1-sarah-bw-film-3-comp.jpgThis image composite was originally shot on Fuji100 transparency film, and also Kodak 1000ASA b/w film, as stock to send to a picture library. This was in about 2002 when digital simply wasn't up to the quality produced by film. I would then shoot different versions of the same set up, on different films, on 2 or 3 cameras so that I could give the editors different options and extend my reach into the market.

From memory the technical details are for the b/w shot ; Canon EOS / 70-200 / f22(probably) / 1000 ASA kodak film, maybe pushed one stop (to create even more grain) and self processed. The resulting negative was then scanned using a Nikon scanner.
I have to say that I prefer the b/w version. I was going through a personal 'retro' period at the time, and had set up my own darkroom at the back of the studio. I even got into the deep, dark world of producing Lith prints. But I soon grew out of it and emerged back into the sunlight and got back to full-on highly saturated colour 'tranny' film again. Then digital came of age, and we now all can do this with just one camera with a few key strokes.
