We paid a visit to Amy last week in Aberystwyth and just for a change we had a lovely bright day.
The last few trips to “Aber” have been wet and dark so it lends itself to some grainy B&W images but for a change I loaded the F100 with some Kodak Portra 400 and shot it 2 stops over.
I must admit I love the way Portra looks when pushed especially when shooting portraits and along with the 50mm f1.4 wide open the film really makes the image pop.
I really need to start shooting more portraits, I have to pull my finger out and make a point of getting some willing subjects ( its like pulling teeth getting my family to pose for me)
All in all it was a good day out albeit a bit cold but it was nice to shoot in sunshine for a change.
As usual the film was processed and scanned by http://www.filmdev.co.uk/ who did a great job, I can’t recommend them more highly.

comments welcomed…. and if anyone local is up for some portrait shots drop me an email 🙂
One thought on “A day out at the seaside ……”
I really like Portra, too. I use Portra 400 for just about everything, especially portraits. When I want that extra punch, I go to Ektar 100. I also have the same problem with my family as willing participants. Nice images!
