Enthusiasm for his subject is a great thing for a blogger to have and I enjoyed reading this post by Mark Hilliard, a predominantly digital shooter who has recently returned to film. It's a post about his joy at coming home to film again and starts with the words, "Oh my, I do NOT know where it came from but I got the BUG again for more film photography!"
It ends with, "I have spent fortunes on digital and have loved every moment of it. Film will NOT take any of that away, I still have digital and continue to use it. But I have to be honest and admit that working in film again fills me with a sense of peace that I have not experienced in a very long time…"
In between Mark describes his journey. It's a good post to show someone you know who uses digital but is considering a go at film. I don't know about you but I love it when a sinner repents - a journey I know only too well myself!
Mark's a skilled photographer and illustrates the post with some lovely pics. You can read what he says here.
