We cannot say completely that traditional photography is different from modern photography, since both methods use the same laws and techniques. Lighting should be at its optimal exposure and angle, the focus of the lens towards the subject, keeping of the images’ shape and pattern, etc. Three specific technical problems are to be addressed in photography and these are: white balance, clarity, and visual effects.
White balance is simply the difference in the temperatures of the lighting that would either make the colors look warmer or cooler in hue and saturation. Warmer temperatures in contrast to the white balance will most likely create a reddish or sepia-like effect in the images. Although the images would most prefer to end up appearing greenish or bluish in color, at colder temperatures. For conventional photography it matters angle and the intensity of light. When you want to achieve a specific effect in the image, there is a specific angle, light and dark exposure and hue and saturation. But in modern photography, there is what we call auto balance or auto mode in all of the modern photography devices which is the best option for someone who is just starting to take on photography.
At the other hand the resolution covers the photo’s image and meaning. It is determined by points per inch, and the accuracy of the measurement depends on how high and low. When there are fewer dots per inch it has a low-quality resolution whereas there are more dots per inch in high-quality resolution. Why does this matter? This matter because if you want to have a clear and fine image in which you can zoom in to see more of the image details, then you should choose a high resolution for such images. In gadgets, the resolution of the image depends on how high the mega-pixel of your camera is. The greater the resolution of the camera’s megapixel quality, the better the captured image will be. If you are just trying to take pictures for web purposes then it will be appropriate to have a low megapixel resolution camera, but if you want to capture photographs to be reproduced on large images such as tarpaulins and posters then you would certainly need high resolution cameras.
Although digital effects add some beautification to the image, it is the least to be concerned of when taking a picture. Digital effects may be eliminating red eyes due to the use of light while taking the picture, or taking the image in a landscape or portrait or scenery. But digital effects are further expanded by sending the images to the computer and editing it using photo editing software. Photography is not a talent but an ability that needs to be fine-tuned. From time to time taking pictures will help you develop your skills.
