Hello, hello! For those visiting my adventures in analog film posts for the first time, I’ve moved it over from my main website. You can visit the initial post HERE to see the results from Fuji Superia 400. I’ll start by commenting that these posts will be sporadic depending on how much film I am able to shoot and how fast I am about getting the rolls mailed off to be developed. I already look like a crazy woman with my phone (I made it a goal to use only images taken with my phone’s camera for Instagram) and big ‘ol DSLR–can you imagine how heavy my bag is when I add in a super heavy film camera body? Sometimes–most of the time–I leave my DSLR at home, and just focus on shooting film.
For this blog post, I am going to share with you my thoughts about Kodak Portra 400! I shot the roll on my 35mm Canon EOS-1 (a GREAT body, by the way) and sent the roll off to The FIND Lab for developing. My thoughts? I loved it! The film has noticeable fine grain and it complements the colors it produces. I love the airy tones with this film, total opposite from the Superia 400 (but I LOVE the tones from that too!). I choose the Basic scan option from TFL (The FIND Lab) and I barely do any retouching, aside from a little rotation/crop work and clarity/sat boost, it’s pretty much good to go.
Check out my Portra 400 captures below. In the mean time, I’ll be shooting and sharing!
