The "New age" of Digital Photography: A blessing or a nightmare

September 01, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

With the evolution of digital photography from the days of mono-photography or "one  man one event." a term describing an instance where at events you had just the 
camera man [a photographer] showcase his talent and experience, turning  great moments into lifelong viewable memories, to the new era of  poly-photography where everyone; and by everyone I mean half the guests at your  event, are photographers. One is bound to wonder what this world is turning into{angry tone}
Nowadays  at functions you see gadgets of sorts, different shapes, sizes and forms, all  with the ability to take still images; and with some even edit & publish on  the spot with apps such as the almighty Instagram, and PS Express to mention but two. 
In  light of this allow me to express my frustration using the analogy that "the  fact one knows how to move a car, doesn't mean the same knows how to drive," to  send home my point. Its great to have these devices, and also fun to have more  than one photographer cover an event [the two head principle], but a lack of  coordination [two many cooks] could transform what was meant to be an awesome  arrangement into an organized mess. Never 
mind that it may bring some form of satisfaction to the individual  (unofficial/amateur) photographers that they get to capture their memories in a  way and manner thats pleasing to them but when you look at the big picture it 
causes a lot of chaos and burden to the "one" who is being paid to {insert  phrase} It almost becomes a competition between the one and the many and often  time  inhibits the "ones" ability to perform at maximum efficiency.....
