Transferring Skills

Whether you acquired your photographic skills working with film cameras, or entirely from shooting digital pictures, they can be transferred to Photoshop in a variety of ways, as befits the multifaceted nature of photography itself. Photography has always been part art, part craft, and part technology. Some of the earliest photographers were originally trained as artists, and used their cameras to produce landscapes, portraits, and other works from a classical artistic perspective.

Modest skills as an artisan were also helpful, for many of the earliest cameras were hand built by the photographers themselves. Even as mass produced cameras became available, photographers continued to craft their own custom-built devices and accessories. Today, you’ll still find that some of the coolest gadgets for photography are home-brewed contraptions. (You’ll find a few of them as special projects in my book Mastering Digital Photography, from Muska & Lipman.)
