The film look – do you like it?

It is an ironic fact of the photography world that after almost all professional photographers have switched to film, so many spend hours trying to get ‘the film look’ for their digital images. It’s not something I do often, as I love the contrast and punchy colours that you get with digital, the post processing options and the instant image feedback of an LCD on the back of the camera. For a moment of nostalgia I enjoy it though…

If you like the film look there are options that will save you having to spend hours in photoshop altering saturation and toning etc.

Alienskin make the incredible ‘Exposure’ software as a plug in for Photoshop – check out their examples page.

I would be really interested to know if any of you still shoot with film, let me know…
