and Sorting Your Images Using a Rating System: Stars and Rejects
by George Schaub
Once you’ve shot your pictures and begun the process of downloading,
naming, storing and backing up, there are many junctures at which you
can make critical decisions about what to keep, and what to toss away.
Yes, it’s difficult to throw away any image, but given that digital
tends to encourage overshooting it’s important to make some decisions
about similars, bracketed shots and especially those that are beyond the
reach of Photoshop. Some of these discards are obvious, and when you open
your images right after downloading in your browser you know what’s
got to go. But others are borderline, and experience shows that some images
that might have been thrown away later turn out to be your favorite.
Digital SLR Sales are Booming
industries that thrive on innovation, the business of photography tends
to be cyclical as new technologies are unveiled, refined, introduced at
the high end of the market, and eventually made available to the mass
consumer. And right now the photo industry is on an upswing thanks to
booming sales of entry-level digital SLRs at prices that were unthinkable
just three years ago. This development has also generated considerable
interest in the myriad of related accessories like lenses, memory cards,
storage devices, photo printers and other digital imaging gear.

kit is composed of two flash heads (monoblocs), two heavy-duty 9-foot
stands, two umbrella reflectors, two umbrellas, all cords, bulbs,
and cables, as well as a strong duffle bag-like carrying case. The
optional Travel-Pak battery was also utilized. The supplied stands
come with an “L” bracket that allows you to mount the
heads in vertical or horizontal positions. Once mounted you can choose
from either AC or battery power; be sure to set the appropriate switch
on the back and avoid connecting both at the same time. Once you do,
the green “go” light comes on quickly and you’re
ready to shoot.
More and more colleges and photo schools are dropping their darkroom classes, and some have even stopped teaching photography using film. Do you think that learning about photography via film, and darkroom work, is essential, or should schools just head right for digital right now?
Please comment briefly on how you think photography is best taught.
