I'm an award winning graphic designer, web designer and illustrator. I'm open for commission and freelance work. I rarely re-blog things, but some stuff catches my eye. Below are things I like and to the left are things I think. Choose wisely.
First model shoot in film with the lovely Lixi Love.
Shot these all with my Canon Rebel EOS 2000 with Ektar 100 color film by Kodak. It was a test shoot (I wanted to see how the film would work in low light), so there’s less shots than I would have liked. Next time that will be rectified.
Only editing done was on some particularly distracting dust spots, a couple small spot color corrections and slight playing with warmth. Otherwise it’s all the film.
Recently, I came into possession of a free Canon Rebel 2000 SLR. I had a few rolls over, and always wanted to go back into working with film. Luckily the Rally to Restore Sanity was coming up and I had a scanner I could scan photo negatives with.
To be honest, I like these results a lot better than what I get from digital. I like the warmth of the shots, the grain of ISO 400 film (Ilford Delta, fyi), as well as how little editing I need to do (the Ilford captures contrast much better than a digital photo, which requires a lot of touching up).
If you like these, keep an eye on my Flickr account, as I’m sure I’m going to do a lot more of this stuff. There’s already a lot more up there, so go now.
