he also sums up his sentiments on film vs digital quite nicely:
If it didn’t look a million times better, I wouldn’t bother with it (film). Of course it’s subjective, but film looks more like what I saw when I made the photo.

Photography is what I do to get away from the ‘puter, digital just makes for more sitting down time.
