Thought for the day...

We were talking about why colleges in the UK still teach first year students to use film instead of digital capture when the market-place they're entering is dominated by film, when a fellow photographer came up with the this quote:

"Teaching students to use film is a bit like teaching keyboard skills with a quill pen..."

The identity of this photographer will remain anonymous as the studio takes in a number of work experience students during the year.

Surely students would be better getting a grounding in current technology and not getting themselves deeper into debt by having to shell out for film and processing, both of which are becoming increasingly scarce, a bit like the film cameras they use?

TTFN, Ian
