Battle of the film: Lomography Color v. Kodak Portra v. Digital

My name is Andrew and I am a fine art wedding photographer. Today I am going to show you the difference between raw digital shots and same images taken on 35mm Lomography Color 400 film and medium format Kodak Portra 400. I arranged such photoshoot to test two films and I used Canon 6D for test shots and for more precise light metering. Both Lomography Color and Portra were overexposed by 2 stops. Lomography Color was scanned in Lithuanian lab while Portra was scanned in German lab. I also left the digital raw files untouched. This way it will be easier to compare the original colours coming right from the camera and film. You can click images to enlarge them. I hope you will enjoy this film battle and get a basic idea of colours and their difference in those films compared to each other and digital shots. Just to mention - this is not the battle of formats, bokeh, cameras or lenses. We are focused on colours here so please do not judge my article from any other point.

So here you got. All film shots were shot with ISO set to 200 and overexposing by 1 additional stop which makes +2 in total.
