Toronto. The trend from the beginning of photography in 1839 was improved simplicity and accuracy. Today, with the era of digital photography, the making of a photograph is simplicity beyond belief: Focus, exposure, light balance, speed, and aperture are set automatically on the fly. Images appear on the camera back instantaneously. Shaky? Blurry? Poorly framed? Shoot again!
No need to print – send to friends by email or internet. Just store it on a computer and for the truly old fashioned, a few quick presses of computer keys (and a few seconds), then the computer’s inkjet printer shoots out a copy – even on a print-like 4×6 inch piece of glossy or matt paper if you so choose.
The above image was taken by me back in 2012 with a Sony digital camera. The subject was my baby granddaughter being immunized in her doctor’s office. A Kodak moment indeed!
