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.
