Still More Film

Antiques - rural Virginia.

This time, a roll of Kodak 400TX. This is not what I expected from this film, but I think I could work with it, now that I know what it does. It's very grainy - which could be very cool - and prone to blowing out highlights. This is the identical camera and lens that I used to get such great results with the Portra this was unexpected.

The Yellow House.

Kodak Portra 160 NC

More film. Last month I bought two rolls of Kodak's Portra 160 NC film. Then, I spent the month shooting the old-fashioned way: a film SLR, a lens that lets in lots of light, and manual focus. Wow. This film is great. Great skin tones, not hyper saturated, but also really natural landscape colors. Almost every one of the shots came out in tack sharp focus, with beautiful colors. I'm hooked.

Out here on the Right Coast, we don't get as many stunning sunsets or sunrises as you tend to in, say San Diego.

So, when I drove out of the garage this morning and saw this, I had to stop and snap some photos.
