We cannot say completely that traditional photography is different from modern photography, since both methods use the same laws and techniques. Lighting should be the focus of the lens towards the subject, maintaining the form and pattern of the images, etc. at its optimum exposure and angle. Three basic knowledge issues are to be implemented in photography and these are: white balance, resolution, and digital effect.
White balance is essentially the difference in the lighting temperatures which will either make the colors appear warmer or colder in hue and saturation. Warmer temperatures in contrast to the white balance will most likely produce a reddish or sepia-like appearance in the images. While in cooler temperatures, the photographs would most like end up looking greenish or bluish in color. For conventional photography it matters angle and the intensity of light. There is a specific angle, light and dark exposure, and hue and saturation if you want to achieve a specific effect in the image. But in modern photography, in all modern photography tools there is what we call auto balance or auto mode which is the best choice for anyone who is just starting to take photography.
Resolution on the other hand, encompasses the quality and definition of the photo. 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, the resolution is low-quality while the high-quality version has more dots per inch. 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. For gadgets the image resolution depends on how small the camera’s mega-pixel is. The higher the camera’s mega-pixel resolution, the better your captured images will be, and clearer. When 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 printed on large images such as tarpaulins and posters then you would certainly need high-resolution camera.
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. Yet visual effects are further extended by using photo editing software to send the images to the machine and edit them. Photography is not a talent but an ability that needs to be perfected. From time to time taking pictures will help you develop your skills.
