Hardware and Software Used In Photography

 

We use both hardware and software in photography

To start, if we’re using a digital camera, we use both hardware and software when working as photographers. 
On the other hand, when working with film, our use of software may not be as prevalent, but, on some level, the software is still used. Especially if you’re taking your prints to a lab for processing and printing.

The Hardware

When it comes to the hardware that we use.
Specifically, we use cameras, lenses, flashes, tripods, computers, hard drives, etc.
However, we use our camera equipment and computer hardware as extensions of our bodies.
And I think of our bodies as hardware also.
Additionally, when it comes to our bodies, we use our eyes, hands, legs, brain, etc.
Also, just as we need to maintain and take care of our camera equipment, we need to maintain and take care of our bodies.
After all, if our bodies aren’t well then we more than likely won’t be up for making photographs.

The Software

When it comes to the software that we use.
Not only is there software such a Photoshop and Lightroom, but our cameras also have software built into the cameras.
While some of the software in our camera allows for basic processing in order to create the image on a base level (the camera operating system), there’s also additional software in the camera that allows for editing/enhancement of the images.
And I also consider our mind/brain as software.
So, I think that our brain/mind is being used as both hardware and software.
Because just as we use our camera equipment and computer hardware as extensions of our bodies, we use the software as an extension of our mind/brain.

What’s Most Important When it Comes to the Hardware and Software Used In Photography?

In short, everything is important because everything works together.
However, without someone to work a camera, there’s no photography.
And, with that being said.
I think that the most important hardware is our body.
I think that the most important software is our mind.
