In today's world of digital photography, shooting film doesn't seem to make sense anymore. Digital capture has become the norm for most professional and amateur photographers and the general public alike for a good number of reasons: the elimination of film processing, scanning, and the cost associated with it; the relatively fast capture to print to publish, to name a few. With all the benefits digital offers, I still partially shoot film! Maybe it is the fact that I like to keep the image visualized in my mind until I can actually see it on film. Or maybe it is the immersive process of image-taking using my view camera. Whatever the reason, my digital and film cameras get along well, and I'm happy to shoot both. I should mention that in the case of film, from scan to print, all processing is done digitally. Below is a list of the photographic equipment I currently use.
