A Film Photographer

This is my first entry: "A Film Photographer".

Film, because I am native of traditional photography, and although I make use of the digital technology in part of my work, the body of it is in physical support. On film.

I take this opportunity to talk about the difference between the "analog" and the film concepts.

The analogy arises mainly in the world of audio and video, which initially or "traditionally" were recorded on magnetic media, so the devices captured the "analog signals" and then transfer them to a reproduction system.

With the appearance of computers arises the "digital" unit of the bits. Zeros and ones that combined formed a set of information or bytes. The digital age had begun.

This involved the transfer, conversion and generation of digital sounds and images, so to differentiate them from the old ones, they were called "analog". Analog image, analog sound, etc.

Hence, everything that is not digital is analog.
