I've taken Polarod pics before but every camera I've ever owned was digital.

Why it is film vs digital now?
If I need macro, I use DSLR, if I want very unique looking SOOC BW portrait, I'll grab film MF.
If I want play on streets I'll take film RF, if I go to Irish Pub after and want to share some pictures from it, I use iPhone.

Few weeks ago I was reading famous baby photographer article. Most of you know her, she puts little ones on huge pumpkins and so on. She has her book published. All pictures in her article were 10+ years old and all were film MF. Yet, she mentioned, now it is digital for her. Easy to make money with.
Same for this Canadian in NY. Why he should put his time, which is money on risk and travel with film MF to take same kind of BW shots many took before him?
Instead he makes it with digital, in colors and pinkish PP.
Guess what, I look at thousands pictures every three months or so. I remember his African pictures right away, once I opened provided here link.
Good photographer is not the one with minivan of all kind of gear, it is the one who makes his pictures recognizable and memorizable.

To be honest. Never owned a camera in my life, but shot with a fully automatic film camera (basically a heavy, bulky 'compact') on holidays.. The only thing you could change was the sensitivity of the film, but you would have to make 24/36 shots with as far as I remember ISO 100 or ISO 400. That's the only film they sold at local stores. Unfortunately, this camera died last year.

Don't worry, I'm planning to buy my very own camera soon :)

Digital vs film... How did we get here? Oh, those who does not shoot film feeling the need to justify why they shouldn't shoot film. And telling us, those who shoot film and digital ironically, to mind our places. Hahahaha.... I say it again. I shoot BOTH. In fact, I will even shoot more films since I have discovered that my 35mm negatives seem to turn up pretty well for web usage size from the scan I did. Is it so bad to know that digital photography isn't the end all of all photography?

No one, and I mean NO ONE is justifying anything except you Victor. All I see are balanced and thoughtful responses from almost everyone here. I know I have never, even knocked film. Why would I when I feel that it's just another medium to realize your creative vision? You are the one all caught up in film and how it's a "+1" and how digital photographers are "one trick ponies" and how us digital photographers have a gaping hole in us because we have never experienced film. These are all blanket statements and have absolutely zero correlation to talent and skill level. None.

Do you think guys like Joey Lawrence think they need to justify anything? Do you think I, as a digital only shooter, feel like I need to justify anything? Of course not. Because I don't give a sh*t about the medium I shoot in. I only care about creating engaging photographs and I strive to become better at exactly that. I certainly hope that you are doing the same but if that makes me narrow minded and a one trick pony, then hey, I want to be narrow minded and a one trick pony and continue to strive to make compelling and engaging photographs while you do...we what exactly is it that you do man? I mean, I think it's great that you are tinkering in film and I am sure you are learning a lot from it. But for the love of all things holy, stop drinking that kool-aid bro. Shooting both DOES NOT MAKE YOU BETTER. That's not a justification on my part or anyone else who doesn't shoot film. That's just fact...and that isn't lost on most of the folks that posted in here...except you.

Hehehe....:) So, tell me, Nick, why are you here arguing and writing a book about your point of view on film? Ironically, you don't even shoot film. If this is not a justification of you not shooting film, I don't know what is. Oh, Joey, he ain't here. He isn't really in this discussion. I still think his works lack varieties. I hope he isn't an one trick pony, in his medium AND style. That's bad.

Do you have anything interesting to say about shooting film? I mean, seriously, your ranting and your desire to put film in its place are a bit boring.

Put film in its place? You mean the part where I mention it was just as viable as any other medium? Then hey, I guess I was ranting. Your consistent reading comprehension issue just cracks me up. That's not to mention how you seem to dismiss anybody who doesn't agree with your perspective. But hey, it's all good man.

Let me clue you in on something. Gathering from the responses, I am not the one spewing a bunch of egotistic B.S. calling people a one trick pony, narrow minded, etc. Pretty sad dude.

Um, pretty sure he was paying him a compliment and saying how the type of gear you use doesn't have a correlation with talent and style. But hey, let me not bore you with the actual details. :lol:

He does use a van or a truck or some sort. Scroll down and to see the shot of him and his assistant packing things up because it began to rain. http://www.joeyl.com …kage/session-with-joey-l/ (external link) Come to think of it, it is quite interesting he is trying to market himself by offering lessons on his photography. Is only $200. Hey, what can I say?

Oh man, answering this question makes me feel old!

My first camera was pretty old even when I was given it by my dad in the 1950's. It was a 1920's Kodak Autographic Brownie, with a little window on the back to allow you to get the autograph of whomever you just photographed directly on the negative! There's a photo of one here (external link).

My first 35mm was a Argus Cintar C3, which I got in 1963. It was the size and shape of a brick, like the one seen here (external link).

How times have changed!

Seriously dude, you need to start your own thread on "Do you not shoot film?" I think we should have a sub section on POTN about Film. That should keep you busy for a while, huh...:cool: I can see that you would contribute a lot.
