Hello Steve, I love your photo skies taken with the iPhone. Do you prefer working with the analog or the digital camera?Which one would you suggests as more ‘beginner friendly’?

Digital is more beginner friendly because it’s a lot cheaper and you see your results instantly.

I like the accidents that can occur with real film because it reacts to light very differently and is somewhat unpredictable. Saying that though, there are quite a few accidents in this image taken today with an iPhone and tweaked in Snapseed. Obviously it’s not how things looked at the time but the composition was exactly as it appears, a reflection in a window caused by a dark area. The light is essentially the same, just more contrast and switched to monochrome. In digitising negatives from an analog camera you end up with the same level of flexibility in experimenting on an image so ultimately I guess it’s down to your own creatively and having an eye for composition. The one thing I do prefer is to look through a viewfinder which gives the sense you’re on the inside looking out.
