Victoria's Light

The accepted way to shoot Portra is on the plus side.  It gives a beautiful light and airy feeling to the images.  To the best of my knowledge (relatively confident) these images were shot with a Konica Hexar AF.  I like this camera very much.  It is light, has a great lens and auto-focus is accurate.   Getting away from my lazy ways of late, I developed these and the last post at home.  I used the Cinestill C-41 kit, and the related bath heater they have produced.  The heater works better than other kitchen type ones I have tried, it is more powerful so the water heats quickly, but the temperature on the unit does not agree with my Weston thermometer.  The Weston shows the digital reading from the Cinestill is off by 3 degrees.  I’m not sure what reading is correct.  I went with the Weston and increased the digital reading so the Weston read 102F.

35mm Film Shootist

Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 & M3 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life. My film of choice now is Fomapan 100 Classic.
