Experimenting with PP

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've found that I'm getting too used to shooting the same way and PPing the same way on all of my digital stuff. I still don't think that digital is as good as black and white film, so I went out and shot some things at way higher ISO than necessary, trying to see how I could get sensor noise to translate into film grain. I took 10 shots and came home to see what they looked like, in part because it's still somehow 95 degrees and humid as hell. I'm not sure if I like either one of these PP methods, but trying something new never hurts.

This is a place I plan to go back to and shoot with film, but I don't really like either of these shots, just simply trying some new PP methods.

As far as mimicking film grain, I think you would have better luck using some PS filters. That way you aren't sacrificing so much detail shooting at high ISO.

I've tried adding minimal grain in LR, and razor-sharp images are not always desired. You're free, of course, to see what those look like at 100% on my flickr, both are slightly cropped. Adding noise or grain in a PS filter will have the same effect, although perhaps slightly less random than directly out of the camera. IIRC, I shot both of those at 2500, and neither of them are really starving for detail. I don't worry too much about uber-fine resolution in scenes like these, in fact sometimes it can be distracting or off-putting. I like the way fast film looks, and sometimes nitpicking detail can be so obtrusive that you forget what's in the final image.
