    Hi guys,

    I’m currently undertaking a university project looking into how new, digital-based photography is effecting the traditional methods/processes of film-based photography.

    It would be great to get some of your professional opinions to aid my research. Below there are 6 questions, and any response would be great and much appreciated!

    Thank you!

    1) Do you find that most of your customers come here looking for digital related products or advice, as opposed to traditional film photography products? Roughly what percentage is digital?

    2) What are your personal views on digital photography? For example do you feel like it devalues the traditional processes of photography, or does it enhance the medium of photography as it’s now easier for people to become involved?

    3) Do you think digital photography is casing the death of traditional ‘dark room’ methods and chemical processes. If so, is it redefining what photography means?

    4) Do you think photo manipulation is ‘cheating’ in that some people might think it takes away the skill from the photographer?

    5) Do you think digital cameras will ever fully replace film-based cameras?

    6) Finally, would you say that the digitisation of photography is overall a positive thing, or a negative thing?
