Wedding photography is one of the most challenging genres out there, and given the pressure and lack of second chances, most photographers opt for high-end digital equipment to ensure the best chances of getting the shots they need. Given today's client expectations, can you still shoot a wedding on film? This neat video features a photographer taking you through his entire film photography kit for a wedding.
Coming to you from Benj Haisch, this interesting video discusses using film equipment for photographing weddings. Of course, wedding photographers shot on film for decades, so it is certainly possible to do so, but it is worth noting that in the digital age, client expectations have also changed, and as such, it is arguable that shooting on film today is a more difficult proposition. You certainly need to be strong in both your technique and creative vision, as you have fewer frames to work with and you can shoot as quickly. Nonetheless, a 6x7 negative is behemoth compared to even the largest digital sensors and is quite a sight to behold, so if you can pull it off, there is definitely an allure to doing so. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Haisch.
