DISADVANTAGES OF BECOMING A DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHER
If you have been a ‘film photographer’, the first and biggest disadvantage is the cost of new cameras, at least. If you are already computer literate, and have a good computer with some kind of imaging software, good. But if not…well, I sorry for you, eh! Add all that expense, too. And if you’ve been a medium format photographer as I was, you’re not only going to need new cameras, but new lenses, too! With computers and imaging software, even without printers, you have a large investment to look at Oahu photographers.
On the up side of that startup expense is all the money you’re now going to save by not having to buy film and pay for processing and proofs.
There is the time element that comes with a “digital workflow”. You, or someone is going to have to upload your images to your computer to edit. Then color correct, retouch, and anything else you want done to your images. And especially at first, it is quite time consuming as you follow your learning curve.
In my humble opinion, these are the only aspects of digital photography that can be called disadvantages. And then there’s the argument that “Digital has taken away business from professional photographers”.
