I was going to say something along those lines but you beat me to it.
I avoid saying the phrase, to my wife, "I still love you," because the word "still" implies that I might have stopped loving her at some point in time. I love my wife. I don't need to prove it by using affirmatives.
Using the phrase, "I still shoot film," has the same implication. I shoot photographs. I just happen to use film to do it.
Awww, C'mon. You know we're a bunch of weirdos here. Sad as it may be, we do need to justify our fetish for film.
“You seek escape from pain. We seek the achievement of happiness. You exist for the sake of avoiding punishment. We exist for the sake of earning rewards. Threats will not make us function; fear is not our incentive. It is not death that we wish to avoid, but life that we wish to live.” - John Galt
Glad to see some of you are interested in participating!
The name comes from the fact that when I started the blog almost 6 years ago, it was all my own photography. Over time it's evolved into an awesome community of film lovers. I hope that whether you like the name or not, the content will inspire you to shoot more film
I understand some people's concern on the name and their reasons but many young people getting into photography the last few years, and with the barrage of marketing of new "miracle" digicams and the now now now hype around photography I think the title is quite appropriate.
"Well, my photos are actually much better than they look..."
Hoffy - If I ever make it to AU, I'd love to buy you a beer! Thanks for sticking up for folks. People like you who stand up are to be commended.
To the Debbie-Downers who feel the need to knock the OP's blog title/rationale/etc.....please go to Blogger and start your own blog. I am sure your blog "Photography" or "I love Photography" will sure stand out amongst all the rest with a nice sterile name.
