As the section Moderator I'd like to welcome your creativity and input to create and maintain an active UHH subsection. Analog photography, also known as film photography, is a catch-all term for photography that uses chemical processes to capture an image, typically on paper, film or a hard plate. These analog processes were the only methods available to photographers for more than a century prior to the invention of digital photography, which uses electronic sensors to record images to digital media.

Interest in all types of film photography has been experiencing a very real revival. My own interests involve the film types, and the exposure technique, and the creation of a unique look based on color and B&W film that both overlaps and is distinct from a digital-only result. Others enjoy the developing and printing process and the vast range of film sizes, from ancient tintype and glass plate through general purpose 35mm negatives and slides and into the high resolution 'large format' using 4x5-inch sheet film.

Young (and old) photographers say film has more 'soul' than digital. This section isn't intended to rehash a debate over film vs digital; but rather, for an appreciation and discussion of the 'how' and 'where' and 'what' for those who never left film and for those interested in furthering this film comeback.

Personally, I only shoot film to be scanned and edited, and only 35mm negative film using auto-focus capable Canon equipment. I look forward to sharing my experiences, while recognizing mine is such a narrow view and level of experience within the long and historic spectrum of the processes and equipment that fall into the category of film photography.

I've scanned and edited hundreds of 35mm negatives. Let's include ideas on scanning too.

Please come and subscribe and share your knowledge and experiences and interest. I personally hope to inspire a new interest and confidence in shooting film, one that causes someone (hopefully you) to achieve a result they never thought possible in film, a result that is something you wanted and is more than just a lucky accident.

All of the general rules of the site apply to the Film Photography section.
