This image is an example of a beauty fashion shot taken on analog film and the detail captured is incredible. The Epson Scanner does a great job of resolving the fine detail in the portra film. The subtle tones work well for skin and overall the image is beautiful when compared to digital counterparts. The Schneider lens is much sharper than any nikon or Canon lens commonly found amongst other photographers. The horseman demands a much slower workflow which seems to help when composing great shots.
It's obvious that the degree from university of bolton helped create a love of analog film. Digital can be harsh when shooting fashion. Smooth lines are great and subtle tones are even better. Enquire within for more details. at firstname.lastname@example.org for more.
