p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · A & N /// Hybrid Film Digi Wedding


This was a doozy. Amazing wedding, amazing couple, hired us specifically to shoot film and digital for their engagement and wedding.
This was the absolute most no nonsense wedding we have ever done. We flew in to Minneapolis the day of the wedding (we had a wedding the day before as well). I was kind of under the weather with terrible allergies but managed to get enough claritin in me to be alright. We shot from 12pm until around 11 and did 3x more stuff in that amount of time than we do on most normal wedding days. Instead of speeches they had an "academy awards" ceremony for guests and handed out prizes for various things. They were sooo laid back and easy going and just rocked the whole day.
If we could shoot this type of couple and wedding every time I would be in heaven.

Film stuff was a mix of HP5, TriX, Tmax, Fuji 400h, Portra 160 and 400. Film cameras used: Mamiya Pro TL with 80 1.9, Nikon F100, Graflex Super D with don't remember lens.







I will try to keep this short. More on the blog of course.

It's not really that hard to come by...
New labs are opening all the time because of the resurgence of film. The lab I use has like a 4-6 week turn around time because they are so busy. I do all of my own BW developing but color is still sent out. The only thing that is frustrating is that the film shooters sometimes insist upon the really pastel colors etc that you can get with the proper developing and scanning of portra and 400h. I tend to go for a more natural look. My guy at the lab is always joking around about "pastel this" and "pastel that". I think 99% of his clients request that look.

Love it! How do you like your Mamiya? I've been planning to get one to try out medium format.

I like the Mamiya ok... The 80 1.9 is an amazing lens and deadly sharp wide open. BUT if you do not have a really nice matte screen focusing can be kind of a pain in low light especially if you are shooting wide open. My screen is a split prism and is kind of finicky. I just purchased a Mamiya 6 because I want the ability to focus accurately in all situations. The Mamy 6 lenses are slower but I have been shooting more stopped down anyway. Shooting at 1.9 with an 80 is tough. It is cool for portraits when you can nail focus for general reportage during the wedding the Pro TL is kinda clunky.

Thanks! Appreciate the insight.

Getting back to the film-digital hybrid topic: how do you personally approach pricing for this kind of coverage? Do you simply add the cost of film and processing, or some other way.

As of right now we have packages with hybrid coverage built in. Most weddings I will shoot about 1/3 film no matter what. They specifically wanted film coverage so I shot film almost exclusively that day. I shot about 150-200 in film and then processing was about 250$. The package they purchased had the cost of all that built in. The time I save in processing almost makes up for it though.

I am hoping now with the Mamiya 6 I can cover most of the getting ready stuff in BW film and then do all the processing and scanning myself. I have been experimenting with pushing various films to ultra high ISO by using microphen developer and have had great results so far.

Like this set a lot. The only thing Ill mention on the critique side is #9; she may not like the clarity/lines in her face in that one.

Thanks guys! I am thinking about having 19 printed either 16x20 or 20x30. Real prints are so freaking expensive.
Scott ... I hear you on the clarity.. It is one of the few instances when the 80 1.9 nailed the focus perfectly and everything turned out uber sharp. I debated doing something to it in PS but could not bring myself to PS a film shot.
