Should/do you keep you negatives
4

This is a big topic for me at the moment, all be it accidentally. I mentioned in a post on 35mmc that I bin my negs and I think a few of my readers might have had actual genuine heart attacks.

Since then, I published a video talking about it with a mate who’s a darkroom fanatic. He didn’t agree that I was doing the right thing, but I did, I think, get my point across.

For me, the value is in the final image on my computer. I don’t need a neg, and I’m not bothered about the whole archiving thing. I don’t use a darkroom, so I don’t need them.

But to some, the neg is the tangible thing, and one of the big reasons to shoot film in the first place.

What are your thoughts?
