    I admire your sense of artistry and craftsmanship. I think your clientele does appreciate the warmth of a portrait shot with film and hand printed. I haven't shot a commercial assignment for over 12 years, but I think with the downward pressure on fees, forces photographers to go digital. The old school billing of photography usually doesn't have budgets for post production which more and more photographers shooting digital are doing. However, I don't know if they can bill for it. I think photographers like you are rare wiling to give up profession than produce an inferior product. Some professional photographers just adapt to market conditions which can mean the degrading the quality of the final product like portraits. With commercial work, it's all reproduced in print or viewed on the web which is probably well suited for digital photography anyway.
    Best,

    I'm sure many of you have already read this, but for those of you who haven't...It gives me a lift each time I do.

    Thanks again Kirk!

    Just the other day I was noticing that I when I
    ditched the digital camera last year.
    I also ditched the digital watches,
    now I back to wearing the Seiko Divers Analog Watch.
    An adult really shouldn't wear a Big Black Plastic Watch.

    I think the last time I wore a digital watch was a Seiko back in the early '80s

    He has a nice website @ http://www.kirktuck.com and from the look of it, I assume he is still using digital to make money and give clients what they want, with some film mixed in. Could be totally wrong, of course.

    I tried scanning and usign a stink-jet printer. That lasted until I had to buy new ink cartriges after ten prints. I went out and bought an enlarger instead. Besides, what is the use of doing photography if I can't get my hands in toxic chemicals?

    I never found anything digital to compare with watching a print develop or opening a tank and looking at my freshly developed film.
