Who said that? I said something about " it can be argued that getting the photo right in the camera, is an art." You do want to get a slide right in the camera, don't you? I never implied that film and slides cannot be art. I also mentioned Ansel Adams being an artist. He used film.
I also said: "... the person who takes a snapshot without giving it any thought, and leaves it at that, is a photographer and not an artist." I stand by that, whether it's film, slide or digital.
"If I knew how to take a good photograph, I'd do it every time."
