Looking over the photos that I consider to my best over the last few years I was struck by just how many were shot with film.

There are 27 photos I’ve rated with five stars in Adobe Lightroom or Aperture over the last 10 years.¹ Of these 15 were shot with film and 12 of those 15 were shot with my Leica rangefinder.

I don’t there’s any great meaning to this; it probably just underlines a preference that’s already there. Film isn’t any better or worse than digital but I take better photos when I have to slow down and think about the results I want.

That’s probably good advice regardless of what you use to take photos.
