Sean,

I think that hybrid methods will last for a long time. It is relatively easy for users to create a wide variety of print media in their own darkrooms and using hybrid methods, make beautiful prints. These prints will reflect the skill and interests of their creators. Creating camera ready film is far from easy.

Hybrid methods give photographers additional tools to express themselves. Ultimately, digital technology is just a new toolbox that gives photographers many new tools that photographers can use as they choose.
