Swooning Over Film Scans

I just got my first roll of scanned images back from theFINDlab. I'd like to say I waited patiently, but I really checked my email every 5 minutes today. You can choose for them to give you feedback on your order, and I was slightly afraid I would get some horrible feedback like, "Maybe you should only shoot digital from now on." I was pleasantly surprised that they gave me some nice feedback and only one small suggestion to rate my film at 200 or 320 instead of the box speed of 400. So to all you photographers on the fence about shooting film, don't be afraid! Dive in!

I guess I should explain what is going on in this roll of film. My sister and brother-in-law and my oh so adorable niece Avie came to visit us for Memorial Day! We went to the Arboretum, the Wedge, and Zia Taqueria.

Everything was shot on 35mm Portra 400 film using my Nikon N65 film camera. The baby is not a professional baby model even though she could be.

Film has its own look, and it's different than digital. Let me know what you think in the comments!
