Just wanted to start a thread on all of your favorite films to shoot with. Mines is Superia 400 and Fujicolor, due to the ease of access of these films. I also like Tri-X and HP-5 I’d like to try the JCH film sometime soon!
I’ve only been back with film for a short time and I’m learning that lighting and subject matter effects my choice of film selection
attached photo is portra 160 pushed/dev @ 400
Main color film is Portra 400, 160. Tried Fuji Pro 400h, on my Rolleicord to see what all the hype was about, not a fan. On a recent trip to Chicago I packed a roll of Ektar 100. ! Fantastic other than the skin tones, let me know if anyone has tips on this. Made good shots out of bright mid day light.
I like Fuji Pro 400H but haven’t tried Portra so can’t compare. Also happy with consumer films such as Fuji Superia, Fuji Industrial or Kodak Color Plus for everyday purposes.
I agree that 400 iso and below is often difficult for street photography though, especially when over-exposing a stop or so to be on the safe side with negative film.
Hardly ever shot black and white film since high-school but may give it a go again at some point.
