"You can't shoot film indoors, in low light," they said.

Heard about a new film that was recently released in 2016 that was specially designed for low light. I just had to test it out! Its called Cinestill. It comes in speeds of 800 and 50. 50 speed is not good for low light fyi, but 800 is supposed to be great. 

A local church a few blocks down from my dad's church had 2 people get saved and were in need of a baptismal pool to baptize them in. Their pastor asked my dad if they could use our baptistry. Dad saw this is a great idea for both of the churchs to come together and have a joint service. So dad welcomed the idea and I got to witness to entirely different and diverse church bodies come together as one just like the Book says. The service was all going to be indoors, so I used this as my perfect opportunity to test out this low light film and see if what everyone said was right or not.  

 

 All my life, dad has always had a massive desk and tons of preacher books.

 My discovery:Film performs very well indoors, in low light situations. Wether your using Kodak Portra 400 pushed, Portra 800, or using Cinestill 800. As long as you use the light thats available and take your time behind your camera, you will be able to get great shots that will blow your own mind and the minds of your clients. It's always wonderful to see the church come together and worship the same Savior.
