Thank you, Katherine, for your well-considered, respectful, and
intelligent primer on cameras. I, for one, very much appreciate it. I
do have a question regarding film. It sounds like there's unlikely to be
a single film that can be counted on to render accurate colors across the
color spectrum, and that's a problem when one is shooting irises that DO
encompass such a broad variety of color ... sometimes within a single
bloom. One of the most glaring problems, however, is accurate blue
rendition. I've tried Kodak and Fuji films, but all I ever seem to end
up with are blue and near-blue irises that turn out lavender-purple on
film. Of course, this may be as much the fault of the mass market labs I
use as it is the film, but I wonder if there's a specific film you can
recommend for shooting bluish irises in the garden under natural light.
Again, I appreciate your taking time to share your expertise.
