However it should be noted that the digital crowd isn't exactly kind nor respectful towards their analog "brethren".

I don't think digital is garbage but I do think there's a unmistakably more amount of garbage as a result of it.


I agree fully with this! Additionally, if the fauxtographers (what a terrific term!) had started, learned and skilled up with film over several decades, they may just have made a better name for themselves in digital. There are APUG members here who produce beautiful work in digital, not just analogue. Those that know the craft can produce a beautiful image from either method.

Like so many others, I don't ever use a digital camera to hide faults or problems in my photography. I did all that with film and that is still the very best medium to learn from irrespective of knowledge or experience.
