Okay, I admit, I haven’t had this argument in a very long time. And I don’t want to have it. Really, I just don’t care anymore. It has been almost two years since I ran a roll of film through a camera and, as discussed in this post by National Geographic’s Director of Photography David Griffin, I shot film because of the camera (my beloved Leica M6) and not because of the medium.
At National Geographic we do not require photographers to shoot one way of another–we support both approaches. Ultimately, we care more about what is being photographed and less about how.
