Personal Quote: the ones who gain the most are the ones the gain nothing at all
Film is one of the most interesting mediums an artist uses. It is impossible to see if you have used it right or if you have processed it correctly until the very end. Its as if you trust your art to chance and faith. Even if you do master capturing light with a camera and know exactly how you want to process it there is still a chance that the photo will not achieve what you expect it to. In a way this creates a sense of wonder at each new image you take with film. If you took the same picture with a DSLR you'd get instant gratification with the picture appearing on the LED screen. Then if it turned out poorly you can always adjust to find exactly what you are looking for. Hell even if you run out of the proper light you can always take it to a computer and edit it until you are happy with it. But this process takes a very specific part of photography away from the art, the accident. With a DSLR you take and take and take until you have exactly what you are looking for, but with film, like a said, pictures don't always come out the way you expect them to. Sure out of 100 tries to get what you want you only get 2 good ones and 97 junk, but then one more. One more that wasn't what you expected, but shows you some other way to take pictures and can give you more inspiration than you had when you started the shoot. That is what makes film special.
