You know, I can't really complain, been in technology most of my working life, even played my small part in helping to create this marvel of the modern world, the Internet.
I've been doing photography a shorter time, about 16 years. Early on used to do B&W in the darkroom, and became interested in a technique called dye transfer printing. Basically, you'd start with a color slide, copy it onto 3 separate B&W negatives through red, green and blue filters. Expose the negatives onto 3 separate sheets of a special film, develop these and then print them in register with cyan, magenta and yellow inks with excellent archival quality vs. standard color prints.
Never got to try it, as Kodak discontinued the materials.
Now there was a craft. Can you imagine all that trouble, now it only takes a few seconds to do the same thing?
Fortunately there are some old crafts that are still useful today, one which I practice, that being stonemasonry. It gives me that creative outlet that there used to be in the darkroom. Digital just doesn't do that for me. When film goes away it will be for good, we'll never have it back. Might be a good time to start collecting those classic prints. Seriously.
