Week #03 – Kodak Portra 400

Kodak Porta 400
Kodak Portra 400 (120 roll film)

Last weeks film (shot during the NOLEGIDA counter-demonstrations) is not developed yet. But since I want to keep the “every friday” schedule here’s a film interlude from last month.
The following images are from 3 different rolls – it’s fascinating how diverse the same film, shot with the same camera, can turn out.

Shop-Talk:

Medium format (120), color negative, roll film, 12* exposures, ISO 400.

Yashica Mat 124G (Yashinon 80mm f3.5) + Kodak Portra 400
Film bought for ~5,70 EUR via Amazon.de (Partner-Link)
Developed @ FotoStudio 80 (Leipzig, Germany).
Scanned with Epson Perfection V550.

*) exposures depend on the format you are shooting. Using 6×6 it’s 12 exposures.

When invited to go-kart racing in early January I grabbed the only ISO 800 film I had in the fridge. Once there, I had no desire to race, but had a good time taking images instead.

Shop-Talk:

24 exposures, ISO 800, expired 2011, cold stored.

Week #01 – Rollei RPX 400

Week #01: Rollei RPX 400

And so it begins. The first roll of the year. One per week were planned and I’m already over. Guess it’s not too bad to have something as a backup. Took a while since it’s … well, film. Developing, scanning, all that jazz. The following photos were made in Markkleeberg – a small town at the outskirts of Leipzig – while celebrating New Years Eve.

Shop-Talk:

The film base is clear and lies flat = very good for scanning.

Film bought for 3,60 EUR over at Fotoimpex (Berlin, Germany).
Shot at ISO 1600, developed @ FotoStudio 80 (Leipzig, Germany).
Scanned with Epson Perfection V550.

Film is dead. Or is it?

I’m on an one year journey to find out how dead exactly film really is. One roll of film per week, most importantly: not repeating a single one!

Color goes to the lab, Black and White is developed by myself at a community darkroom. Everything is scanned by myself to keep costs low.

Roll #1 is already shot, but labs are closed until next week. Hope your start into 2015 was great and you have an interesting project of your own to pursue. See you next week!
