    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    I've never really thought of that as photography, myself.

    This is what bothers me about it. We never called traditional photography "analog" until digital came along. Why do we let "them" define our terms for us? It seems reactive instead of proactive.

    That said, I'm not about to suggest that the name of APUG be changed. "Traditional Photography Users Group" makes a lousy acronym!

    I'd be more impressed if that actually worked.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    analog (or analogue):

    my definition is: get off the damn computer and go out and shoot some film!

    that would can everyone who uses platinum or other various techniques.. not to mention nearly every name you can think of is already registered (even tpug, spug, etc) this is why after 3 days of trying to work out a name that encompasses everything traditional I settled with apug so we could get a site going..
