kodak portra 400 b&w (push 1)
canon fd 100mm f/2
i need to get me some of that film. these porta shots are just beautiful. they remind me of movie stills. amazing work matto. ;-)
Yeah, there's definitely something of the quality of a film still to this great shot. Maybe it's the 'classic' profiles they both have .
Wow, Matt -- beautiful -- reminds me of a Jacques-Henri Lartigue. The richness and depth you achieved in this wonderful photo make me want to throw the digital in the trash.
i called this one 'cinematographic' for two reasons: one, it is. and two, Jason from the site cinematographic.net had just left me a nice comment on a previous post when i was trying to figure out a name for this one :)
your_waitress: yes you really should check this film out, it's making me happy. i have a roll on the go that i've pushed three stops, we'll see how that turns out. i'm guessing it will be icky.
kathleen: lartigue? wowzers. i just saw a show of him this summer... beautiful.
oh and kathleen? do it! throw the digital in the trash!! or rather, don't bother upgrading your nikon for a while... spend that money on a nice film camera and a years worth of film. you absolutely won't regret it.
heh, i'm being a comment hog on my own comments...
i just wanted to mention this lens i just got is wonderful too. it's a beat up old canon 100mm f/2 and it is a pure genius lens. it seems to always know just what to do.
~once again, very appealing tonal range...interesting crop and fg blur, the gentleman in the fg is not a distraction to the two main subjects~
