Digital photography trumping film for good?
Digital cameras first became available to consumers in 1990. Now, 20 years later, we have them in our phones, our computers and our cars.
But for those of you who don’t remember, there was a medium that existed before the digital age.
An entire generation has grown up never having had their picture taken by a film camera. Film harkens back to a time when photography was an art and photographers were master craftsmen.
Ansel Adams was 14 when he used a Kodak Brownie to take his first picture back in 1916 in Yosemite Park.
Adams bought his film to the family-owned Adolph Gasser’s in San Francisco.
John Gasser, owner of the shop today, says of the time, “The greats took a lot of time to learn how to do it right.”
