This is a decision I had to ponder myself as well. Is it worth adding a Contax to the arsenal and shooting weddings on film? I would like to present my honest view of film vs. I have not had a fabulously great lab develop any of my film work, only a local lab with mixed results. I have never shot film for any of my professional work, only my personal projects.
But I am an ardent admirer of a few great pro film photographers and a continuous student of photography — both in the film and digital arenas. Film Nikon FM2 Nikkor 50mm 1. Then Camp C who use or at least tolerate both, and admit that both formats have strengths and weaknesses.
Speaking in terms of my professional work, I would define myself somewhere between Camp B and C. After playing around with film a bit myself and studying the work of other photographers, I can definitely acknowledge that film has several advantages over digital — mainly, the dynamic range or, ability to retain details in highlights and shadows over a wide range of stopsand also the forgiving nature of film when you overexpose it.
In my opinion, I think digital has only one major weakness when compared to film, and that is dynamic range. Your digital camera simply will not handle light as well as film does, and the light will not look as soft and even as it does with film.
But I think this problem will improve over time with digital cameras, as newer models with better sensors are developed. You can already compensate this weakness by shooting in RAW format to maximize the recovery of details in highlights and shadows, and by working on improving yourself technically so that you achieve more consistently precise exposure.
Digital Nikon D Nikkor mm 2. But what about those beautiful filmy colors? This is where post-processing comes in, and where I personally found my tipping point that made me stick with digital.
Every film image is processed by the lab that develops it, and is color corrected during the scanning process — and sometimes also in the initial developing process for example, push or pull processing, or cross processing.
Digital images need developing work too, in order to get optimal results. And with a bit of post processing, I find that I can replicate or interpret this vision with some of my digital work, where it suits.
But with a bit of Lightroom or Photoshop I can capture the essence of what I love about the looks of film in general, with my own artistic stamp.
I enjoy having creative control over how I want my colors to look for each individual session that I shoot, rather than handing that control to a lab.
One of the most important steps in post-processing a digital image to replicate film is to carefully control the light and the highlights. In my normal workflow, I first develop my RAW file in Lightroom, either with a preset or with individual tweaks such as highlight recovery and exposure correction.
