In your perfect world digital may be the perfect solution, but there are others who have different goals in life, different ways of working and different needs. For one, they may be needing "romantic" materials to get satisfaction out of their work. Running studios all over the world does not make you the supreme source of all photography knowledge. Well, of course, it's just your opinion, but you seem to push hard to rule out other ideas than yours. I strongly believe there is a place for everything. Digital has opened lots of new doors, which is great. But I am very happy that film is in my bundle of choices too. Not everybody wants to hike around with a production team following in a helicopter.
I'm not going to apologize or change the way I write. I share from my experience and make it clear that it is only my experience as I am my only intimate reference I have, but be under no misconceptions that I think my way is the only way, because I know it's not.
Also be clear that what I write is in the form of sharing, not taking and the last thing I want is anyone to do things the way I do them.
But for the record, my life is pretty much a get up and work 18 hour a day style of existence.
If it comes across to you or others as bragging, or portraying a lifestyle where I fly in private jets, carry a fluffy white cat and have people waiting on me hand and foot it's not.
It's just plain ol' hard, light industrial labor.
P.S. I also ain't protesting and I'm sure as hell not a lady.
