Sample text

To make a version of the image the computer can use, the tones need to be converted to a digital form. The process involves sampling the image at regular intervals and assigning a specific color and brightness to each sample. Each of these areas, or samples, becomes a pixel in the resultant digital file, and in this way the pixel grid is constructed. The grid can be made by taking pictures with a digital camera or by using a scanner to convert existing prints or negatives into pixel-based form.

It is possible to have color prints made off 35 mm slides, but (as with the purchase and processing of the film itself) this is more expensive than making the same prints from color negatives. You must be more accurate with exposure when shooting slides and, where necessary, have a filter to correct the lighting (see page 134). Film information The film box gives you all the important information. Apart from type, brand and size, it shows the number of pictures, film speed, type and the ‘use by’ date.

Beginners’ cameras New, or young, photographers often start with a low-cost compact camera – maybe a disposable type, or one which you can reload with film. Disposable or ‘single use’ basic cameras come with film already loaded and sealed in. After shooting the last picture, you hand the camera in to the photo-lab, where it is broken open and the film processed. The cost of a disposable camera is only about twice the cost of a film, so it can be treated as a fun camera on the beach or even in the rain.
