I can remember when digital cameras started to become popular, or affordable, or basically when all of my friends started getting them. I was very anti-digital because I just felt it took away what is special about a film photo and that is that you only have one (or two, but don't waste your film!) tries at a photo. What you shoot is what you get and your stuck with it. What is so special about a picture you never have to print to see, that you can take as many as you want and just delete the ones you don't like?
Eventually, of course, I came around and now love my digital camera.
Last week I spent the entire week digitizing our family's photos. My dad was (and is) huge into taking pictures of us and also video (we have hours and hours of video from our childhood). We have thousands of photos and I had been planning for a few years to scan them all. I scanned around 1,500 pictures and there are still around 800 or more that are left to do!! Naturally, after last week I am happy we have digital cameras!!
I thought I would share some of my favorites.
