Film

A few weeks ago I got the assignment to write an article about 10 of the best analog compact cameras the history of photography has witnessed. I wrote it. And it got published in the online photography site QUESABESDE. It is written in Spanish. If you want to take a look at it, just click HERE or in the screen capture below. You might like it.

I had a shooting yesterday, with model Valentina. She is great to work with. She looks gorgeous, she is professional and friendly and has this awesome smile born to be on TVs, movies or fashion editorials.

I took my usual stuff to the shooting: Canon 5D Mark II with some prime lenses (50 mm being the one I use the most), light equipment and so on. But before leaving home I thought: why not taking the Fujifilm Instax 210 and the Fujifilm Instax 50s? I had a couple of film cartridges to use and I thought it was the perfect day and shooting to use them.

We took more than 800 digital pictures with the 5D and none of them can compare to the magic and feel we got with the more than 20 images we got the both the Fuji Instax 210 and the 50s. Shooting with film is great. Shooting with those cameras was awesome. And I think Valentina look even better in film than in digital. Well, she always looks good, it doesn’t really matter if you use film or digital sensors.

Here are some photos of yesterday shooting. As you can imagine, there is no digital editing at all on any image. I just scanned them and posted them right here.
