    Just HOW ANALOG Are You?

    Just for curiosity, I am interested in seeing "how analog" APUGgers really are. I find myself mostly analog or hybrid at this point, and would go more towards totally analog if I had better access to a darkroom.

    Looking forward to seeing the poll results!

    I'm completing my color darkroom with a friend.

    When I shoot black and white, I'm completely analog except for the few digital pics that I decided look better in black and white.

    When I shoot color, I used to shoot all digital until I sold my digital camera to pay for an enlarger and assesories. Now my color workflow is hybrid. I shoot film and then scan it. I would do color developing and printing if I shot enough color film to justify buying the chemicals and if I had the patience to get the color balance right

    I'm totally hybrid.

    Don't have space to setup a wet darkroom, so my B&W home development is darkbag & daylight tanks. Color film is sent out. All the negs are scanned. I also own good digital rigs and use them but the balance of field shooting is at the moment in favor of film.

    I'm totally analog. Have never owned a digital camera in my life. I do scan my slides, mostly just for my records, but all black and white is printed in the darkroom. That being said, once I can afford a better printer, I'll probably be hybrid so I can make enlarged negatives to do alt. process work.

    You don't have all of the possibilities covered up there.

    I know one guy here who will shoot wet plate collodion, scan that in, print a digital negative, and then print that in gum bichromate over platinum/palladium.
    I know another guy who shoots digital 90% of the time, but does do some film now and again.

    I shoot digital for taking notes and exploring different angles, focal lengths, times of day, etc. in preparation for landscapes. Once I have something I like, I come back with my LF camera. At times I may not get the final result on LF until years after the initial digital picture.

    As Jeremy suggests, I don't find my methods on the list! I shoot probably 90% or more of my color stuff with electrocuted bits - partly economics, partly instant gratification, partly that the final destination is generally a d*git@l format. I shoot all my B&W with film. I print very little of any of my shots; mostly put them on the web. When I print B&W, its probably 90% wet darkroom, with an occasional inkjet print as a sort of "proof of concept." For color prints to Aunt Whatsername, it's likely inkjet, for color entries in an exhibition, it's likely sent off to get done on Crystal Archive or whatever. (C-prints are infrequent, as my exhibition entries have been about 85% B&W.)

    If you shoot only film, owning no digital camera, but you don't do your darkroom work then 99% chance that you're the hybrid type. It's almost impossible to have the lab printing your film in the analog way nowaday.

    I shoot digital in a few situations. When traveling, I have a couple of digital cameras handy. One with a long lens for wildlife. The other for situations where the LF cameras will not do well, like high winds, rain, etc.

    Other than those few situations it is large format film, mostly B&W. I find as time goes on, ther eis less color and less digital. Nothing really satisfies like LF.
