There is an even worse side to this!
At our college (16-18 yrs) we teach analogue photography as the main basis of our course. We have been aware for some time that we will have to move more to digital, after all we have to teach the kids relevant skills!
I have passionatley thought with my head of department to keep the darkrooms, as the students love it (and it gives me two large darkrooms for my own work ). But unfortunetly this is only go to hasten the move to digital, which is cheaper and less reliant on materials.
I never thought I would say this but .... I am glad I have digital skills! or I would be out of a job within a couple of years.
