COLORS OF FILM & DIGITAL PHOTOS





It's funny how one of my favorite photographers also happens to be my sister...go figure?!  Well, the other evening she did a fun, on the whim photo shoot with my little S. After seeing these UNEDITED photos taken with her two cameras, I asked her to share some tips about film vs. digital. I couldn't help but fall in love with the film photos, they look so timeless! So here are the images, and a little tid bit from Rachael about the pros and cons of these two techniques.
I must say, **sigh** this little gal of mine just takes my breath away. Rachy, you captured her perfectly. :-)



"All these images are unedited to give you an exact idea of how film photos looks vs. how digital photos look. The film photographs were shot on an old Canon FTb camera with a 50mm lens attatched. The digital photographs were shot on a Canon 7d with a 50mm lens attatched as well. To also give you an idea on the lighting... I used a reflector to light her face and shot at 400 iso - 2.8mm - 1/1000 shutter speed.

If you have an questions or want suggestions on lighting/camera equipment feel free to email me at rachaelmccallphoto@gmail.com"

  2. I remember having film cameras, but I was pretty young...so I really didn't get to shoot as a photographer with them. Just basically normal shots. Nothing artsy. However, I've always heard that if you can shoot in film, you can shoot anything.

    1. I know, I thought the same thing. Film has gotten to be so "old school" that I am thinking it should come back! Even though digital is super convenient! :-)

    1. Hey Ashley, film I guess is more old school than I thought?!?! ha I sat here trying to figure out how to explain it--so in nifty terms Photographic film is a chemically reactive material that records a fixed or still image when the film is exposed to light. Or in more simple terms its the little round tube you put inside your camera in order to save and develop photographs. :-)

  18. Great blog! I enjoyed this post. I was actually contemplating the differences between film and digital photography myself the other day after seeing a friend's photo album of pictures taken with film. There's some sort of elegance and softness in film that digital photographs can't emulate (without much post-processing, that is!).
