Today is Julia’s wedding! This is my personal favorite image that I captured during her bridal session last month.
Shot on Leica M6 with Kodak’s 400NC film
I really like that she isn't looking at the camera.
Question… any recommendations for a first film body?
bridal portraits are not shot on the wedding day?
Timeless Bryan. Classic and timeless. Kudos.
Awesome image – I really love the classic feel which the B&W further enhances!
Laura – I'd recommend the Canon EOS 3 or the Nikon F100 (depending on which system you use).
I would maybe go with something a bit more fun that is going to be a different look from your digital cameras. Often times I see photographers switching to film and their film images look the very similar to the digital images because they are shooting the same way. I would recommend a camera that forces a different approach like a LOMO or a Rolleiflex.
LOMO will run you about $250 and the Rollei would cost around $500-$1000 depending on the model.
You can't go wrong with the recommendations that Michael said as well. I used a Nikon N 90 and Canon 1V for years and I LOVE them.
But spurge on a LOMO and HAVE A BLAST!
Mariana,in the south brides often get a portrait made in their gown before the wedding day. we rarely do this but some brides really prefer this.
oh that´s interesting… a little strange though, I´ve always thought that brides have a special glow on their wedding day so it seems weird to take pictures in some other day. But definitely interesting. Thanks for the answer Bryan!
I´d love to try a lomo but i haven´t got money at the moment… though i´m still trying hard with my Vrederborch Felica! I haven´t forgotten I owe you a few scans, it´s just that I haven´t quite nailed it yet… I don´t know why, it´s just that the sun/cloudy aperture plus 25-50-B speeds are tricky and all my pictures are coming out too dark, I guess I need situations with a lot more light…
ps: hey i found this link where you can see the camera open, it´s such a beauty… http://camarantigua.cl/?p=160
