I've been really inspired by various photographers and people in this forum (like Helen B.). And, going to a museums or websites and seeing their work or just reading a book by or about a photographer can really get me going. Lately, I've been a little dogged by the whole digital thing. I've resisted getting into digital photography for a number of reasons, one primary reason is the computer. Don't get me wrong. I use computers all the time. But that's just it. My resistance has to do with fact that I am on the computer so much for my "day job" and to have to be on it any more would just not be healthy (but look how I'm on it right now). And, I got into film photography (and art in general) as a youth but was interrupted in my who pursuit of art. My dear brother in law (who has been a professional photographer for most of his adult life) just said that I should continue with film if I love it and it keeps me sane. I guess I'm just looking for some additional encouragement in the pursuit of film photography - which would include film development and printing because the hugeness and intensity of the digital photography movement is making me doubt the sanity of film photography. I mean, it seems like everybody is capturing these great image effortlessly compared to all the work I put into my film...and that kind of gets into the journey not the destination thing. Too tired and too late to continue. I'll cap this off later. Am I making any sense?
