I’m a Believer

June 23, 2010

I’m a believer in the power of digital photography. Actually, I have been for some time now.

For me, the biggest benefit from digital is the ability to make adjustments on the fly in order to capture an image that would be impossible with film.

An empty rock train creeps westward at West Junction on Jan. 10, 2008

This picture of a slowly moving train was shot hand-held at 6:43 PM, a good hour after sunset. Without getting into the technical aspects, suffice it to say that this image can’t be done with film.

There’s a bit of noise in the image, but nothing that can’t be cleaned up with a few key-strokes.

There is a steeper learning curve with digital than with film, but it’s been worth it.
