Why shoot film? Chris says that one compelling reason is that we've learned to delay decisions when we shoot digital. Shooting on film makes you think about exposure, aperture, and framing. All those things that you can fix in post. Shooting in film makes you think about it more first. But even then, you can scan the image into your computer and adjust it. Some developers will even give you a CD of your images when you have them developed. Check out Chris' book The Film Photography Handbook.

Next week we'll review our current assignment: Dirt. There's still time to take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "dirt" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "dirt" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
