Enough Already!

Just to show that we’re not total digital fanboys here at One Stop Under, here’s an article about a fine art monochrome photographer who has dipped a toe in the digital ocean and gone back to shooting film: Enough Already! by Pete Myers.

Pete shoots fine art monochrome, centered on landscape photography of the American West. He has shot for some time with an almost-unique Kodak DCS 760m, and wrote a great article about it for The Luminous Landscape. He has, however, decided to go back to his trusty Leica MP loaded with Efke 25 monochrome film for his professional landscape work.

The fact that Pete shoots landscapes with a rangefinder is itself interesting – most professional landscape photographers seem to shoot medium or large format – but isn’t really covered in this article. This is a fascinating look at how Pete works, and highlights some of the advantages film has over digital for him.

The film vs. digital debate is never clear-cut; one or the other will always be better for specific purposes, and one or the other will always be more enjoyable to some photographers. Rather than add to the debate on such a pointless issue, I like to use both for what they are, and read about the great things being done with both mediums.
