At last weeks wedding, I had the opportunity to shoot a couple of rolls of film durring the wedding. Although I began shooting weddings years ago on film, and I have shot tens of thousands of images on film, I haven’t shot any film in over two years. However I love film. I love the look of film, I love the smell of film, and I even love the challange of shooting film. It is much more difficult to shoot film than digital, because you cannot see your image. With digital, you can see right away if your exposure was right or wrong. With film, you need to know exactly how your meter works, how to judge a scene, and set your camera to get the photo right the first time. It is sort of like working without a net. If you don’t get the settings exactly right, then you don’t get that image because you won’t know for a couple of days.
I shot a Kodak print film, 400ASA speed. It worked pretty good, but I don’t really like the grain structrue, so I will keep trying different films.
Here are a couple of my favorite shots from the day I got on good ol’ film.
