    Recently I was asked to come speak and show some prints to a panoramic photography class at my local Arts Center. Most of the work being done in the class was stitched digital files, and printed with ink jet. The teacher wanted me to come to give the class a little taste of how it's done with film. As they viewed my prints (gelatin silver on FB) there were lots of ooohhs and aaahhhs, and questions "Where can I get some of this paper? How do I get my BW panos to look like this?" The teacher and I both turned and pointed at the darkroom. Fortunately the local Arts Center still offers BW darkroom classes; I hope some of the students were inspired to sign up.

    Those big magnets would erase their memory cards.

    Down the street at Death-Ray High School they use all digital because the x-ray machines fog the film.

    We have a local camera store, Imageworks, that sells only film, darkroom supplies, and photo paper (no ink jet paper). Their business comes from selling to students in the various local colleges.

    We used to have one like that in Ogden, UT but he didn't quite keep up as the local college changed to digital stuff and reduced film photo classes for a while & now he is no more.

    My girlfriend and another model were out shooting with a photographer who had a digital SLR. I figured I'd tag along with my F3 and motodrive. I took a few shots and then turned to the photographer and said "want to see how it looks?" I turned my camera over and he approached to look at my supposed "LCD" at which point I was said "oops, I'm shooting film". Needless to say, he didn't appreciate my humor.

    By the way, his shots came out horrible. So flat and emotionless. Some people use digital very well, but most just set their cameras on auto and produce shots that any monkey could take (no offense to monkeys).

    Just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

    You could swap the word "film" for "digital" in that sentence and it would still be true.

    Personally I think the stuff between your ears matters far more than the stuff inside your camera. Maybe I'm just strange.
