This is a bit of an introspective question, but the other day I was wondering why I bother doing the 'workflow' that I do. I print monochrome in my darkroom - I like the smells, the tactile nature, the mixing chemicals, the creative feel of making a real darkroom print. For colour photos of the family (Portra mostly in 35 mm), I send them away to the lab for 7"x5" inch prints, but I also use 35mm and medium format slide film for other photos. For these, and for special prints of the family or trips I scan. The 35mm goes through a Reflecta RPS7200 and the medium format through an Epson V700. After spending a good few hours scanning the other day I began to question why I still do this. I have a perfectly good digital camera, a Nikon D700 that can make lovely prints up to 12"x16", the biggest I ever need to print, but I hardly ever use it. I only ever get it out for photos I may need for presentations or lectures because of its convenience, so why do I still use film and then scan? It's time consuming, tricky, expensive (for the film, the software and the scanners). I don't have an answer, I just thought it was interesting to think about why I still do things this way.
