    I think the discussion should be 'why we shoot digital'? its a bizare, ten years old medium but the one from over a century needs justification.

    That's a fair point; it's akin to asking 'Why do you write letters with a fountain pen instead of e-mail?'

    IMO, if one has confidence in one's work, one certainly doesn't need to explain one's choice of medium. You wouldn't ask an artist why s/he chooses to sketch with charcoal and paper - a medium considerably older than photography - instead of a sketch tablet and laptop - would you?

    If the equipment is good, the medium is well-chosen and the result is fit for purpose, where's the problem? A better question might be 'Why should *anyone* need to justify his/her choice of medium?'. If one requires approval for one's choices, the problem is with the ego, not the medium.

    All IMO of course.

    Cheers,

    I really think that using film is a way to enjoy photography that you never can with digital. I don't knock digital as a technology at all - use it if you want to, as long as the pictures are good.
    But I LOVE film photography and darkroom printing, and I cannot bring myself to love digital capture or even film scanning. It is dull dull dull and boring boring boring. It's how it is. I find the groove under the safelight. The rest doesn't matter. Hopefully enough people will stay enthusiastic about it so we can continue to have film for a long time yet. Without film I would just quit.

    Absolutely, a well founded choice of medium is a source of confidence leaving creativity as the sole recipient for energy and consideration.
