During a recent senior photo shoot, I broke out the film camera and did a few frames. Yes, I managed to cut off both hands at the wrists. Not happy with that, but I am happy with the look of Portra 400. Indie Lab does a pretty good job processing and scanning for a decent price, although I do need to make a few corrections in post, mostly for contrast. One thing about film, the most you need to crop in, the bigger your grain is going to be.

My first roll of Kodak Portra 400 film. I overexposed by about a third of a stop and shot @ ISO 320. The resulting scan was a little more exposed than I would have liked, so I needed to drop it in post by about 3/4 of a stop. It may be that I had exposed for the very darkest part of this (backlit) photo, but I am happy with the results. I'll need to figure out exactly what I did wrong and then move on for next time.

Kodak TMAX 100. Not as much contrast as I had hoped, so I had to adjust in Lightroom. Once I got those adjustments made, though, I liked the results. From what I understand Kodak is getting out of the film business anyway. I'll likely stick with Ilford from here on out, unless I come across something else that intrigues me.

First roll of film processed from my new-to-me film camera, a Canon EOS Elan 7. Shot with Ilford fp4+ film with 50mm f/1.4 lens. Newport, Oregon. I wasn't sure how all this was going to turn out, but I was very pleased with the results. This is a rich set of tones and nothing was done to digitally enhance them.
