Someone explain to me why we stopped using film. I get the advantages of digital. I won’t even list them, they are so many and so obvious. I love digital photography.
But even a majority of serious photographers, both pros and serious amateurs, have just stopped using film altogether. It’s not better, it’s just beautiful in its own way. This is sunset from the summit of Bear Mountain State Park, roughly 1050 feet elevation, on medium format Kodak 400 Portra film, on a shot taken with a Fuji 6×4.5 cm rangefinder.
I could spend hours and multiple pieces of software trying to make a digital image look like this, or I could just use actual film. As much as I love Analog Efex Pro, sometimes the real thing is the way to go.
