Film • Yes,.. film. Michael + Anna’s style of shooting film makes skin look smooth & beautiful. Colors are vivid & full, grey tones are rich & deep. Most of all though are the intangible qualities, one might say the “soul” film possesses. Images are dreamy, nostalgic and resonant. Technically, film is a physical, three-dimensional object. As well, Michael + Anna are adept digital shooters and will take advantage of its great properties during specific times.
