Digital photography has features to excite the average iphone owner: ease of use being the most obvious. But jpg files fall short when analog photography offers more than point-and-shoot's simplicity and swipe-left filters. Some of today's up and coming photographers are discovering (note, I didn't say re-discovering) the finicky art of analog photography. Film camera's can be picked up on the cheap through ebay and are gaining in popularity just like letterpress did not so long ago. For me, photography falls into three categories: Digital, Analog and Printed. Each has it's place. Printed photos can come from either digital or analog, but for those with a hankering for some hands-on analog tweaking, nothing beats a good quality analog camera and lens.
