Only problem is a true fine artist would not bother with all that.
that's what i was thinking,a lot of work for what?
Both the medium and equipment have withstood the test of time in both storage and use. Cannot say that for the "modern" equivalent as it changes every three months. That's why.
Doesn't this other post from the same guy, and the opinions he expresses therein, sort of contradict the whole project he wants to do in the above link?
No, it does not. He made a valid point as to how and why he uses film and how and why he also chooses to use a digital camera for a specific purpose. No crime committed there. Anybody else is doing the same thing wielding an iPhone or any other sort of smartphone — or digital camera per se.
My problem is that there is probably a bit of work and communication to be done for this guy for nothing much at all in particular other than to see one's philosophy on analogue photography committed to print for the world to see. In this modern digital age of online publishing, I don't really see the point. But credit to him for breaking out with the suggestion. :)
I don't see any contradiction, either. He makes it clear that he chooses film because it works for him.
I also don't understand why he should be criticized for his project. For a long time, there seemed to be a weekly/monthly thread about film's imminent death (although the biggest doomsayers have, thankfully, left). There have also been posts about how to get people (re)interested in using film, and profuse welcoming when a new member "sees the light". Here's someone who is trying to share, in a concise fashion, the reasons we choose analog. Kudos to him for attempting to articulate our passion for our chosen form of expression. I hope he's successful in this endeavor.
He's a member, here, although he hasn't posted in about 13 months. I don't doubt his motives, but think he should have posted his project here, to reach his target audience.
