When the forum began in 2005, digital imagery was in its earlier stages, in transition from slides to digital cameras in my case. I started with a digital Nikon CoolPix 4500 camera. It was a great leap forward for me. With slides, I would shoot the rolls of film with an array of settings per piece, then drive an hour to the metro area (I live an hour away from Minneapolis & St. Paul, MN) wait the three hours for same day processing at extra $$ to collect the slides. Often a reshoot was necessary. This was a great waste of time, but it was what I had to work with. I loved that little 4500, with the twisting body and lens assembly. First selfie camera perhaps? Immediate results so lighting tweaks were timely and better images followed. For the past few years I have been using a smartphone to do the photography of my work. I find myself wondering what others are using these days to produce the best shots of their work, to produce images for the web, or for print publication. What do you use for processing the images? I find that sometimes the images are not in need of processing, but they usually do need something done to them. There are a variety of questions I have in addition to the above: lighting choices; tripod vs handheld; image processing software, etc. Join in and make this an educational discussion. Janel
