Film photography workshop Phoenix, AZ

Most recently, Jodi Lynn attended a Daniel Kim Photography workshop named “The Luminary Workshop”. The workshop focused on film photography; film is not a lost art! Jodi Lynn has a special place in her heart for film photography. In fact, she used to have her very own dark room in college! Film photography is an art that is still being utilized and is actually sometimes preferred over digital images. Jodi Lynn believes most people love the look of film images but don’t realize they’re actually viewing a film image. Jodi Lynn found an awesome article titled “Why Film is Still Better Than Digital” which highlights why film is still the preferred medium; especially when it comes to natural light photography. Here are some highlights from the article:

  • Film controls highlights well – One area where I see film having a clear advantage over digital is in natural light. Film is meant to be shot in natural light, and that’s where it thrives. It is much more forgiving when it comes to overexposure, and it doesn’t blow out highlights as easily as digital cameras. This is especially helpful when I’m using the brightest thing in our solar system as a hair light.
  • Film blends light and color better – Digital camera sensors, are made up of millions of tiny squares that give us an image. Film isn’t split up in such a linear way, and because of that, it naturally blends light and colors better.
  • Film has aesthetically pleasing grain – One of the worst things about digital cameras is also one of the best things about film, the grain. The grain that you get from film is much more pleasing and natural than digital cameras, and it adds to the texture and character of the photo.
  • You can shoot medium format without selling your soul – Shooting film has given me the opportunity to shoot on a camera format that I wouldn’t have been able to shoot with digital, medium format. What’s the big deal with medium format, and why does that matter? Let me simply say, shooting medium format has changed the way I approach photography.

In fact some pieces at the studio are from her antique shopping finds! On top of getting to know a little more about Jodi Lynn; she was able to discuss her love of boudoir photography.

“How do you think your photographs change women’s opinions about themselves?”

“Most women are very critical about themselves. As we all know, we are our own worst critics. I feel that my photography allows them to see themselves as others see them. They say things like “That’s me!” or “You made me feel so beautiful!” I feel when they see themselves this way their perspective changes and they feel beautiful and empowered.” ~ Jodi Lynn
