Who doesn't love film photography? Who doesn't love the convenience of digital? Why not have both?
Brought to you by Kyle McDougall, this video runs through five tips, tricks, and techniques for emulating the "film look" through your digital work. Kyle has really been leading the charge on blending the use of both film and digital when most of the photography world has stuck to one or other, occasionally bouncing between the two. As such, it was really nice to hear about his approach to making one cohesive portfolio of work, regardless of the medium.
In all honesty, I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with emulating film in my digital work. I've largely come to love the look of different film stocks (particularly Kodak Portra 800) and even as I move towards shooting more digital, I still want my photographs to look the same. Conversely, if I really wanted my photograph to look like it was taken on film, I would/should just shoot it on film. That being said, film is expensive and not always a practical thing to shoot, so knowing how to emulate it is a worthwhile thing if you enjoy the look.
