    If you replace a DSLR with a different kind of camera does anything become easier Well in a word no At no time in any of those photos was the DSLR adding any complexity to the shot If anything the DSLR often made these shots easier I m not sure that any of them could have been duplicated on a camera phone or on a compact camera that didn t offer full control over shutter and aperture speed And several of those shots benefitted from being able to use lenses that you can t get on camera phones or compact cameras The complexity is inherent to photography as an art medium and is down to physics light and composition artistic taste All that the DSLR does is expose you to that complexity Nothing more Other Points In Favour Of DSLRs The DSLR platform brings some important advantages over other types of camera I ve already mentioned physics the gathering of light and the capture of light whilst controlling noise Indoors late at night or more northernly or southernly you go this becomes more and more important It s nearly always very dark indoors and by definition it s dark outside late at night No surprises there But if you live in Canada or the States you might not realise that it s much brighter outdoors there than it is here in Europe We re much further north than you are That makes it much harder to take good photos with smaller kit Phase detection auto focus systems are for me the next advantage of the DSLR platform This is an old technology but it works almost flawlessly And it s fast By contrast contrast based auto focus systems are slow inaccurate and struggle to track subjects well or work in low light I m sure that one day there ll be enough computing power in cameras to overcome these problems but right now they re very hit and miss systems I must not forget manual focus The ability to switch the motor off and dial in the focus entirely by hand is an important artistic tool when combined with manual aperture control Works best if you re lugging around a tripod more bulk Inter changeable lenses are important Other platforms notably micro four thirds also have inter changeable lenses but only the two leading DSLR platforms Nikon and Canon have an extensive range of lenses both from the manufacturer and from third parties such as Sigma And the quality of those lenses oh my I haven t mentioned flash photography as it isn t something I do But it s another area where the DSLR platform offers a major advantage over other camera types DSLRs are very versatile tools You can mix and match bodies and lenses to optimise for the kind of photography that you enjoy the most This is all good stuff but it isn t what prompted me to post in defence of the humble DSLR Final Thoughts I work in tech and it pays for my photography hobby Over the last few years there s been a steady rise of a culture that I wasn t aware of before Somehow it s become acceptable not to know what you re doing or how anything works Sometimes it s presented slightly differently that s there s far too much for anyone to know but the sentiment is the same We re moving from the days of the meta ignorant to an active cult of the ignorant As many of the people I follow on Twitter work in tech it is this culture spilling over into photography that I saw this afternoon And honestly I m deeply deeply uncomfortable with the notion It isn t a culture that I grok Because I don t understand it I don t want to call bullshit on it and I don t want to call people out who promote this culture I don t walk in their shoes and I don t see things through their eyes I don t know what the barriers are that are stopping you from learning the things that I have been able to learn The best I can do is offer to teach what I know So if there s enough interest I ll make the time to put together an easy step by step course to the humble DSLR and basic digital photography It ll be a group course run online and there will be plenty of homework involved Just let me know if this is something you want Be the first to leave a comment Why I m Switching From Aperture To Lightroom Posted by Stuart Herbert on September 1st 2012 in Opinion Post Production Yesterday was pay day and one of the first things that I did was to buy a licence for Adobe s Lightroom After many years and tens of thousands of photos I ve decided that I ve just had enough of Apple s Aperture If you don t have the time to read the full article my reasons can be summarised as Aperture has become far too slow to enjoy On the exact same hardware Lightroom is much quicker even with much larger files I m not happy any more with the colours that I m getting in photos after post processing with Aperture No such problems with Lightroom to date I m fed up to the back teeth of Aperture continuously crashing on me in recent weeks Aperture The Digital Processing Pioneer Apple s Aperture is one of the true pioneers of digital photography processing thanks to its introduction of non destructive editing and extensive tagging and metadata support from the very beginning I remember buying it at the same time that I bought my first MacBook Pro because there was nothing else remotely comparable to it Adobe had made Lightroom available as a free beta at the time in competition with Aperture but it would be
