If Art is painting with colors, then Photography is painting with light. Its amazing if we think back on photographs when the technology started and how important light was. The position of the sun and a point source what could be done in terms light and shadow; and also the limitations of the technology. I mean, we are talking about large format 5″ x 7″ cameras with bellows and a dark fabric over the rangefinder. If we were to think of those cameras in today’s terms it would be the equivalent of a long exposure image more than 20 sec or so. That’s why most family portraits in the umpteenth hundreds the people seated had, either, some kind of head rest or concealed head support. Thankfully I’m shooting with a Nikon D-90 with a CMOS sensor, 23.6 x 15.8 mm (Cropped chip from the full 24 X 36mm) with a 18 – 105 VR Lens. I Shoot RAW and I work in CameraRAW, Lightroom, Bridge and a slew of Adobe programs. I also use Adobe CC. Awesome!
