“A few years ago, I switched to film primarily because I knew all my favorite influential photographers shot film. I knew it came with a heavy price tag, but I thought I'd just shoot a *few* rolls at each wedding . . . which quickly became *every* roll. I fell head-over-heels in LOVE with Fuji skin tones and that delicious bokeh of medium format cameras, and the whole minimal editing factor changed my life. The key factor that hooked me, though, was the process—every photograph became tangible. I slowed down and learned to breathe, and bit by bit my composition, focus and direction improved exponentially. I realized very quickly that film had been the missing element for my work, and I’ve never looked back! (I still shoot about 15% digital during receptions, though, and apparently I audibly sigh every time I pick up my digital camera☺.)” @michelleboyd

“Once in my life, I would love to photograph an entire wedding on black and white film. I have so enjoyed experimenting with different stocks and lighting situations, and my current long-standing favorite is Ilford Delta 3200. It has deliciously timeless grain. I usually rate it at 1600, or at 3200, and push it one stop. The high ISO is fabulous for using a faster shutter speed and stopping movement, so I generally shoot a few rolls of it during receptions and ALWAYS for sparkler exits!” @michelleboyd
