photo sharing websites have become popular over the years, and now people are sharing their photos all across the internet. Photo sharing websites are easy and convenient to use, and they’re great places to upload and share your photos for others to see.
In a world of fast food, instant messaging, and children growing up way too soon, people are seeking something more permanent; a way of preserving memories in more than just their smart phone's iCloud. While the instant film camera may have been synonymous with the nineties, the release of Polaroid's Onestep 2 at the end of this year could herald in a new era of physical photography and even a revival of 35mm film. To celebrate instant film's comeback, here is a list of five reasons why everybody should get hold of one of these fantastic cameras.
My dad was a photographer. Amateur, but he understood all the moving parts. He had been involved in photography through 4-H and shot for his high school year book.
So, I am, by no means, an expert — I mean really, is anyone? However, here are a few tricks of the photography trade that I wish someone had compiled into one nice article without so much technical jargon that you need to have a dictionary beside you.
The photography industry is dying, and it's all because of that little device that has invaded our modern lives: the smartphone. The company Sharp released the first camera phone in Japan in 2000, not knowing that they would inspire a whole generation of change. Of course, these photos were low-resolution and of no real value. Through the early and mid 2000s, camera phones were used to capture quick snapshots of memories and moments, just for the sake of nostalgia. When one of the earliest of smartphones, the original iPhone, hit the shelves in 2007, it featured 2 megapixel camera with no flash or autofocus. (This is compared to the iPhone 7, which has a 12 megapixel camera with flash, autofocus, and a whole suite of features to improve your photos.) Camera phones were an absolute revolution — you could take photos whenever and wherever, so long as you had your phone.
Film. Not a word that you would see too often if you were a photographer back five or six years ago. Back then when the digital wave of cameras was still at an all time high, film was just somewhat of a smaller niche in photography.
So you want to learn about aperture? First off, we're gonna have to start with what part of the lens the "aperture" actually is. When you look into your lens past the layers of glass you'll be able to see several triangular almost ocean wave shaped pieces of metal that form a hole; these are called "blades." They move in and out to make the hole in the middle smaller or larger which in turn controls how much light is let into the camera.
Things certainly have changed over the past few years in the action camera market. A few years back there was GoPro and everything else was simply inferior. Sure you could get cheap GoPro knockoffs, but what you saved in money, you lost in quality and durability.
