    I have never encountered this misconception you speak of. I don't think such a thing exists.

    Unfortunately it does exist, I've run into it a couple times when out with my MF and LF gear.

    My point is that in fact using film or paper negatives it's actually not that common to get all those artefacts/faults very often, so there's a high degree of dliberate intent in the images. So what I'm really questioning why when there's a direct comparison with Digital images, I'd guess it's purely commercial.

    And to answer Klainmeister - I would say the same to the photographer face to face, I've done so before & I'll do it again. It's the context the images are used in rather than the images themselves.

    there really isn't a comparison between the 2 media.

    I think maybe this thread is one of those "get off my lawn" moments.


    Me, well I converted to artificial turf a while ago.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    I've made my opinion clear, I'm not likely to change it. How about you leave me alone, and I'll return the courtesy?
    emil,
    if you said something that wasn't derogatory or insulting maybe i would listen.

    It's one thing to dislike what he's done, it's another to claim it isn't legitimate. There's not a single person, here, who can (or should) claim to be the arbiter of what photography is (or isn't).

    Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!

    Charcoal drawing is not photography.


    So there
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
