I was going to say something along those lines but you beat me to it.
I avoid saying the phrase, to my wife, "I still love you," because the word "still" implies that I might have stopped loving her at some point in time. I love my wife. I don't need to prove it by using affirmatives.
Using the phrase, "I still shoot film," has the same implication. I shoot photographs. I just happen to use film to do it.
Awww, C'mon. You know we're a bunch of weirdos here. Sad as it may be, we do need to justify our fetish for film.
