I started photography shooting film ages ago. Once I moved on to digital I didn't really look back for awhile. However over the years I have dipped my toes back into the film world here and there. Some films just have such a beautiful look to them that you really don't need to edit the photos at all.
The major draw back to shooting film is it is expensive! I couldn't image what the cost of film and processing would be for shooting a whole wedding on film, but I'm sure the price would be astronomical! I wouldn't mind trying to shoot a film wedding one day, but I suppose it would have to be at the clients request and I really don't even know if that is something brides would be after. Maybe if it was 6X7 medium format, then I could see someone wanting those type of picture and be willing to pay for them.
Anyhow, I shot this portrait of my friend Shannon in Calgary. I shot it with a Nikon F4 & 70-200mm f/2.8 using Kodak Ektar 100 35mm film.
