From the Jen Lynne Blog: With the launch of my new business and branding, I also added something new to my packages.. film photography! You are probably asking why film, right? Well, I have spent a lot of time thinking about how to explain my love for it, and before you start to think I am nuts for wanting to go back to shooting film, I want to tell you a little about how I see it:
To me, there is something about film that feels timeless, authentic and romantic. Yes, it is true, we have come a long way with digital cameras and we are very close to getting that “film” look with the lenses available to us. However, in my opinion, there is one huge difference, the colors. No matter how expensive your digital camera may be, and no matter how much time you spend in photoshop trying to replicate it, you won’t be able to get the same color flow from digital that you can on film.
Now a lot of people might disagree with me, and I am ok with that. The fact is that I will probably always be a digital shooter myself! Film brings a certain element and quality that you just can’t get from a digital camera.
