Ever since I’ve shot my first wedding I’ve been dreaming of film! I’m obsessed with the look you can achieve with a film camera shooting different film stocks, but what I love the most is the feeling I get when I receive that email saying my film has been scanned and is ready for download. It’s needless to say that I’m also loving the no-editing part, too. Only a few tweaks and the images are ready to go. Through the years I came fairly close to matching my digitals to film … and as much as I still love shooting digital (and the luxury of getting to see photos immediately), I love film just a little bit more!! We are obviously still learning, but on our most recent session we focused way more on shooting film, rather than digital … and it turned out PERFECT.
I love the creaminess of these photos, the dreamy feel they have, how beautifully sharp every image is. But most of all I love the fact that I did a good majority of it in camera … I rated and metered correctly to get these results and my images only needed a few small tweaks that took me about 5 minutes for the whole gallery of photos! To see how my digitals compare to these, just visit the preview of this session I posted a while ago here.
