Film vs. digital...






















My previous post of the "Veiled" woman was shot with film.  Some days I have trouble deciding which medium I prefer.  On this day I wanted to shoot both just to see which result I would like better.  The film process takes time.  Shoot... lab... wait... pickup... scan... done.  The digital process is different; quicker on the front end but extremely time consuming in the post production.  You can work on a digital image endlessly!  So which do I prefer?  Each medium has its merits, and it's impossible to declare an undisputed champion.  Each medium is a tool to get the job done.  In the end, it's up to the individual to decide.
