A number of photo schools still teach black and white film developing and printing.
I don't believe this helps photo students as digital is the future.

There's a strong trend towards fast lenses for both DSLR and mirrorless cameras.
I use fast lenses for low light work and when I want shallow depth of field.
56% (53 votes)
I use high ISO settings and image stabilization, in lenses or in-camera, to enable low light shooting.
18% (17 votes)
For me, it's a question of cost, and I know fast lenses are more expensive, so budget concerns dictate I use image stabilization
