Film or Digital Photography?
The Analog vs Digital Debate
Most of the world is trending toward digital photography but there are still those who prefer film. I am one who has left my film cameras behind and moved on to digital but I recognize that some photographers with good reasons still love their film cameras or use both film and digital.
Digital technology is always improving but some stay with film because they see an advantage or quality in film images that can't be achieved with digital photography. I have found that there is debate as to whether these superior qualities of film over digital actually exist. The debate can become heated but let's not do that here. This is an opportunity to state your preference, film or digital and to give your reasons for your preference. Convince us!

Why I Like Digital
I have gone digital an not looked back at my film cameras for several reasons. I'll share a few of the reasons I now prefer digital over film:
I. I can shoot a lot of images and it costs me nothing for film or developing. This is a significant advantage over film cameras for me.
2. I enjoy doing my own image developing or processing using Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro and other software products. These image processing applications allow me to take my images where they could never go with film and they stimulate my creative juices.
3. Digital image storage on my PC and various storage devices is much easier than storing film and prints. It takes less space and I can more easily access my images.
4. Digital images can be more easily shared with others than a print.
5. I am quite content with the image quality of high end digital cameras with a high end lens.
My Fine Art Photography Website
I have a fine art photography website where you can view my diverse photographic interests. I have a gallery dedicated to vintage vehicles and buildings, galleries for landscapes, waterfalls, birds, wildlife, painterly photography and a variety of other specialized subjects. Mount Shasta and various northern California scenes are prominent in many of my galleries. Most of the galleries have background music if you play them as a slideshow. This allows you to kick back and listen to the music as the images flow by. Whether you are looking for some interesting images or looking to purchase some photographic art, I think you will enjoy your visit to Chuck Nelson Photography.
I have applied many of my photographs and digital art to a wide variety of products such as mugs, mouse pads, T-shirts, cards, etc. If you are looking for a one-stop location for unique gifts, be sure to visit my Zazzle website.
