Film has been enjoying a bit of a resurgence recently, and you may be wondering if it's worth trying out yourself. This great video discusses some reasons why a film workflow is distinctly different from a digital workflow and why it can be more enjoyable.
Coming to you from Ben Horne, this excellent video makes some very interesting points about working with film and why it can sometimes be the preferable choice over digital. In particular, Horne makes an excellent point about the ever-evolving standards of digital and how these can sometimes make photos that you took years ago seem unworthy in light of recent technological advancements, even if you did everything correctly technique-wise when you took the photo and took maximum advantage of the capabilities of the equipment you had at the time. I personally still enjoy shooting with film quite a bit because of a combination of factors ranging from nostalgia to the pace, and I agree with Horne that it tends to encourage you to focus much less on your gear and much more on the fundamentals of photography. Give the video above a watch for his full thoughts.
