In the age of digital it is unusual to use an 'old school' technology. Not as unusual as you might think though. Film is making a resurgence, as are the traditional darkroom and alternative processes in creating print based images.
The main reason to shoot film is in the 'slowing down' of the whole picture making process. Through this you are connected in a much more tangible way to the end result. If that end result is a physical print, been able to handle that and see the depth that you can only get with traditional techniques elicits responses not attainable through other means.

For almost 18 months now I have toyed with the idea of selling my Sony A7r mirrorless 36mp digital camera. I had initially bought this body around four years previously for the sole purpose of using legacy lenses, as it had the greatest range of 3rd party adaptors on the market available. It did that admirably...
I've chosen a position on one of our outbuildings to mount the camera. A simple shelf created from a scrap piece of Larch is screwed to the soffit boards of the shed. I have gone with a simple piece of 10mm elastic bungee which is pretty strong to hold the camera in place, it in turn is fixed to the edge of the shelf on each side.
