Saugerties, Kingston Wedding Photographer on Film | Aperture Photography

The 4:5 format of Medium format film is a format many pros have never shot in. Aperture Photography  was  booked for a wedding today that will be all film !  The bride and groom are in the entertainment world and love the look and texture of Medium Format film.  I have been shooting film for 20 years.  In the last 7 or so years almost all digital.  They both are wonderful, but so different.  I will be using  Kodak Portra Film.  I love the skin tones and pastel  look.  The 4:5 format is very different from the digitals 3:2.  My camera of choice will be a Contax 645.  The thin depth of field and blurred  background  in the right light and printed on the right paper looks a bit like a painting.  Because of the expense of film and film processing is quite high it forces you to be very precise.  Since I shot professionally on film for so long it will not be difficult for me, but it sure is exciting.  We are planning 3 locations.  The streets of Saugerties, The Saugerties lighthouse and the Kaaterskill Falls in Catskill. Aperture Photography  photographs weddings in the Hudson Valley, Albany, Poughkeepsie and New York City.  Stop by our web site and take a look.  http://aperturephoto.com
