Sometimes I do wonder, why even bother with film. Then, all I need to do is develop a roll, see the negatives, and then, I realize why. In my job as a programmer, I spend at least 8 hours per day with a computer. I remember when digital cameras first became available, I was fascinated with the instant gratification of the digital image.
