Why Film?

I often get asked, why do you shoot film? Well because its amazing and the best, hahaha! No really it is. I started over a year ago trying to see if I could wrap my head around film, yes, “old school film”. It did not take long for me to fall in love with film and all of its beauty. The tones film provide can not be beat, the skin is creamy and the greens are minty. Soft and romantic with that magical pop of contrast. Digital images can be matched to appear similar to film and as a hybrid shooter I  have found their is a reason for both in my bag. Film handles highlights and bright lighting so much better than digital, however digital is better in low light. Above all things Film has made me be a better photographer as a whole, made me slow down, read light better, and made me see things in a whole new way. Film being perfectly imperfect is unlike digital in the fact that you can not just “fix it in photoshop”. Film makes you know your skill at a higher level and it challenges you as an artist. The Images below show both film on top SOOC Fuji 400 pushed and the lower digital SOOC! For my clients you will know your getting the best of both worlds and a better photographer because of film. Photographers, if you do not shoot film, I encourage you to try it!
