digARTal art is an artistic style of photography that uses digital technology (during and post exposure) as an essential part of the creative or presentation process. Since the 1990’s when it first became more popular, some photographer resisted the digital evolution and preferred to hang on to the analogue process. For me, I embraced this new technology as it allowed my creative process to develop in an exponential manner.
The impact of digital technology has transformed my activities such as infrared photography, mono and colour, post processing techniques, new exposure processes including bracketing, multiple exposure, HDR to name a few. My use of the term digARTal photographer is used to describe images that make use of digital technologies in the production of art. In an expanded sense, “digARTal” is contemporary photography that uses the methods including digital and analogue processes and presents these images in an artistic format.
