Film|Digital is a new Tumblr I’ve just started which is gear-centric. It takes a personal look at cameras and gear ownership as oppose to just spewing technical jargon on the latest digital camera offerings. I’ll review the cameras I currently own, take a look back at the various cameras I used to own and have a chat with some talented friends to get their thoughts on the gear they use. My hope is to have a different kind of gear review site, one that gives information about cameras, but also insight into the people that use them.

Oh I’m full of things that are considered blasphemy in today’s industry. I don’t like dslr’s. I don’t think digital is a good way for most people to learn photography. I don’t think there is any way to archive digital files, at least I’ve never found a single person who actually knows how or has any real plan for the future. I think a lot of photographers, after switching to digital, are not nearly as good as they were during their analog days. I think digital has killed the editing abilities of most photographers. I don’t think seeing an image right after you make it is a good thing. I don’t think having the ability to overshoot every scene actually helps make better images. I think digital has trivialized the idea of photography in the minds of everyday people.I think our industry is now almost entirely centered around technology as opposed to imagery. I’ve never seen an HDR image I like, and the fact I’m starting to see this technique creep into nearly every genre of photography makes me sick.
How is that for starters? I don’t get invited to many parties these days. At the core, digital is a great thing. What we do with it, how we use it…that is another matter.

The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case.

As photographers we are all so desperate to make work that people will notice. Work that will matter deeply to someone other than ourselves. What I think we fail to realize sometimes is that this is one of the easiest things to do. Think of that snapshot you have of your mom or dad as a child. How much does it mean to you? Unless you make it to the Met or MOMA the work you make that will end up being priceless is the photos of the people you love. Get out there and document the love in your life.

lately I have been experimenting with using movie film (Kodak 500T) in my 35mm film cameras.

@parkerfitzhenry snapped this in a shop in Japan. It’s so crazy to me that my images are being used to sell something as iconic as #kodak #film. I’m truly honored.
