One of the challenging things about shooting film for me is the unpredictable result. To avoid being totally in the dark about the outcome, I arranged the lighting with a digital camera beforehand.
Most modern digital cameras have a rather high contrast setting as their default, while in film the contrast is flat and built up through the scanning process/altered in photoshop. This means as much as I aim for accuracy, there is somewhat of a difference between the pre-setting of the digital camera and the actual result of film.
For this recent beauty session, I built my studio lights with a low contrast setting in Capture One to simulate scanned film. I found it to be decently successful in achieving the scanned film look with a digital camera.
Here are my favourite images from the session ;)
