| p.1 #9 · Help me decide- film shooting |
Although I shoot quite a bit of it, my film usage is pretty much limited to recreational shooting....with some film mixed in for portraits, headshots, engagement sessions, etc.
How much film do you plan on shooting? That would be the first thing to consider. I think volume is a bigger factor than what format(s) you decide to shoot. If you plan to shoot a lot of film for work (including weddings), then maybe the minilab would be something to consider. If you don't anticipate a huge an increase in volume over what you're doing right now, I'd stick to shooting whatever format you like and developing by hand. Either way, the price of film is going to continue to rise and certain film stocks will disappear altogether, at which point you'll have to decide whether it's feasible (financially) to shoot film at all.
