there are only so few differences between film and digital photography. Your eye, your imagination, the right moment and good composition still reign supreme. Aperture still controls depth of field. Areas in-focus and out-of-focus and their relation to each other. Colors, contrasts, lines, areas. Shutter speed still controls blur vs. sharpness for moving subjects. Visual isolation vs. inclusion of context.
Things to plan and keep in mind before taking a shot, while taking a shot and processing an image once its captured.
Differences? Much faster learning curve. Instant and full feedback - visually and with all capture-relevant data. Seeing, whether something worked or not ... immediately ... not only days or weeks later.
Painting with light, converting photons directly into electronic images, rather than having to take the cumbersome, indirect route of transforming light-sensitive chemical substances from one state to another.
Absolutely fantastic. No nostalgia whatsoever. I don't want to be a chemical laboratory worker. I don't want to be an optician. I don't want to be camera-machine operator. All I want, is to capture and create images with technology as simple, effective and unobtrusive as possible. We've com,e a long ways towards that goal. So glad I live in the digital age.
