At Work

The photographers among you may appreciate the rich tonal palette and gradation of the colors (particularly on the fabric) that is purely courtesy of using analog film (Kodak Portra 400). No digital camera can come close to that.

Business on the Go

Yesterday I felt playful and was toying around a bit with Analog Efex Pro 2 (a Google photo-editing software that was originally developed by Nik Software). Its main purpose is to make digital color photos look like analog film photographs.

Me editing a Kodak Portra 400 image with that software seems kind of awkward. Nevertheless the more I toyed around with the program the more I thought that it actually worked out quite nicely and in fact added a bit more nostalgia to the picture that contrasted the rather contemporary way of working “on the go” seen in the image.

What do you think? I also add the more or less untouched original scan of the picture below for comparison. Which one works better in your opinion? Please let me know.
