As an art form, photography has evolved over the years and will continue to evolve as time goes on. One of the biggest changes was the invention of the digital camera. While digital cameras have made a number of things much easier for photographers, such as autofocus and overall convenience, traditional photography still has a variety of advantages over its digital counterpart.

Traditional photography, referring to images that are produced from film, only contains the information that was captured using the aperture of the camera. Because of this, it’s much harder to manipulate images that are shot in the traditional format, which is why traditional photography images are required for uses like passport photos.
