Photography in Collage
Original photography is a great collage resource, especially with adigital camera. Need an image? Shoot it and soon you can have an archival image to collage.
What works for me is a very small point & shoot digital camera that I carry with me all the time. I have used a variety of Sony point & shoots, which I have been very happy with. I am currently using a W300. It goes in a small pouch on my belt or in a sport coat pocket.
My digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera is a Nikon D300 DSLR and a full compliment of Nikon lenses from 14 to 400 mm. I always shoot RAW.
The advantage of digital is you can shoot lots of images and get fast turnaround. It encourages experimentation! To get the most of of a digital camera you need a computer, image editing software and a printer.
The other key to digital imaging is the computer and software, see the computer page.
I miss my 4x5's and 6x7's, but film is dead. In 2009 they took my Kodachrome away! Film is dead. Long live film.
