Digital and Film Photography Similarities and Differences

The basic photographic principles relating to apertures, depth of field, shutter speeds, and metering, etc., are essentially the same as film-based photography when you're working with professional digital SLR cameras.

This means that photographers beginning to make the transition to digital imaging don't have to relearn what they already know about basic photography and that's reassuring. But, as we will see, the fact that these basic photographic principles are being applied to digital media has real consequences when it comes to effective exposure and contrast control techniques.

To better understand how the two approaches compare, let's begin with an overview of the digital and film-based photographic processes.
