    I'm always going to be into the real prints. Digital is fine and all but they just feel sorta souless to me. Having that tangible photo in your hands feels like a real trophy.

    I've got a HUGE collection of photos but sadly, i never trade my flicks. Sometimes I make doubles as gifts for people but my flicks are more or less mine.

    i like what Lens said..I feel like i cheated when i get digital prints.35mm is the way to go for the best picture if you ask me..

    As for trading i do it.I have a huge collection a rough number is something like this 19 albums of walls and 15 of freights.Each album has about 200 pics in it.That is not counting the 90 plus rolls of film i have to develop.That is the shit that kills me if developing the photos..I could have bought a new car if i saved all that money.Of well at least it is something i love

    i've got no problem with digital, as long as the resolution isnt obnoxiously huge or too small to see what it is. infact, i prefer digital. i dont need more stuff crowding up my room, its a mess as it is. plus digital is vegan, earns a thumbs up from me.

    i'm in that old school state of mind. i need to hold the picture. 35mm forever. i don't get to see my flix right away or ask myself if i got that moving throw up, yeah that's one of the perks to digi, you know right away if you got it or not. but holding neg/pos film after it is develop is like holding gold to me (can't afford platnium, lol).

    i used to trade with a bunch of people but i just couldn't keep up with all the correspondance. it's almost like having another job. but i should get back into trading cause all my extras is building up, maybe like 3 or 4 thousand at least.

    I dunno about trading.....it's great and all to get a copy of some hard to find art or something someone else was able to get but you didn't because it got buffed hella quick but.......

    ....to me, i like getting the flicks myself. I liken it to having someone else shoot a big game animal for you and then you get to mount the head in your living room. It looks cool but it lacks a certain...lustre. Much cooler to get the flicks yourself but like i said, sometimes trading has it's advantages.

    But yeah, like I said, i'm too greedy to trade my flicks.
