Re: Any reason to shoot film nowadays?

An interesting thing happens to me when I'm photographing a couple for an engagement session.  When I'm done, I often get questions from people who saw the session being photographed. They ask about the F5 or Mamiya RB67 and they comment on how cool it is that I'm using film and how I really must know what I'm doing.  I've gotten business from those discussions when I tell them I can run a B&W session for them, and I'll hand process the film and prints.  They love the idea.

I like one of the earlier posters who said that he shot film to tick off all the digital people!
