Lightbulb If You Like Film then by all Means Shoot it.

I don't mean to ruffle any feathers, but the continuing lamentations by some that film makes you a better photographer is like arguing that Eric Clapton is a hack guitar player because he plays an electric most of the time.

Sure there were no do overs in film and the settings had to be correct each time, but digital allows people to push the art further than before because they don't spend as much time retaking messed up shots.

Further from an environmental stand point, digital is way better because there are not as many nasty chemicals involved and the overall cost is so much cheaper.

Now people are not so limited in this art form by what they can afford to have processed and why would anyone shoot rolls of film that they didn't intend to get processed?

That is just silly and a waste of the film because old film does not make good images - that is common knowledge.
