I needed to test some film in a camera I fixed a few things on…actually two. So I shot some digital and film portraits with my friend, Angela, donning a lovely Saja Wedding dress over at Rixey Manor. This is a venue with a lot of character for a Charlottesville wedding photographer. I highly recommend a visit if you haven’t already.
Yes, it was a cold day so we stayed inside for most of it. But thank you to my wonderful friend for helping me work out the kinks! So I thought I would share a few of the images as well…I mean, why not? I also tried rings shots with all three. One of these cameras uses the same lenses as my Canon 5D mark iv. So it was fun to note the differences between the two cameras and how the film works verses the digital. I also spot meter with my mark iv in a very similar way as my film metering…and my antique hand held light meter.
While I am pretty pleased with the results, can you tell the difference? Editing with three cameras requires a good bit of perfecting my home-made Lightroom presets…and I am still working on it. I also used a diffused flash for some of the indoor lighting along with a mag diffuser.
On that note, I am also going to offer a special private coaching for Canon shooters who want to shoot more like film and perfect their editing to closely match without buying pre-made presets. So make sure you stay tuned if you are a photographer and a Canon shooter interested in the opportunity. I suggest signing up for the newsletter and turning on your alerts for Lieb Photographic on the instagram page as well.
