Beautiful awesome day again! So on my birthday I choose to do a fine art wedding or themed shoot. One that I focus more on the timeless subtle connections, emotions, expressions, objects, fashion etc. I focus on what is going on before me and what is meaningful and relevant. To me, to the subject(s) and to the culture and history of my time and for posterity to come.
I therefore choose simple gear with a bit of aged sensor technology or gear with absolute simplicity in operation. These sensors were engineered with longevity in mind and attention to handling true colours especially in the oranges and reds.
Every human skin has red and orange tones in it. Different sensors and registers it differently. Some modern sensors render colours so much saturated. "But there is RAW?!" But RAW has its biases too inherent in the image. That brings me to the LOOK part of the sensor.__
Each sensor has an aesthetic to it. An aesthetic is simply the way images from that camera appear to the eyes and the feeling it sometimes give. Don't worry if you don't see differences in images or don't care. We are all different ahahahahaa😂
Old sensors have a certain aesthetic appeal to the images. Images don't come out extremely sharp nd perfect. Images don't look clinical as I call it. They simply don't look perfect. Electronic. Machine. Images have that 'real' look. Sensor noise looks organic too and not that distracting. Usually because of fewer megapixels (maximum I use is 12 on such cameras). The sensor size, and its light photosites' size matter more to me than the quantity. A quality sensor with fewer pixel count renders light and colour beautifully. Paired with a quality glass with character, images are simply awesome!
Ok, so today, I choose a wedding. And am shooting with a Canon Rebel 400D (10mp), a Canon 10D (6mp), dlux point and shoot(13mp) and a vivitar film camera. Lenses are a 50mm f1.2, 200mm f2.8, 40mm f2.8 and a 24-75mm equivalent lens on the point and shoot. Am using a fujicolor speed 200 sensitivity colour film. Cheers!
