Digitization and technological advancement have made things a lot easier for us. Things have gotten a lot more comfortable, quicker and more convenient in every aspect of our lives. Now, one of the biggest downfalls of technological advancement is that it has made us lazy. For the sake of this article, we will be focusing solely on the photography aspect of it.
Digital cameras today can help a novice take a few semi-decent and even professional shots after a first few takes. This is because the camera literally does everything for us. The camera lens will automatically adjust itself according to the light, balance out the level of exposure, and even help set gridlines so that you do not have to tinker with getting the right angle in your shot either. All of this has done nothing but lead to quick photos and very lazy photographers.
This is why it is important for every person who is actually considering a career in professional photography to start off from the basics, and that is to start with analog cameras and film photography before they can move onto digital photography. This is because analog and film photography requires that you put in a lot of work and preparation from your own end before you make your decision. This means that you have to manually adjust your lens and work on your focus and exposure, you find the right angle, and you have to make sure that you get the best possible shots you have because you will only have a limited film to work with. So, by mastering film and analog photography, your work on digital camera will automatically come out better as well because you will still try to adjust the camera yourself as opposed to letting the camera do all of the work for you.
