DID YOU KNOW

Thanks to Kodak, the first digital camera was introduced to the world in 1973. It is not uncommon for a digital photography buff that Kodak has truly made a hallmark in the development of film cameras. Actually, more than a hallmark, it gave birth to the first digital camera through an engineer named Steve Sasson. Over the years, cameras have undergone drastic and significant changes from the use of film cartridge to the digital restoration of images, and today, the easy access to owning a DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera made it possible for everyone to become a photography buff with the aid of photo-editing software. Alongside the growing popularity of DSLRs is the ever-changing photography trends. According to a featured article published on the website of Canon, 2017 was the year of symmetrical photos and vibrant architectural shots and this year, 2018, a good technique of experimenting on surrealist touch and atmospheric touch is among the photography trends. Moreover, the famous hashtag ‘no filter’ is taking over the social media channels, especially photo and video sharing applications, emphasizing the rawness and pure beauty of the subject. Say bye to minimalistic and monochromatic photos and say hello to photos filled with playful colors as another interesting trend is yet to come--heavy post-processing.
