There is no doubt that digital is by far the choice of the majority of professionals nowadays, but there is still a contingent of photographers who are avidly devoted to shooting film, either exclusively or in tandem with digital. This interesting video takes a look at using both simultaneously and why that can benefit you as a photographer.
Coming to you from Steve O'Nions, this video examines the interesting topic of shooting with both film and digital at the same time and how this can actually be most beneficial for hybrid shooters. I have personally always liked this approach; when I go out to shoot landscapes, I typically take my Sony setup since it has tremendous resolution and dynamic range, making it an incredibly versatile tool, particularly when I pull the files into post-processing. On the other hand, I grew up shooting film, and while the nostalgia is a large part of why I still shoot it, I also simply enjoy the process for many reasons. That is why I like to also throw a few rolls of Velvia 50 into my bag when I head out shooting, particularly for its brilliant colors. Check out the video above for O'Nions' full thoughts.
