The Resurrected Camera argues that … “Digital technology could be the best thing ever to happen to film”.

He writes: “I’ve had a few discussions with classmates who’ve never touched a camera that wasn’t digital, and there seems to be some ignorance/misinformation out there that needs clearing up.  There exists a device, wherein a photographer takes a strip of film negative and converts it into binary code on a computer, therefore rendering it a digital photograph.  Shoot a roll of film, get it developed, scan it; that’s really as far as you need to go (optical printing is just the icing on the cake).  From there, you can do whatever you want with it, and all the advantages of digital technology become open to film users.”

I read an article in a blog called The Shaw Academy, about 10 Signs You Are Ready To Become A Professional Photographer. Read The article and see which sings you recognize  in yourself.

For Last I’ve read an article by By Russ Burden at Outdoor Photographer  titled Move Beyond the Hobby. In this short article he describes his development as a photographer.

He writes “From the first time I picked up a camera when I was 12 years old, photography has been a big part of my life. Over the years it evolved and I turned professional. The point at which this occurred is tough to define so it’s hard to say when I moved beyond the hobby. When I get asked by enthusiastic photographers what they need to do to become a professional, I give them a quick synopsis of the steps I took. They certainly are not the be all, end all, but they should help point you in the right direction. Found below are some of the steps I’ve taken. Mimic them, modify them, or dismiss them and choose your own path. Whatever course you choose, stay determined and focused.”

    I’ve read his article and, while somewhat informative, it does contain opinionated anti-digital photography bigotry. for instance:

    “I saw a post not too long ago that tried the list all the ways in which digital photography beats out film photography, because digital photography is really on the ropes now, is in danger of being put out of business, and needs to be defended against that overwhelming majority of film shooters out there. I think digital cameras will pretty soon reach their last generation, because most people are happy just using their phones and don’t need the specialization of a DSLR; he should have been talking about that!”

    “Now, I will say that digital cameras can potentially outperform film cameras in some crucial ways, but I can’t think of one that has anything to do with real photography.”

    First of all, what Joe is saying is that digital photography is dying, and second, digital photography is not photography at all, in an effort to validate his own hatred of digital photography, which he justifies by shooting only one roll of film a month(https://resurrectedcamera.wordpress.com/2014/07/26/the-cost-of-shooting-film/).

      I would like to say to all forms of photography/imaging/painting arts… to “Live long and prosper…” digital and analog are all mediums to express our passion nothing more.
