Hasselblad 500cm with Kodak Ektar 100

Camera : Hasselblad 500cm
Lens : 150mm Sonar
Film : Kodak Ektar 100
Developer: Tetenal Colortec C-41 

A roll shot on the same day as this one at Exbury Gardens, when I was on a double exposure mission. I like how you can tell the colour differences between the Ektar and Portra if you compare the two set of negatives, the Ektar giving deeper, richer blues and greens.

I don’t know about you but starting out in film photography, film choices are a little hit and miss. You’re not likely to buy a really shitty film, but all you have to go on when choosing are the examples images the online store gives you, Analogue Wonderland in my case. Whilst the example images broadly give you a good idea of what the film is capable of, if you don’t shoot the types of images in those examples it can be hard to imagine how the film will translate to your own style and preferred subject matter.

Portra for now is my film of choice for beaches and Ektar is floating my boat for foliage. Personal preference FYI.


I am really pleased with these, bar the shot that I wrecked by trying to add an intentional light leak (but instead of slipping out the dark slide for a second I sneezed and left it open for too long #failz).
