Sam Cornwell  writes a post about why some photographers still choose film over digital.She writes “‘….This year will mark forty years since the invention of the first functioning digital camera, and despite it being a measly 0.01 megapixels, it heralded a new age of digital photography and with it came a death cry for film.Prompted by this incredibly dull article published recently by the BBC, I decided to ask some fellow photographers what reasons they had for still shooting the so-called “outdated” technology. Here’s the list of what they told me….”

Chris Gambat writes about the film manufactures today “….Film–the mention of it either makes photographers gawk at it due to antiquation or makes them become stirred with butterflies in the stomach.

Instead, many tend to look to Instagram and other programs for filters that give digital images the look of film.

With the world moving deeper and deeper into the digital realm, we asked film manufacturers how the industry has changed in the past five years ….”

Tiffany Mueller  Writes about an amazing film photo project that blew my mind “.. Like all great art, it all starts with an idea.

Things like determining the time of day in which the lighting is perfect and which perspective best illustrates the story, the idea. He starts by drawing a sketch of the composition he’s envisioning.

1st Of May today and I took a walk to Eantio beach, I walked down the beach and took a few shots of The Agioi Anargyroi Church and Amochostos Square with the monument for the battle of Salamina.

I recently developed a roll that I had shot with my F75 that I had bought for a steal price of 16 euros. I had shot this film in two locations that had written in two separate posts.At the Old Train Station of Megara and at Faliron. In both posts I had photos taken with my D3200. In this roll I had similar shots on film to the ones I took with my DSLR.

In my eyes the film can still stand next to digital at least to my taste,It adds character that I most times add in post proccessing in my digital photos. Also with film you are most likely going to make prints and thats a nice thing that sometimes we forget with the digital photos.
