Film versus Digital for WeddingsWritten by Juan Carlos Torres
As a professional Oregon wedding photographer I get this question asked more than anything else. Rarely will somebody ask me about my wedding photography education, awards, or professional memberships. I believe root to this question lies on misinformation about different qualities of film and digital.
For a photographer with no computer experience or who does not want to spend time correcting digital files film is way to go. Film allows photographer to photograph a wedding or event and at end of day be done with process. When time comes to print photographs photo lab will take care of color balance adjustments and retouching. From a technical aspect film has a wider dynamic range than digital. This means than in high contrast scenes film has edge. It can handle them better without blowing highlights.
The greatest advantage for digital is control of photographic process in hands of artist. The photographer is not longer at mercy of lab to produce a photo that reflects his inspiration and vision.
Digital allows photographer to shoot more frames without expense of film and development, which can translate into a more complete coverage. After event photographer simply edits out bad photos and you as customer end up with best selection of day. The digital medium is ideal for backup. Multiple copies of event can simultaneously exist in different locations in event of a catastrophe. With film there is always only one copy of negatives, which could be duplicated, but second copy suffers significant quality degradation. With digital it is possible to produce different versions of same photo including black and white, color, sepia, etc. through a very simple process.
