Last week R. was home sick with a fever and chest cold. After sitting in the house, sick myself, for a few days I needed to get out…and SURPRISE I had a model to ‘pose’ in my photos. 🙂 No rest for the weary! If I let her sit all day she’d always want to stay home all the time, can’t have that happen. Off I went to grab some 120 Kodak Portra 400 film and my Rolleiflex.
Upon returning from out little outing, I noticed a large package on my front porch….background paper!!! Quickly moving the large package from outside to inside, I set up a little natural light studio in my kitchen to see how the paper would look on camera. It’s a wide heavy paper but I love it so much.
Here’s the digital version taken on my Nikon D3 with 50 mm lens:
Because I never take one version of a photo, LOL! I like to compare what can i say.

I love the natural colors in the Kodak Portra. Part of being an Analog Ambassador for Old School Photo Lab is comparing film, I have other films to show but going to save that for another post, The Portra is the cleanest and most forgiving film I have used yet. As you can see, the colors are natural, bright, not overly saturated but not muted either, even in crappy Barnes and Noble lighting. Being a 400 speed film, it’s a perfect all around choice for most situations. I should order more…because no Kodak is not going to stop making film!! 🙂
