Ali Partovi does not necessarily agree. As a rule photographers so much harder to sell their services. But do not underestimate their ability, even if many sites of pseudo trying to convince that the age of film cameras have outlived its, because these "experts" in most cases do not represent the workflow associated with processing of the film. Just some photographers have romantic feelings when working with film. Sometimes, looking at pictures made film camera, you can confidently say that they really are different from digital.
However, it is not always the case. This is what we'll talk below. First, let's go back to our future wedding photographer and his work. You've seen his portfolio, and it really likes you, regardless of format prints – this is mainly in the choice, and not the camera. There are also some opinions on film formats.
Someone said that the only medium format film is best. Someone on the contrary believes that film cameras are outdated. Some experts on the popular wedding resources talking about the exceptional popularity of camera medium format for wedding photography. But we must remember that these resources are created for advertising, and sometimes should not trust their opinion without reservation. So, let's talk again about the film. Film and digital images taken in identical conditions, to the naked eye will look the same – they will be equally contrasting and pleasing to the eye. So, as the deterioration of light conditions, both images will appear "grain." Difference in texture (structure) of the grain in appearance snapshot could capture only a specialist. Many experts would like to see grain structure on the figure was similar to that of grain on the film, however, sometimes this is possible. But there is other differences between the digital print from film, but we will not mention about them.

Instead of the above process darkroom simply scan the film. After scanning the film and digitize it can be printed as well as conventional digital snapshots. After printing such snapshot can see grain but this grain already will constitute restriction permission scanner amplification sharpness using software or resized images. Snapshot will differ from digital despite what it scanned film and imprint already will not look as ordinary film imprints. And nevertheless, film or digital image? In reality that film that digital technology in the hands of a competent wedding photographer is a very powerful tool. In the end, only your photographer and his ability (including the photo lab with whom he collaborates) can significantly affect the appearance of prints. Since the digital format increasingly part of our lives, the quality of the film scanning photographic laboratory depends on many things. The only advice you can give – is to keep common mind when choosing a photographer for the wedding, no matter what he shoots, the main thing – it's his attitude towards work.
