Yesterday I did a portrait shoot with a a model. Mostly to use for an upcoming exhibition I have in a few weeks, but also for her to get some photographs for herself. I have been experimenting back and forth with the grain effect in LR to find the right amount of grain to get that film look.
I shot with my 5D3 and the 35L, it gives a nice perspective that I like and it fitted her face perfectly although it's wide to be a traditional portrait lens. I will make prints around 50x60 cm, fitting the whole picture in and leave white frames around it for the magnets at the gallery.
I am wondering if you have any recommendations on how far to go on the scale. Any pointers? I am experimenting back and forth but just can't tell when it gets perfect. Any tips are welcome.
