I recently came across this interesting video narrative (part of Intel Visual Life series) by blogger Scott Schumann, aka, The Sartorialist on his photography and how technology plays an important role. He made a very interesting point in the video about ‘Digital Park Bench’. Now with the help of technology you can actually observe people from New York City to New Delhi and from Hong Kong to Paris without physically being there.

Photography: Technology & Technique

Pushkar Sane Tuesday, 18th August, 2009 Tags: , , , , Life, Technology 2 comments

I’m getting a bit better at landscape photography. I have been posting some of my photos on Facebook and almost 1 out of 3 people commenting on the photographs ask me ‘Which Camera’. Makes me wonder whether people really understand the difference between Technique & Technology. Yes Technology is very important and it helps the photographers but in my opinion Technique is more important than the Technology. I have seen many people taking ordinary pictures with great cameras and good photographers taking great pictures with an ordinary camera.

Photography is all about identifying the subject, understanding shade & light, understanding environment and finally having patience to experiment. It is also about years of struggle in learning to shoot under different conditions. So technology is important but without Technique it can’t achieve its potential.

Here is a recent photograph of Hong Kong Harbour…
