I have a photo assignment from a television production company. It's a rush job and long story short, I now have a digital SLR.

Honestly though? I need to get back into the swing of digital photography. I have become so accustomed to look and feel of images shot with film, that after the first 100 or so images I took, I felt that all the talk about DSLR's was much ado about nothing.

Having switched from shooting in regular JPG-format to shooting in RAW, I'm much happier with the end result. Normally, I scan an image, adjust the levels, use the Unsharpen Mask, and I'm a happy camper. A little more time will have to go into image editing now. But that's okay. It wouldn't be such a bad idea to learn a few new Photoshop tricks.

I can't deny the number of ways that this camera will benefit me work wise. A lot of our clients have the patience and attention span of a gnat. Instant gratification is going to make for some very happy customers.

Even still, at the end of the day, clients aside and as long as I'm able, I will remain true to what I love - film. No matter the amount of megapixels.
