There is no real ‘best way’ when it comes to photography. Sure, there are things that work and things that don’t work, but a lot of that depends on the situation as well as the perspective. What does seem to be true, regardless of the situation is that a good mixture of technology and photography can make a good picture great. With the right technology, memorable photographs can be made.

Technology isn’t limited to the camera equipment you have either. Now, not only is a nice camera valuable to taking great photos; you also need some nice editing software and techniques.  A shadow can be made more bold, or it can be faded into the background. Photos once thought ruined can, for the most part, be salvaged to some level of usable degree.

One thing I worry about with all this technology when it comes to photography is whether it is too much or not. Complex pictures are nice, but a simple photo can be great. I worry that with all this new technology, simple pictures may get pushed to the wayside. Photographers trying to push themselves may over do it. Simple pictures may be overlooked to try a more complex picture, say of a sunset. While the sunset is very nice, there are hundreds of sunset pictures. A picture someone takes while hiking on the other hand can be both simple, and just as visually stunning as a sunset.
