I use film for my fine art work because it inspires my imagination in ways that I don’t get from shooting digital. I have been shooting film since I was 15 years of age, after more 40 years of film usage I still feel that film has value in today’s digital world. Some back ground: I have been a newspaper photographer since I was 18 years of age. I started out shooting black and white film with my Nikon F2 camera. Today its all digital and I have to say that I love shooting digital for my newspaper work.
Back in November of 2001 the newspaper I currently work for, the Kelowna Daily Courier, bought Nikon D1H digital cameras for the photo staff. I would never want to go back to film for my day to day work assignments at the paper . Digital is a must in photojournalism, I wouldn’t want to be with out it, as it’s awfully convenient to use.
