Oakland Shoreline Park

Oakland Shoreline Park, originally uploaded by Stephen Foster.

This was shot on color negative film and scanned into Adobe Lightroom.

An easy mistake for me to make would be thinking that I’m a better photographer because I use film. Analog photography is not more “real photography” than digital. A time consuming process does not give greater cachet to the results. A good photograph using film and paper does require more work than digital, but the value of the image is from the concept and execution.

Shooting film helps me become a better photographer because taking time and thinking about what I’m doing makes me a better photographer.

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch! 145412
