Less can say more At markets and similar types of location, all the activity can be overwhelming – and the temptation is often to try to record the entire busy, colourful scene. If you look, however, at your feet could be images showing much less but saying so much more. In Uzbekistan I noticed next to a fruit stall a lady who had nothing to sell but these few sad tulips.

Lens movement Some lenses may take a few seconds to zoom to their maximum or to retract to their minimum settings. Don’t be tempted to rush the action by pushing or pulling at the lens. 48 PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THE DIGITAL AGE Digital zooms The term given to a computer-generated increase in apparent focal length is “digital zoom”. Although the lens focal length does not increase, the image continues to be magnified. It works by taking a central portion of an image and enlarging it to fill the format, using a process called “interpolation” – extra pixels are added, based on the existing one, to pad out the space.

Often, it is better to look for a simple colour scheme as part of a clear compositional structure – too many subject elements can so easily lead to disjointed and chaotic pictures. Digital results Modern digital cameras are able to capture very vibrant colours that look compelling on your computer’s monitor screen. Because of the way the screen projects colour, these are, in fact, brighter and more saturated than those film can produce. However, one of the advantages of using computer technology is that the colour range offered by film can be enhanced by the application of image-manipulation software, giving you the opportunity, first to create, and then to exploit, an enormous range of vibrant colours.
