Hi Daniel, I was interested when you mentioned some time ago that you'd be using film on your course. I was a big fan of film, and I'm also interested in the history of photography and the chemical darkroom process, but do you - or other forum members - think it's relevant to teach film photography and processing to students today? Wouldn't be better to concentrate on digital technology?

What does everyone think?

No no no, I didn't mean we need a film forum, I just couldn't think of a title for the post.

I personally think that a "Other Photography" section could be added in beside the landscape and science bits, just for any that don't fit into those. I could have split them up, but sometimes photos are just really random, so an "Other" or "Misc." section would not go a miss!

You've misunderstood me Daniel!

I'm genuinely interested in what you think about learning film photography in this digital day and age - and also what the other forum members think...

How do your teachers pitch it to you?

I think in the "Other" section it should be all towards unique ways of creating images like; pinhole cameras, film, HDR, and other things like that.

Whilst I wouldn't claim that knowledge of film processing could make a bad picture good, I do think that knowledge can enhance the results when the photographer has "a good eye". Some folks I meet these days genuinely have no knowledge of what an "f-stop" actually is, never mind what ISO does. I think this is one of the problems of shooting exclusively in digital, it's as though shooting digitally is the "theory" class, whereas with film it's the "practical" class. Practical is always the better lesson, imo.

I'm currently doing a 12-week Photoshop night class and I think when it's finished I might just enroll in a darkroom class, even though I already have some experience in the darkroom already. Just some thoughts.

Ah no - its a big misunderstanding!

I didn't mean you wern't interested, I just ment that you should have a seperate section for film, HDR, pinhole (stole from above lol) or other different types of photography that are not covered by the other sections.

He didn't really pitch it to us, he said it was much easier doing it all digital, but said he would help us if we wanted to do any more film stuff and that it wasn't a problem.

We have to gather around 15 portrait photos that we like over the 2 week holdiat starting this comming monday.

Anyway library at school has been invaded by 1st years!!! (like 11 year olds) so g2g!
