    i've heard that gelatine is widely used in photography...i but i don't know much about it or even if its true. i'm getting interested in photography...any ways (perferably cheap) to avoid using gelatine? hmmmm....i don't even know how its used in the process.

    Gelatin is used in camera film. Some veg*ns choose to use digital cameras, which use no film, instead. The price of beginner-level digital cameras has decreased significantly.

    It just depends on where you draw the line.

    yea, it's used in the emulsion side of film; the silver (at least i'm pretty sure they're silver...) particles are suspended in it. it's a pain in the ass. especially cuz i don't have a choice but to use film in photography class - we aren't allowed to take digital pictures. thing is though that gelatin is in so many things, some which you can avoid and some which you can't. i've heard it's used in car tires. i try to avoid gelatin as much as i can but it's impossible to avoid it all the time, and it's next to impossible to know what it's in and what it isn't.

    and when i read the name of this post i thought it said 'gelatine in pornography'. wow i own.
