The Evolution Of Photography


Everything moves and shifts with the slow march of time until not much of the past normals are left to be sifted from the sands of the new.

There’s no question that tech has made us much more portable than we ever were. The equipment itself is far more sophisticated and capable — we can see what we are shooting in real-time; we can fine-tune everything to whatever our needs are. We are now able to transmit our pictures from anywhere we can get an internet connection. 

When I started, everything was dependent on processed film, which meant having to bring film, a darkroom kit including enlarging and print-making equipment, and a transmitter (very much like a souped-up fax machine). We’d have to find or at least arrange for a telephone line and telephone access when we needed to send our images. The phone lines were all analogue, and each picture took around 10 minutes to send — if the line was interrupted for any reason, we’d have to start over. If we got out 10 images in a day, that was huge.

Photographers now can send wide arrays of photos multiple times during a day. The upside of all of this is more time on the scene providing coverage and more choices sent.  The smartphone has killed the lower-end camera market, and if it hasn’t killed the mid-range market, it’s sure breathing down its neck. Everyone has a camera with them now at all times, and there's no doubt that we're seeing images that we never before could have contemplated. As we all know, it’s not just still images but also video.

I think it’s the ultimate democratization of photography — anyone at any time from anywhere can produce images that can affect how we think of the world around us. I feel that the common misconception in the debate is that photography has a set value for everyone. I always try to see it in the same way as food shopping. Some of us love to eat, we love to cook, we love to discover new restaurants. 

We spend a disproportionate amount of our income at local farmers' markets, high-end supermarkets, and new openings. It matters to us and it’s something we want to invest in. Others want to spend their money on cars or clothes. That’s fine: they won’t be spending $200 on dinner, because they see no value in it. Photography is very much the same. If a client perceives the value of the event photography to be $100, then they are going to spend $100; a client looking for a $1200 photography delivery is not going to book a $100 photographer.

With each advance in the cellphone market, I wonder what the long-term prognosis is for the high-end cameras. The next evolutionary phase of photography might not be a progression in the way we make images. Instead, it’s quite possible the next unseen horizon will come from the way we share those images with the world or how we store them for ourselves. If a photograph indeed captures a memory, what use is that memory unless it can more tangibly be recalled. Looking back in the history of photography has each subsequent advancement not strived to make the photo more qualitative, more lasting, and more real?

The power of "all in"

 

Professional photographer Milton Taylor's longstanding involvement in the Saskatoon business community has served as a natural channel for his many volunteer pursuits. He spearheaded this vegetable garden project which is managed by the Food Bank.

Maybe he won't hang from a tree to get a photo (he'll do the next best thing) but professional photographer Milton Taylor is willing to get 'down and dirty' to spearhead a vegetable garden project for the Food Bank. It's part of his longstanding volunteer philosophy, otherwise known as a lifestyle.

"I've done a lot of volunteering in the past, Kinsmen, K40, that kind of thing. But I've gotten into volunteering moreso in the last few years because the community has been good to me, they come to my door and have their pictures taken, so I like to give back," he says. Imagery, Taylor's photography business, was established 37 years ago, and these days, focuses primarily on commercial style work, as well as a range of portraiture, including large family groups.

Being in business in Saskatoon over many years has led to numerous volunteering opportunities. "If you've been steeped in the business culture and you're observant, you do those things, it just comes natural to you," he says.

Taylor was the instigator of "100 People 100 Reasons" when Saskatoon turned a hundred. He's in his third year on the board of the Saskatoon Golf & Country Club where he oversees two committees. He's been a Jazz Festival volunteer for 15 years, serves on the board of the NSBA (North Saskatoon Business Association) and with the Club Connect committee. He just completed a couple of two-year stints with the Tourism Board. 

Taylor's general approach seems to be "all-in" no matter what he does. But some opportunities tug at the heart strings in a special way. Like Care and Share, an organization that seeks to ensure all children have the same opportunities. It serves 17 inner-city community schools, addressing their wish lists of goods, services and programs that would best fulfill the students' needs.

Taylor has been on the board of Care and Share Saskatoon for about 12 years. "We have a dignity fund and each school is allotted so much money and the coordinator can take it and buy underwear or rubber boots or a swim suit if they go to swimming classes," he says. In many cases the children don't have these kinds of necessities.

"Many things in life will catch your eye, few catch your heart - pursue those," quotes Taylor, who is so committed to Care and Share he says they'll have to throw him off the board, because he's not leaving anytime soon. Everybody deserves a chance and Milton believes education is the key to the answer. "If we can have a generation of kids who stay in school, learn to be productive, and have positive role models, then we may have to close down a jail or two. That's wishful thinking but you've got to shoot for something," says Taylor.

The Food Bank vegetable garden on Third Avenue is another project that Taylor spearheaded. "I saw the toboggan at the top of the hill and I gave it a shove and got her rolling." The plot is in view from his current business location on the corner of 3rd Ave and Duchess Street. After getting permission from the mayor, some aging housing was removed, the plot was levelled and potatoes were grown the first year. When blight set in, the crop changed. "Last year they planted a lot of corn and squash and root vegetables and things like that, and harvested 19,500 pounds of produce from the three acre plot," says Taylor, who volunteers by going and picking things when they need it.

Taylor and Kearny Korchinski were asked by the Chamber to help form a new Junior Chamber of Commerce and we helped form a club which is now known as SYPE (Saskatchewan Young Professionals and Entrepreneurs).

Professionally, Taylor has served on the provincial and national boards of the PPOC (Professional Photographers of Canada) as president and in other capacities. He's also done speaking, competition judging and mentoring for various groups and individuals.

"There's people in our society that are stuck between a rock and a hard place, and dignity is important. Helping them to help themselves or giving them a chance to move forward, helping them get into society a little more and be their own person, don't we want that for people?" asks Taylor.

Trusted Saskatoon Photography Expert shares a trusted tip on Photography on your Wedding Day

 

Trusted Saskatoon shares some tips on Your Wedding Day: 

Your Wedding Day:

Indeed, it’s an exciting time, and there is a lot to do when you are in the midst of planning your wedding. I have been asked a number of questions regarding the wedding photography part of your day and so I want to answer those questions here and hopefully give you some good ideas to help you move forward with your planning.

How far in advance should we be booking our wedding day photographer? There is no right or wrong answer to this....however “the sooner the better” seems to be the best answer. Especially if you know who you want to hire to capture your day. The sooner you can secure your wedding day photography, the better, and it’s off your list ofthings to do. Even if you haven’t finalized your dates quite yet, it would be wise to contact your photographer and start the conversation, or start your search for one and get that finalized as soon as possible.

What are we going to plan for our wedding day photos? Before the Wedding Day I have already had a number of conversations with my bride and groom about what they want for their wedding day photography. If my bride & groom are uncertain about how they envision their wedding day imagery to look like then we spend some time talking about what’s important to them so that we come up with our photographic plan for the day. We want to have a photographic plan in place so we can move through their day with minimal uncertainty and stress. And we always discuss some of ‘plan B’ in case it’s required at any time. There will always be a few surprises during the day and it’s best to have considered a few alternatives given a few different situations....we want things to move along as smoothly and stress-free as possible. And planning and being prepared manages most of this. 

 

Do today’s couples usually have an Engagement Session?

Most often an Engagement Session is part of our time working together, and this is a great opportunity for us to get to know each other better and learn about each other photographical.....so that come the wedding day we are already familiar with each other and you can relax, trust and enjoy the days events without being concerned about the camera so much. It’s a great precursor to the wedding day! (PLUS this gives you the opportunity to create an Interactive Guest Book with your engagement images to be used at the wedding.....and then you have an engagement album and a wedding guest book all-in-one to enjoy forever).

 

How long after the wedding day can we expect to view our images?

About two weeks after your Wedding Day we meet so you can view your Wedding Day images, and discuss your Wedding Album design. Here we will also consider images that would make gorgeous wall prints, and wonderful gift prints for family or friends. We can also look at creating custom designed Thank You cards for your guests using your favorite wedding day image. Anything is possible!

 

 

 

Is a Wedding Album something we should consider?

I say yes! I don’t know where all these digital files are going to be in 50 years from now, but I do know that a well crafted, archival quality, wedding album will exist for generations. We use one of the most highly regarded Wedding Album companies in the world to design your Wedding album. These albums are beautiful to the eye, meticulously crafted, and hand made in Italy. With many options for album covers and layout design, we will be able to tell your wedding day story perfectly. And with all albums, the digital files are also included - so the best of both worlds! 

 

 

 

Your Wedding Day can not be re-created. It is important to trust the documenting of that day to a professional photographer with a style of imagery you love, and someone you will appreciate working with, and vice versa. Enjoy your wedding day! Wishing you much love and happiness, for always!

Trusted Saskatoon Photography Expert Shares Some Tips on Family Photos

 

I look horrible, don’t take my photo! | Saskatoon Family Photography:

 

Most of us, primarily us mom's I suspect, have all said it before or something close to it as an objection to getting into the photo. Guess what? Our kids and family members don’t care what we look like. They see and love us for who we are, not what we look like. We don't need to be perfect. And if you are waiting for everything to be perfect enough it may never happen.....and it is very important that you are in the family photos. So, this spring and summer when among family and friends, stop fretting about what you look like, put a smile on, feel the love in your heart (which will make you look amazing) and get in that photo! When you look back at family images later you will be happy that you did. (and If you need to hire a professional photographer to come on over and capture some of your family love!)
