Here’s a little break from the vacation film photos.

These were from an afternoon out with my little test model–I’ve been working on them for a while, trying to decide if they are passable, stunning, or simply sacrilegious.

They were all processed in slightly different ways; some intentionally “filteresque”.

I won’t tell you which camera–but they were all the same one.




What do you think?

Is film worth all the extra uncertainty, effort, and expense over these examples?

(Maybe instead of generating so many negatives, I should just print more?)

    The first and last work the best for me. Ive been wondering the same type of thing lately. I’ve said in the past that if I could get my digital stuff to look like portra 400 I’d be pretty darn happy – but I’ve yet to figure that one out. I think film has a certain look, one that I think all of us are quite fond of here, but for color I’m finding that digital is too convienient. For black and white, the process is too fun for me so it’s still worth the effort. I love rangefinders, and if I had a digital M than I could see a world where color film woud be used less and less.

    In the end, after all that babling, I think the answer is to print more πŸ™‚

    I agree more or less with JKJOD: the first one is the best photo, and the last one has a really nice look.

    There are two extremes to choose from when using film for photographic purposes: cheap but time consuming; or expensive and easy (e.g. Richard Photo Lab). How nice of Kodak to sell us film but to leave us stranded when it comes to total solutions.
