Ask A Question


I have used SLR cameras for 30 years and have taught classes on photography at work for my co-workers. I had a darkroom for 20 years, but now am using mostly digital cameras. I can answer questions on equipment and techniques for photography, but am not an expert on specific model numbers of cameras or accessories.

What do you like about this subject?

Taking photos.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I would like to help others get started and learn about the fun of photography.

2013-08-03 Cell phone cameras & Digital cameras:

Older digital cameras had much lower resolution (i.e. number of pixels).  On newer cameras, you can select several levels of resolution.  Highest resolution requires the most memory space per photo.
