What part should technology play in helping the photographer create the perfect image?
Who's really taking the photo?
How much help is too much help in creating the perfect photo?
Is all technology considered equal?
Join us for our annual Cambridge Darkroom debate where we'd like to discuss what role technology plays in our photography.
Not a month seems to go by without some new advancement in camera, lens or software technology. But in this ever-advancing technology roller coaster, where does it leave the humble photographer? Should we embrace all that there is to offer, or resist the lure and aim for purity?
For example, are advancements in lens quality ok, but image stabilisation features not okay? Is a better quality sensor that captures less noise any different to reducing noise during post processing? Is software inside the camera somehow ok, yet Photoshop a taboo?
Let's see if we can kick off the new year with an enthusiastic debate on the technology we use in our photography. We'll have some panellists with their own take on the subject, but audience participation is very much encouraged.
And from all of the Cambridge Darkroom team, we hope you had an enjoyable Christmas break and a very happy new year.
Lina, Tom, Dom & Marine
