Film vs Digital Photography | Contax 645 with Zeiss 80mm Fuji400H | Nikon D750

I do get quite a few enquiries regarding the difference between film and digital. It actually depends on how you use film photography's full strengths and benefit. 

Film photography creates amazing colours, with the right camera and lens, you can create the dreamy and almost painterly look. For the photo comparison below, because its a wide and partially a landscape shot, it doesnt look as dreamy as a close up shot. But you can see the colour difference between both. Although its personal preference, but I do love the skin tones of film a lot.

I will be updating more examples soon.

The Dream Wedding at Chateau Grand Luce in France | France Wedding Photographer

I love destination weddings and pre-weddings, especially when its in France at the amazing Chateau Grand Luce with the dream team destination Wedding Planner - Matthew Oliver Weddings, Wedding Videographer - HD Moments and Florist - White Lilac. Working with this amazing crew that makes the dream become reality is such an awesome experience.

Just a few interior shot of this breathtaking venue to share. This French Chateau is definitely one of the favourite choices for a destination wedding in France. 

After capturing this amazing in France, I went on to Paris to capture the amazing couple's pre-wedding or post-wedding photography. WIth Eiffel tower and Louvre Musee in the backdrop, it was like a dream came true.

Film Vs Digital Photography | Destination Wedding Photographer based in Bunbury, Margaret River & Perth Australia.

I started shooting film a few months ago because I just love how the pasterly tones, dreamy and almost painterly look that film can create. Not to mention, the old school sound and loading of film gets me all excited about it (somehow, cant explain it!)

I still love shooting digital because of the new technology that allows me to capture spontaneous moments, moment between moments, candid and journalistic photos quickly. Also knowing what I have captured gives me the confidence to know what I have captured and allowed me to check for improvements straight away.

As much as I love shooting 100% film weddings, I think the best option is to have the best of both worlds. Digital to capture quick candids and moments while film allows me to slow down and capture some nice dreamy portraits and wedding day details. That is why I am offering the Hybrid  Photography, the combination of 2 formats, the best of both worlds!

Of course, every wedding is different, but I would say I shoot approx 80% digital and 20% film for Hybrid photography. 

Do check out some of the comparison photos below.
