Over at Anti Lomography, a group of film purists are attacking what they deemed as their inferior film counterpartsólomographers who use “old film cameras that are generally of extremely poor quality and overpriced”.
They claim they aren’t anti-digital and support digital photography as one of the best ways to learn photography. But they would later add: “when you get sick of ‘post processing’, buy an old film camera and discover yourself and further discover photography.”
I can’t believe there are still people who believe that film is any more pure than digital. Any self-respecting photographerófilm or digitalówould spend time post processing their photos. Ansel Adams was not only known as a master in landscape photography, but a master in darkroom techniques.
The only reason why they would imply post processing as bad and inferior to film photography is probably because they’ve been shooting like the lomographersóletting the 1-hour labs do the developing and printing for them.
