Entering Hybrid Waters – Chicago Film Photographer

Yes, I’ve been getting back to my film roots and shooting all our personal photos on film, but what I haven’t shared yet is that I have been dipping my toes in the hybrid digital + film shooting waters. By dipping my toes in, I mean I have been switching gears and grabbing a few frames here and there on film during my sessions. Sessions that are 95% digital, 5% film, just to see if it is something I want to incorporate back into my work. (I LOVE shooting film at home, but shooting film for my work is a whole ‘nother story, as it totally effects my workflow…getting film sent into a lab, processed, and scanned takes TIME…and I hate having to wait to share all the pretty photos with my couples. Granted, I’ve always had dreams of having my own darkroom one day…) So,  lately, it’s only been a few frames here and there so I can do a legit comparison of my digital versus film captures.

I’ve been thinking about which film camera to buy lately so I can start shooting some personal work too… I’m thinking of getting an F6 🙂

What film are you using for these? I’m always curious to see how stuff shoots in different scenarios!! Love those city at night pics!

Gorgeous, Amanda! There’s just something so magical about images on film. Keep it up, lady!
