Fantastic colors and expressions! Love the whole post. What a great wedding!

You should begin posting which cameras and film you use for each :) as a reference. Just bought a Fuji like the one you use and still learning the best film/exposure for it. Sometimes the F4 is short...

Love it! I love how the rings were seated perfectly on the cake, it's so creative. I also like the indoor shots with the blue-ish window which fits perfectly into the color theme, it's brilliant!! If you don't mind sharing your photo secret, is that using tungsten indoors and white balanced for tungsten?

Thanks!
@Ana, We almost always are shooting Nikon primes, except on our med format stuff; which will be either Mamiya C330 (6x6), or Contax 645, or sometimes the Fuji.
As for film; it's the Fuji all the way. Reala, 400H, 800Z, and Neopan are were it's at. We also like to use the Illford Delta 3200 on med format, and Fujichrome 64T for X processed.

@KameraKevin, You hit the nail right on the head. We love balancing out unnatural color temps to skew the white light. You just need to make sure you have plenty of exposure, cuz an underexposed neg is much more difficult to make extreme adjustments on. The key also is to have the color corrections made in the scanning process, rather than in post. Have you tried that good lab out yet?

KameraKevin said...

@Brian: Thanks for the info! I haven't used the lab yet. I'll get to it soon!

For the indoor shots, do you shoot in regular daylight film, then just ask them to scan in tungsten? What happens if you mixed both daylight and indoors on the film? Also, for indoors what film do you use? I often find that for indoors at ISO 400, I'm already at f/2 and 1/30 sec which is pretty darn slow for comfort...

Ana said...

Thanks for the feedback Brian.
Whatever you use, I'm a fan of your work now :) And I agrre with the colors, they are just great!

@KameraKevin
We use daylight balanced negative film indoors and color correct in scanning. Film does a much better job in mixed light at keeping smooth subtle colors with detail than digital. We use Fuji 400H & 800Z indoors and shoot regularly at f/1.4 & 1/30s with consistently sharp results.

@Ana
Try metering for shadows and when in doubt, overexpose up to 2 stops! :)
