Ha, define art.
Meh. I shoot because I like it. I'm trying to make a side "business" from it mainly shooting film. Mostly because I enjoy it and hope others do also. The ultimate promotion of film would be to have people hire me just for that. When/if that takes off, more/better gear will come flowing my way.
Oh yeah, You're not really a photographer if you don't shot 4x5 or larger. or so I heard.
