Walled garden at Johnstown Castle, Wexford, Ireland.

 

One thing I really don’t like about digital photography is the way it renders greens. Having primarily used film for the past few years I love the way Kodak Portra ‘captures’ greens – plant life in particular, but maybe it’s also true for textiles, etc. The greens in digital files just don’t quite cut it when it comes to plant life. Yes, they are vibrant, bright, and saturated, but to my eyes, they look slightly unnatural.

So, I am always experimenting in Photoshop to try and emulate the film look. I think I may be closing in…. What do you think?

Johnstown Castle, September 2012.

All of these images were made while testing the Sony NEX 7 mounted with Leica M glass on a Novoflex adapter. Lens used: 35mm Summicron, which effectively becomes a 50mm due to the 1.5 crop factor of the APS-C sensor.
