    Just shot my first 100% analog wedding!

    So yesterday I shot a wedding using only my two F100's, a 24mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.4, Kodak Portra 400 and Kodak BW400CN. Oh my gosh how liberating! Got the film processed today and it looks fantastic!!!!

    I am just so excited about this and I can't wait to add more pictures once I get permission, but here's two just to show something:



    Has anyone else gone to a film workflow after shooting digitally? After yesterday, and seeing the film today, I can't imagine shooting digital again for this unless it's really just too damn dark for film.

    You know about Fuji 1600 right? It can take a full stop plus of under exposure and still look good when processed normally.

    Not being rude, just trying to keep you on the straight and narrow. I'm a Kodak shooter, but right tool for the job and all that.

    Congratulations!

    I used a 1600 speed Fuji film about 5 years ago once, and the results were just awful. Can't remember what the name of the film was, but it was at my HS graduation. I might try something like TMAX 3200 @ 1600, or see how Portra 800 and BW400CN push. The thing is that actual B&W film IMO doesn't look good anywhere outside the darkroom. They scan terribly most of the time, and the BW400CN is much better in that dept when on a Frontier or Noritsu.

    It's just that in the past, to be able to balance flash and ambient, i've been in situations where I was at f/1.4 and ISO 6400 on my D700. It would be tough to do that using film.

    Anywho, here's a couple more shots from the other day!

    Very beautiful. I am so digging the color shots, specially the sunflower. i I think the new Portra can be pushed to 800 or above, I saw it in a blog once, the guy rated it to 1600 and it still looks good.

    Portra 400 can be pushed and pulled to the max with still amazing results. I've seen shots on Portra 400 exposed at 3200, and pushed just one stop during development. fantastic shots all!

    As for high speed b/w, thoughts on Ilford Delta 3200?

    For 1600speed B&W, I have had good results with Tmax400 pushed. Other people get good results with Tri-X pushed. I mostly make prints in the darkroom, but have no problem scanning Tmax400 with my Epson v700. Don't use Tri-X but imagine it should also scan well.

    Keep it up! At my wedding 10 years ago, I had one photographer shoot the normal color stuff and groups, and had a second photographer shooting B&W film (tmax 400 pushed) only which I processed myself.
