When the film vs. digital debate lathers up, it is not uncommon to see passion—and single-mindedness—from proponents on both sides. But when patrons to my booth at art shows ask me, “Do you use film or digital?” My answer is, “Both, and my photographs are better for it.” By fusing the best of both worlds, I am able to simultaneously tap into discipline and...

If you camp by the riverbed during a monsoon you'll soon have a wet bedroll. Moving to higher ground helps, but sometimes you have to get atop the valley wall to keep dry. That's pretty much what's happened in the last year to those making bets on where digital photography might settle. Just as we think we've reached the high watermark another drenching...
