This is MUCH easier to do with digital!
My goals here were to capture the early morning colors AND the reflection of the lighthouse beam on the water which only lasts a second or two. With digital that is no big deal. you shoot and see if it's there. If not, you wait for it to come around, and shoot again. With this film stuff you shoot three or four frames and hope. Then you wait for the lab to open. Then you drop it off and wait some more. Finally you get the film and scans back and pop the disc in the computer and say, "Ain't that dandy," or, in the alternative, "Ah $hit," and if the latter, hope and wait for the next perfect dawn which happen about once every six months.
All things considered, I like the "arty" quality of film, but I'm not sure it's worth all the work and time.
As it happens, this one was of the dandy variety.
But then again would this flower look quite as good in digital? I don't think so.
Or this shot of the Yosemite Valley?
The picture above was re-worked in Adobe Lightroom. It was seriously under-exposed. The sky was a washed out milky white without a hint of color. But to restore the natural sky color in PS would have blackened the foreground. In Lightroom there is a feature for bringing up foreground light without impacting the overall exposure. So I darkened the exposure and then brought up the foreground. Very quick, simple and neat. Rather remarkable program.
