portra 160

Portra 160 | June 2016

Since starting film I have been trying so many different film stocks just to see how they all look.  This here is Portra 160, rated at 320, metered for shadows (bulb in 45 degrees down), and pushed one stop in development.  I used this inside, outside, in full sun, backlit, overcast and even when the sun had already set and there were those last few minutes of daylight left.  I really like this film stock! I think it held up really well for all the different scenarios!  The first photo of my daughter in the car, I have taken that shot many times with digital, but when i exposed for her face similar to this shot, the window would always be blown.  I love how with film i see the trees outside the window too!
