BLOG: Lady in Blue Walking Through

One thing that is nice about shooting film, (Kodak Portra 400 in this instance) is that it is what it is. With digital, especially RAW files, you have to always tweak something. Add a little contrast, desaturate the reds, add clarity, etc. etc. True, you can tweak film scans, but the basic color and tonal range is more there than a RAW file is right out the camera. Plus, shooting with that little Lomo, it just does magical things with the focus.

I shot this a week or so at the Portland Japanese Garden. Amazing place… highly recommend it if you’re visiting or haven’t gone before. Spring time is coming up and the blooms are quite beautiful here.
