    As to the choice of photographers who use "like" as a comma and "awesome" for just about any other adjective, think of who this video is aimed at. Old farts like me don't need to be sold on film.

    I believe Gregory Crewdson shoots 8x10 colour film but then the shots are higly manipulated. Gursky works in a similary fashion.

    Ah, that might be the case. Certainly for some work - maybe advertising- I've seen a video of him using a digital back.

    Have conflicting feelings about Crewdson, but find myself coming back to his pictures nevertheless.

    It's a nice enough video but conceptually shallow. If they'd had me on the production team I would have insisted the challenge is not merely about film or the "look". More is a stake.

    Film is a common option in photography but not really at the heart of things. Hey, some people expose paper in a camera. Others do wet-plate. The unique and decisive thing about photography is the making of pictures out of light sensitive materials. Platinotypes, ambrotypes, gelatin-silver pictures...the list goes on... are just as much part of photography as exposing film. Without this insistence we may end up with people taking digital pictures of photographs (by camera or scanner) and displaying the re-calculated digital results as photographs. That's a deceit I won't buy if I'm going to stand up for photography.

    As for the "look", what happens when electronic picture making can replicate exactly the appearance (just the appearance not the substance) of a photograph? Do I abandon photography and it's special physical and causal relationship to subject matter? No way! I'm not going to buy "looks like means same as" and go through life as an eternal patsy.
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.

    Maris, how do you feel about the hybrid list above your post? Dinesh informs they are digital photographers.

    Incorrect. I said that they have used a hybrid process.

    Then don't quote hybrid, I want to know your list of great digital photographers.

    Most who shoot film now are already doing this? But agree with the sentiment. 'A picture of a photograph' is a bit daft, or at least sounds daft.

    But worse, and I can imagine this happening in the not to distant future, is Health and Safety™ taking hold. Chemicals... hazardous, hazardous chemicals. I remember my sister licking a family photograph when she was a toddler and my parents panicking, not about the germs from hundreds of fingerprints, but about 'the chemicals'.

    When you think about it, you could more easily 'take your eye out' with the edge of a printed picture. Surprised I haven't done it myself in fact...
