1940's Hollywood Glam and Glitz on CineStill 800T by Brian Dougher

"I was absolutely blown away with the images, and the results were even better than what I imagined they would be. This film is truly special and will always have a place in my bag."  - Brian Dougher

"I picked up some CineStill film a little while ago and I've been saving it for just the right occasion. I had been wanting to do a photo shoot with my wife for some time, and when we decided to go all-out with a 1940's style Hollywood glam style shoot, I knew that it would be the perfect opportunity to try out my new Cinestill film. I wanted to recreate the lighting and style of the period as closely as I could, so I used a fresnel tungsten hot light as my main light source, and used window light for ambient light. I knew that since Cinestill film is balanced for tungsten light, that the skin tones would look correct under the tungsten light. But what I didn't expect was just how rich and vibrant the color would be!...
I rated at 800 and incident metered on her face. All images were shot with my Nikon FE and the 50mm 1.4 AIS. I developed my film in my sink and then scanned with my Pakon F135 minilab scanner."
