Film Versus Digital Photography

March 5, 2015

By now, I’m pretty sure you all know that I adore film. I love the softness, the warmth, the creamy feel, and the romance it brings to every image. To me, the photos seem so alive. It is just different.

I put together a few more side by sides comparing a Canon 5d miii (with a few Nikon D600’s mixed in) and a Contax 645. The digital images have been edited to represent my typical style and the film images haven’t been touched – all straight from PhotoVision, shot on Portra 400.

Of course, I’m also bursting with excitement about the recent styled shoot that I photographed and I wanted to share a sneak peak. We had an incredible team of vendors and I’ll be blogging about the whole adventure soon. A huge thank you to Cassandra (Ever After Vintage Weddings) for helping me coordinate and style the session as well as Becky (Daly Digs), Marie (Hands on Sweets), Jaclyn, Catherine, and Mia (Marigold Flower Co), Stephanie (SMP Makeup Artistry), Sam (Signature Event Rentals), Hala and Billy as our models, Kat and Ethan as the flower girl and ring bearer and finally our helpers – Dominic, Chelsey, and Asha.

*2017 update – These were done before I knew about Mastin Labs – which helps photographers edit their digital photos to look like film images. My editing style has changed pretty significantly over the last few years.
