Just thought I would show you all what a RAW file looks like from the Fuji GX617 shot on Velvia 50 slide film. When I say RAW file I am of course talking about how my shot looks in a plastic sleeve back from the lab complete with the film rebate. I just love getting film back and you put it on your light table and the whole roll looks like this and your job is to pick which one looks better. Most of the time it comes down to which shot has the better wave movement.
What I love about shooting film now is in a world / profession that is super saturated with digital images, it is now us slide film shooters that have images with the unique look about them in terms of colour capture and tones. Sure I will be the first to admit that digital has a lot over shooting film in some areas. But with capturing that amazing natural colour for me it beats digital hands down. No clipping RGB colour channels here !!
With film it really is more about the knowledge and skill of capture, exposure and tonal range control than your ability in photoshop to bring the image to it’s intended glory.
