Film Photography Natural Skin Tones is why some many brides love the look associated with film. Testing a new camera before its put into service is compulsory, thus my beautiful wife Irma kindly posed on the beach for a few test shots, before sending the film rolls for processing.
Whilst I shoot digital images when documenting a wedding day, ceremony and reception, I also choose to shoot film during portrait sessions, location imagery and illustrating wedding details to give a true colour reference point to later work on my digital files. When the light is good the use of film really shines and has the unmistakable look of luxury, beautiful flattering skin tones and that dreamy feel.
So this second Contax passed the test and sits next to my other Film and digital cameras ready for the next wedding.
We used FUJI pro400H, Contax 645 Medium Format Camera and processing + digital scans by Richards Photo Lab in Los Angeles.
