Getting to Know Your Camera – What’s There To Know?
Since cameras have become “digital cameras” they have also become computers.
On a base level, computers are information processing tools.
On a base level cameras are light recording tools. A photograph is nothing more than a recording of light.
Digital cameras not only record light, they can also add digital processes to that recording.
Digital processes aside, In terms of what there is to know to make a picture, we need to know what we do as photographers when we operate a camera (any camera, film or digital) to make a photograph and we need to know how our specific camera functions so we can operate our specific camera in a way that supports our specific work.
