Shots and Thoughts

Photos and comments as I explore my passion for photography. Written to and for myself as a journal to track major moments and minor observations as I continue to evolve my visual art. 

Film, Maybe....

Elysia was kind enough to model for me as I wanted to try some portrait style shots with film.

Pleasantly surprised that 95% of these shots came out OK. It was starting to rain and thus got dark early so most shot wide open at ISO 400. Technically they seem OK and carry that film vibe.

Pro tip: I am still on the fence for shooting film vs digital. I read this week where the emotional side of a photo can come via the post processing and this is where film has a real look. But it is also like shooting JPEGs, very little post processing can be done on the image. The flow is also different in shooting with film. Still on the fence if I should do a film project. Hmmm....
