I love film, but I have to say, I’m in the digital camp. Digital has come to the point where it can be manipulated to look like film, but film can’t say the same for digital. That’s not to say that film doesn’t have it’s quirks and eccentricities that are great, and it does have that “old school” stigma that’s nice, but it’s just not as versatile as digital.
Me:It is true to an extent…but I’d say that sure, digital can be manipulated to look like film, but manipulating film is more work, but it is more hands-on. I mean, remember Diana’s prints on aluminum last year? And the fact you can expose images on anything if you have some liquid emulsion?
I don’t know, that’s just me. I think digital is a better choice for professional work nowadays, and film is better for hobby/artsy/fun type of photography.
Him:Why would one want to do more work? And as for the printing on anything, why not just do that when you want to, and do things simpler when you can? I would agree with you that film is better for artsy people, but for hobby, I would tend to disagree. With a digital camera, a hobbyist can do way more sooner than they would be able to with film. However, I can’t deny the idea that Film itself could be the hobby, rather than Photography itself.
I don’t think he gets it. :/
None of you have to listen to me whine about not being able to upload my film photos anymore, because I bit the bullet and bought the Canoscan 8800F.
Expect film photos in about two-three weeks.
It IS addicting! I watched the show with my dad all summer, and we both want to go SOOO badly! :D It’s a really fun game, I just wish it was real money.
