- Keibr 13:44, 14 March 2008 (UTC) Hmm.. Student or teacher - It's hard to say! I started my working life at Kodak and during those six years I developed a real interest for photography. Then I moved on to other things and the interest was less intense, at least partly due to lack of money! Many years later along came digital photography and suddenly that old interest wakened again. I still have an awful lot to learn but I have taught digital beginners, and anyway good teachers are life-long learners!
--Toddmclosson 13:35, 13 July 2011 (UTC)I graduated from the University of Alaska Digital Art degree in 2007. I have owned and operated a portrait studio since graduation and currently teach community based beginning photography in Spring, Texas. I will forever be a student to the art of Photography, however I consider myself a resource person for beginners and a colleague to beginning professionals. I do consider portraits and photographic critique to be my strong points.
- Sidon 22:59, 2 February 2008 (UTC) I can instruct and offer instruction in digital photography, digital work flow, and software associated with the art/science of photography.
- Severoon 11:03, 19 January 2008 (UTC) I feel I could provide guidance on various aspects of photography, including most technical aspects of the digital 35mm SLR camera as well as fundamentals of composition, color, and other basics on the artistic side of photography. I can also contribute in the area of digital workflow management, including coverage of the ethics and methods of post-processing in Photoshop (up to the intermediate level), basic color management, and basic printmaking. I believe that film can be a compelling medium for working photographers and artists—however, I feel strongly that those learning photography are better off using digital for the following reasons:
- immediate feedback allows for quick correction and technique adjustment
- photos are automatically annotated with EXIF data (aperture, shutter speed, ISO, etc), freeing the student from manually recording details associated with each image for later review
- more flexible—shooting film requires understanding characteristics of the particular film type, can only change ISO of film when changing rolls.
- digital allows the student to take many more pictures without increasing cost
- digital allows the student to post-process many more pictures without increasing cost
- digital allows selective printing, meaning that physical resources and associated costs are only incurred for specific images
- no chemicals involved in image processing, so digital is better for the environment
- though film is a perfectly valid medium for working photographers, digital is more relevant to the vast majority of students
