Electro chemistry.

Re: Has the phone killed photography?

I'm tempted to think that the ice ages in the northern hemisphere killed off fungi, allowing the forests to form coal, then returned when conditions warmed up. Man has also been much more active and numerous in the northern hemisphere - still is, probably, and man's activities always impact on ecosystems.

The majority of their first year work was B&W using large format cameras. Some medium format cameras were available (Hasselblads) but students were also allowed to use their own medium format cameras. I don't think the Uni has any 35 mm cameras of its own.

They moved on to colour photography and (wet) colour printing in their second year although much less time was spent on this than B&W previously. The students didn't really regress to digital until later in their second year although I think they were doing quite a lot in Photoshop from their first year onwards.

Re: Has the phone killed photography?

What does your son hope to do with his degree in photography? I'm guessing here, but jobs could be hard to find.

That's what I am saying. The panorama assist was available in the EM1mk1 but removed from the Em1ii. Not that I use it.

Lovely panorama. Not easy to do a 180 deg without any error. If you go fine tooth pixel peeping into most, you will find errors. (which I did)

Surprisingly not. You would think that modern cameras would render professional photographers obsolete, but the reverse is true as businesses in particular, but also charities see the value of high quality images - which must be better than the competition.

So to answer your question our son has already found quite a bit of work, and is finding more opportunities as time goes on. He also continues to play the organ in a professional role (he studied organ at the RNCM before moving to photography). Funerals in particular pay very well!

He also has an interest in audio and video recording and I think will do more of that in the future.

Weddings and photographers - just a thought, maybe an opening for funerals and the photographic record.

Oh, did I show you uncle Jacks funeral pics, lovely wreath! Look at Auntie lil's face! A picture!!

You'd need a camera that handles blacks as true blacks.

For weddings - my daughter recently tied the knot - the photographer offered something called the photobooth or a shoot of the engagement (staged after the event, of course) as part of the package.

Will funeral photographers offer Uncle Jack's last cough in ward 10 as part of the package. One has to have the all important USP!

Even better if they can mock up a last selfie?

You'd need a camera that handles tue whites. And greens if there's a delay.

What, you mean, something along the lines of, "My coffin is the best there has ever been, and my funeral procession the biggest ever! Reports saying that i kept God waiting are just FAKE NEWS!"
