Kodak, HP, Fuji, Rollei, Cine Still and more
Analog film is great. I love the look of it, the feel of it, and I even love the smell. I guess this isn't too surprising, because when I started out In photography years ago, film was the only option. As I learned about exposure, color, focus, and composition, film was my companion and guide, but also my most considerable censor: it's a slap in the face to pay for a roll of film and processing it only to discover that I wasn't loading the camera properly and made 36 exposures of black, or white - of nothing.
Years after digital came out, I still use analog cameras even as the world is going crazy for the digital counterparts. Despite the general excitement of digital developments in those early days, film—to me—is still relevant. But I am not an old-school film fundamentalist. I don't deny the advantages of the digital age, and I am far from being a hipster embracing an old technology in the name of fashion. It is merely that digital came, but film never went away for me. They both are my options for photography.
I embrace both technologies and have come to appreciate them. Film and digital cameras, both apparently do the same job—take pictures—they are interchangeable, but sometimes one suits my project better than the other.
