Hippie Pinko Sparse Shooter

Maybe it's just me, but I shoot far less with digital than I ever did with film. You?

I don't know why. I don't mean to. Maybe it's because it's easier to get what I want, or maybe I just know when I've gotten what I want. Maybe I enjoy using the camera less. Maybe I dislike dealing with large volumes of files on the computer, having never really worked out a competent workflow (I still treat digital casually, as though it were somehow less serious. I don't do that on purpose either—it's just the way I feel). Maybe it's that I only own one card. Maybe I have less visceral attraction to creating pictures in color than exposing yummy Tri-X. Whatever the reason, I would estimate my shooting volume with digital is 1/10th to 1/5th what it used to be with film.

Of course, I'm also a left-handed freethinking introverted artistic socialist, so maybe I'm just in the minority on everything.
