My Breakfast

My Breakfast I

I'm currently obsessed with replicating the look of film photography on digital shots. I did a study of my breakfast this morning with that particular post-processing idea in mind. I think it looks pretty good, if I say so myself. This shall be an ongoing project, i.e., shooting my breakfast. If I were a breakfast person, I'd probably do this photo shoot daily. Since I'm not, I guess I'll add more pictures to the project whenever. A few more shots from the project are behind the cut if you're interested.

    Are you telling me I’m going insane?

    Hi, Fir­da!
    There are sev­er­al bits of soft­ware for imi­tat­ing film. The fan­ci­est is this one: That’s a bit pricey.
    There’s also this one:
    That’s not pricey and you can down­load a tri­al ver­sion.
    I love the look of film, but it takes more time and some mon­ey to devel­op the film. The shop that devel­oped film for me just went out of busi­ness. I’ll have to find anoth­er one. It’s sad because almost no one uses film any­more except pho­tog­ra­phers who want to use film.
    Any­way, have fun.

    I did use Alien Skin Expo­sure plug­in on the­se. I’ve used it for years. Mine is not real­ly the lat­est ver­sion but it does the job. It’s a bit of a hit-or-miss, though. It works well on some pho­tos, not so much on oth­ers. But I think it did a great job on my break­fast series. Sor­ry to hear about your local pho­to lab going out of busi­ness. Here’s hop­ing that ours will stick around a bit longer!
