I would first like to say digital sensors are far superior to any film type and I do not care, you can argue the difference between digital Phase One backs vs’s large format film every day of the week. I don’t shoot film for the quality, I shoot film for the experience.
Film photography is so old it feels new to my generation, it is a way to step back and think more about the shot you are taking. If you have shot on film before you will know the excitement of waiting for your images to come back from the lab, wondering if you have got accurate exposures. The look of film photography pleases me more than digital as I enjoy the imperfections of film such as the grain and the dynamic range.
With digital you may spend all the time editing photos after the initial shoot however with film 9/10 times I am happy with the result, for example, the only time I have had to edit the photo was when it had an orange tint so I corrected it in Photoshop by reducing the temperature of the shot and it came out great.
Digital noise vs Grain
The ‘noise’ you see when a negative is scanned onto a digital copy is not noise it is grain. Film grain is different to noise as it is not built up of various colours unlike digital. For prints, digital noise is more apparent when enlarging the image whilst with film the grain is reduced.
Black and white photos look more organic
This is personal opinion however, I think black and white on film looks more organic and natural compared to digital. The grain adds to the beauty of the photograph.
