I thought I’d upload another quick set from a roll of film I took on a walk with Megan in Fargo, North Dakota in May 0f 2012. This is all shot on Kodak Portra 160, but expired in 2003, so you can see a bit of color distortion for sure. Portra is not usually this green, though I do find it greener than, say, Ektar, which is decidedly more red, or Fuji Pro 400H, which is more magenta. All films have their own characteristics, and that–for me, anyway–is part of the fun of using it. Understanding how to use different films, and learning which I like, and which I don’t, is all part of the fun.
I haven’t tried too many films that I haven’t liked until now, though TMAX is probably my least favorite that I have used. It’s far too contrasty for my taste. Equally Fuji’s Velvia (50 or 100) is too saturated and punchy for my liking; Provia has much more pleasant colors. But that’s just me!
Anyone else have experience with film they want to share? Do so below in the comment section! I would love to hear your thoughts 🙂
