I hate when people assume.
Just because I choose not to use digital, it doesn't mean that I can't shoot digital. I hate it when people make that assumption!
I just don't WANT to use digital cameras but, if you get right down to the nitty gritty, I can make better digital pictures than they can.
I can do it with my 10 year old, 2 megapixel, dinged-up, dirty and partially busted point and shoot, pocket digicam, too!
Most people don't believe it until I pull out some old digital photos that I took and show them. I do other digital art, too.
I use Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Final Cut Pro, GIMP and I use Blender to make 3-D art like Pixar.
A local fire department needed a new insignia for their uniforms so I designed one for them. The firefighters wear the patch that I designed on their uniforms, today.
I have a patch in my portfolio book, right next to a full-page printout of the logo, printed from Adobe Illustrator.
I design logos and banners for peoples' websites and they pay me for it. I have copies of all those images, too.
I shoot and edit digital video and I make broadcast quality television advertisements, some of which have been shown on local TV.
My computer has a faster processor, more memory and better screens (two of them) than 90% of the people I know.
I LIKE digital multimedia. I LIKE computers and I use them all the time, virtually every day.
But it really p*sses me off when people think I can't do digital photography just because I choose to shoot film!
