How to Shoot Film Portraits at Home (feat. Fuji GW690ii + Yashica EM) by Sean Tucker

4/29/2020 ISO 1200 Magazine 1 Comments

In this series of videos, Sean Tucker takes you through his process of shooting, developing and processing my film at home. In part 01 Sean introduces you to the cameras he uses, the black and white film stock he has landed on, and the constant lighting setup he uses for portraits, featuring the Aputure 120Dmkii.

In part 02, he shows you my process for developing the negatives at home using a changing bag, a Paterson Tank, and Ilford developers. In part 03, Sean shows you how he scans those images into high res files and convert them to positive 3 ways, including Lightroom Classic, Negative Lab Pro, and Photoshop.
