    Another nasty storm on the horizon. This pic started out as a color infrared shot and I reworked it in black and white.

    This past year, I've shot photos at several weddings.

    It's fun, but can also be kind of stressful. I couldn't (and wouldn't want to) do it professionally.

    Thanks...I think? I do miss fooling around with film, candid shots and developing the film myself. If I remember correctly that photo was taken on 1950 Kodak 35 mm.

    Technically speaking I could do a decent job with weddings. I'm like you though Kai, I'm not sure I want to deal with the stress or have the fortitude to put up with a bridezilla. Of course a fair amount of tequila could fix that but I'm not sure how well anything else would go. LOL!

    Luckily, no bridezillas in the bunch. These are all friends/family, and the brides were really sweet and very pleasant to shoot.

    Really glad to have digital technology for this. I can't imagine the added stress of trying to shoot a wedding with film.

    you'd have burn through some rolls to do that for sure, multiple shots to make sure you nailed it etc

    I still have to work on my digitalization process, but here we go. Film was Ilford XP2 Super, shot with my Mamiya 645.

    Nice Szeph, lots of detail. They look a lot better than the last batch.

    I'm sitting on a roll of 3200 ASA film for night sky shots and landscapes. Ugh is this stuff expensive. I think I'll be using the DSLR as a really fancy light meter.

    will it meter differently on a crop sensor than a FF?

    No. But you have to compensate the different field of view due to the crop factor. And if we're really accurate, chances are that the ASA value of the film and the ISO value of the DSLR don't equal each other. Every camera maker has different opinions what means ISO 800 for example.

    Not so far, why?
    I have some filter for my Retina but none for the Mamiya. I think if I would, then a yellow filter for people photography, I like how it looks in Lightroom if using it digitaly. Green filter is my nightmare, it turns my dark skinned ex-gf from chocolate to charcoal.

    Did you already shoot some of the ASA 3200 stuff? I heard they typically are only really ASA 1000 but designed for push processing.
