I love film. I can’t help it. I’m obsessed with the softness of the grain, the beautiful way it handles highlight and shadow, and the color translated on the emulsion. I know the science behind it – I studied it for years, hands deep in chemicals in middle-of-the-night darkroom marathons. But it still catches my breath when I think “wait… light can do that??” There’s been a lot of hype about the Contax 645 over the years. I finally got my hands on one for this shoot to really put it to the test. To see if it was really all it’s cracked up to be, or if everyone is just drinking the koolaid.
It turns out that Zeiss glass is magic.
So when six rolls of film landed in my inbox last night I found myself in editing heaven! The final fruit of our styled babymoon shoot extravaganza with Opihi Love is coming soon! But for now, I couldn’t not share this one sneak peek.
