    With all due respect Nuno, I'd rather not spend the time dismissing each of your points one by one, so let's take it above the level of science. I enjoy photography, and you enjoy photography. There are plenty of viable means of achieving our aims, some of which are silicon-based, some of which are silver-based.

    Your dismissal of film suggests a certain degree of uninformed arrogance, and that's ultimately not a valuable contribution here.

    "A certain degree of uninformed arrogance"

    Excuse me?

    I don't know what you do in terms of photography, but for what I have seen in you site I must say I'm not a bit impressed. Are those taken with film at www.ronaldcraig.com? Well, then your statement "Your results will ultimately be better in many respects and you will invariably become a better photographer" simply does not apply.

    Uninformed arrogance you say? I don't know about you, but I had in the 90's for a couple of years a b&w studio at home. I believe I know what I'm talking about.

    PS: "I'd rather not spend the time dismissing each of your points one by one". Yeah, don't do that. You certainly have better things to do.

    ...and just another small thing so I don't have to come here anymore.

    "Your results will ultimately be better in many respects and you will invariably become a better photographer. The answer - go film"


    Well, from all reasons for becoming a better photographer you really chose one that has nothing to do with becoming a better photographer, simply because the results will not be better when shooting film. That's a fantasy. They will even likely be worse.

    Using film today, and I mean using it all along and not just sticking your negatives into the scanner, will lead you probably not to become a photographer at all.
