See for yourself the finish that DFS can deliver! This dramatic short from our friends at Digital Design Group is another camera test/art piece and the images are amazing. We chose to use DFS KODAK 5231 as the base look for this piece. We gave it an HDR finish which allows us to maintain all the detail in the blacks and whites. The end result turned out amazing…you be the judge.
