For episode 62 we have a talented commercial photographer Christina Zen – who shoots film!
Christina moved across to film after years of shooting weddings on digital to the world of film! She bought a Contax 6×4.5 and never looked back. She talks us through her experiences and provides insights about learning to use film stock effectively.
Christina shoots a variety of food, lifestyle and other commercial related work. You can see lots of her lovely images on her website (the food images are especially mouth-watering). She also mentors with one on one sessions, so if you are looking for help, look no further.
We discuss a number of topics including:
- choosing film
- Pushing Portra 800/Fuji 400
- Shooting food + eating it!
- Waist level shooting
- Food photography
- Mum + coping as wedding tog
- Need for marketing
- Less “posed” look
- Being creative
- Workshops + science lessons
