    I wonder, can I put the digital aside for a year.

    This Thursday the sun will rise to a fresh start.
    I'm going to just shoot film for the next year and see what happens.

    I've just finished a large documentary shooting digital, and Wednesday I have a commercial shoot, but after that I'm free.

    I'm going to put aside the digital for a year, just shoot black and white film and make prints for the wall. I'm not sure if I can make it... but wont it be fun to try.

    And yes I still make my living through photography.

    Good challenge - almost like trying to live off the land for a year. Does using a digital only as a light meter count I wonder? I've never been able to justify the price of a good light meter when my DSLR gives me a histogram and accurate reading. But I do have to make an image to see the histogram...

    Why should using film instead of digital be a challenge for any APUG user?

    I guess if you're a professional, then the client's wants/needs have to come first. Some will demand digital, or at least get nervous if you insist on film. Or perhaps budget rules out film. But for the hobbyists, sure, I didn't use a digital camera last year.

    Uh oh. The topic is concerned with shooting just film. I'm sure most people here use at least a camera phone occasionally.

    Don't forget to cycle any rechargeable batteries your digigear might use.

    Camera phone! Wash your mouth out with soap and water.
