I’m still not sure how I feel about most color negative films, I usually prefer transparencies like Fuji Velvia (although it seems like Velvia 50 has been very hard to get for a while now, I suspect it won’t be around at all for much longer, I hope I’m wrong!) or even Provia. Nonetheless, Portra 160 isn’t too bad at all, not my favorite by any means, but it gets the job done.
I feel a little bit sleazy publishing these as they were all shot very close to home, so that I could finish up a roll that I wanted to send off. The rest of the roll was documentation for my Artemisianol article, of which I wound up using only one shot. Oh well.
These were all shot with my old Pentax SV and 35mm Super Takumar lens. This camera/lens combo is making me appreciate the 35mm focal length. I may even wind up with a 35mm for my rangefinder cameras. Nothing wrong with the Super Takumar though, it’s a great lens, at least by my standards.
