Here’s another portrait that I shot at the latest Drink and Click. We had at least two Sarahs at the event. We had Sarah the Photographer, who I posted yesterday and Sarah the model here today. I shot today’s photo with the same Olympus PEN-F and 25mm f1.4 lens that I used yesterday and with the same grainy black and white mode. It came out great and I was going to post that one, but decided to experiment a little.
The PEN-F has a neat effects dial where you can preset a look, which is saved in JPEG. I shot this image in both RAW and JPEG so that I had the option of playing with the full color RAW image. I experimented with film effects in post processing and I like this one. It nicely brings out the blue in Sarah’s eyes.
Did you hear that Kodak is bringing back Ektachrome film? It was announced on Thursday, the same day I shot this image. It just so happens that this film preset simulates a 1970s style Ektachrome, which emphasizes blues. I’m not enough of a film expert, especially with Ektacrhome, to judge the accuracy of this conversion. I do, however, like the way this looks.
