|When should one use film, and when should one use digital?
No more film for me.
I think both have their applications, and I love both. I do my best to make my work the same whether it's one or the other. There is however a purity to film, that I fear Digital will never fully have...but I can keep trying to change that!
I would never go back to film.
when that's what's in the camera
i've been shooting digital for 14 years now. i have not shot one frame of film in that time. i do not miss it.
years ago as an assistant i was holed up in the studio darkrooom for 8 months processing film and printing. i prayed for something to take its place.
Always digital. There is no comparison. Digital allows me to do so much more with the image after it is captured. I don't own a film camera.
I still own a film camera, but have not picked it up for a couple years. My clients want digital and frankly, I think that digital allows me to push the edges, as it were. I try things more, and were I shooting film, I might not.
One should use whatever best solves the problem at hand. Neither is superior to the other.
I only use digital but still have my film cameras and use them sometimes.
If I am going to do real artistic b+w or infrared, I shoot film. The rest is digital.
Though most of my clients don't care anymore, digital just can't match the depth of woodgrain and fabrics.
Digital has made overwhelming advances that have passed film photography. However, there will always be a place especially in the fine art field for film photography. Much like sailing exists to power boating or sailplanes exist with powered-aircraft, the magic of film selection, the chemical darkroom processing and printing will forever remain a very special niche of photography.
For my own work, I will likely will use digital and keep my wonderful film cameras as a piece of nostalgia.
At present I only use film to make X-rays, as my machine is an old one.
I honestly feel the days of film are over in the same way no one records music on an 8 track or tape. There is no need. That said, there will always be a place in the world for the art of capturing light onto a film, developing chemically and watching things change in a dark room. It really is quite amazing. The smell of the chemistry, the peacefulness of a darkroom. It will always be something dear to me.
Film is over man!
