    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.

    Photography and specializing in film is probably one of the most normal things about me.

    Look at it this way instead---"still" also suggests that something never changed from its original state.

    I'm still male.
    I'm still aging.
    I still dream of marrying Charlize Theron.
    I still use modern technology to post/discuss pictures I have taken on old-fashioned formats.

    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

    ISSF, good work and keep it up. I have noticed there are a few blogs like yours committed to the use of film popping up. Its good to see and an encouraging way to promote shooting film

    Cheers

    PS - don't be a stranger - hate for you to be a 1 post wonder, with the only thing you do on this forum is promoting your blog!
    Thank you Hoffy. Attitudes like you are responding too have made this place antogonistic and exude a level of arrogance people do not want to deal with.

    I also appreciate your PS.

    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.

    Wonderful blog OP!

    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.

    I know, those are Tumblr's terms of service... unfortunately part of using the platform.
