Description

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 6x4.5 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!
