An Argument for Film Photography

New Toy

Fellow film-nut Dan Domme posted a great article over on his blog outlining some of the advantages of film photography over digital. Since I didn't have a post ready for this week, I'm just going to link you to his. Thanks, Dan ;)

"In Which I Counter an Argument: 10 reasons film is superior to digital"

I'm not saying you shouldn't shoot digital (and neither is Dan), but there are a lot of good reasons to give film photography a try and see how you like it. A lot of what Dan says lines up with my motivations for shooting film, and while it's not the best medium for every type of photography (I don't think I could ever bring myself to shoot a wedding all on film), it certainly has a valid place in the photography universe still.

If you like what you read, you should give Dan a follow on twitter (@yeknom) and check out his work on flickr. And of course, his blog.

  1. Thanks for the shout out! You nailed my motivations.

    A friend of mine is getting married this October, and in order to keep costs down, she's recruiting a bunch of her friends who are amateur photographers to collectively shoot the day for her. Needless to say, I accepted it as a challenge to prove to everyone (including myself) that I can do a wedding on film. (Note: it would be my first gig.)
