Despite it’s high ISO, Delta 3200 is truly the most light hungry film of all the black and white film stocks. As you can see in the comparison below, this film stock responds well to overexposure. The closer you rate this film to box speed, the grainier it will become. If you want to reduce this grain, you’ll want to overexpose more.  The images below were shot inside of a parking garage without clean light available. You can see in this example that Delta 3200 yields much better results in low light when rated at 1000 ISO rather than 3200 ISO. Delta 3200 also does well when it is pushed in development if you want a high contrast look.

Outsourcing can be a scary word. You’re putting your work, pride and joy, into someone else’s hands. But in reality, you can’t afford to NOT outsource. Let us explain… Think for a minute about how much time you spent editing your last session. How many hours did you spend in front of your computer? In all that time you spent editing, you could’ve been promoting your business, shooting more sessions, or quite frankly, enjoying time doing the things you love or being with the people you love!

We have an amazing team of highly-trained editors who work with the goal in mind to make outsourcing be a seamless process for you.  We had the privilege of having Kirk Mastin come to Utah and train our team one on one.  We are the only lab endorsed by Kirk Mastin himself.

Our specialty is working with hybrid shooters to make your digital images match to film.  If you’re a digital only shooter, have no fear!  Our team is really comfortable with film and knows how your session would appear as if it was captured on film.  Your editor will work with you to create your complimentary color profile. Before we begin, we want to make sure we’re on the same page to make your images reflect your personal style.  We encourage our clients to have an open dialogue with their editor, giving them feedback on each order so we can provide images you and your clients love.  One of the greatest benefits of outsourcing is we will make your portfolio become more consistent.

If you’re a newer photographer still trying to figure out your style, outsourcing is perfect for you. With every order we process, our editors (who are photographers themselves) give customized feedback that can help you improve and dial in your aesthetic.  If you aren’t interested in feedback, no worries! Just let our team know.

If you’re still unsure about outsourcing your work, just send 25 images to test it out, on the house! Simply write 25HYBRIDFREE on your order form and we look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

We were excited to be the official sponsors for the first ever Photo Native Conference, held in Lindon, UT. Our own lab manger, Belinda Olsen, presented on shooting film and digital and how to perfect the union of the two. We were also happy to be apart of two shoots. One by Kyle and Michelle White and another by Brooke Schultz.

Kyle and Michelle covered everything for photographers wanting to get into film photography in their Film 101 class. They had a plethora of information about camera formats, metering, and pushing film. Their shoot was Japanese inspired bride getting ready for her wedding day. Everything from the model to the details were an inspiration to wedding photographers.

Brooke’s class Love-Soaked Family Photography: Emotion, Fun, and Authenticity was captivating with lovely imagery. She also had a lot of tips and tricks to get families and especially kids to smile for the perfect candid image. Brooke’s shoot was held in a beautiful studio with lots of window light and the cutest family. Each attendee took turns posing and shooting the family.  The light and details created an environment where creativity flowed.
