I love physical media to star with : I've always prefered a physical print to a digital file. Maybe it's my background as an art historian, who saw dozen of paintings made centuries ago still visible today. When you take a picture on film, it has a physical existence from the start. The image is there, carved in the chemicals by light. Each following steps, from processing to printing, only reinforce this physical existence.
When you shoot digitial, making the image real is a choice. With film, it's real from thet start
