Happy International Kodak Film Photography Day, Lomographers! Pay tribute to the iconic photographic company by shooting a roll of Kodak film on the 159th birthday of its founder, George Eastman. Here are 5 emulsion recommendations for you!
If you’re looking for smooth grain and superior sharpness in black & white, T-Max is your best bet!
For unbelievable sharpness and versatility in monochrome, the 400 ISO version of T-Max should do the job!
NC stands for Natural Color and that’s exactly what this emulsion delivers in all its medium format glory. Perfect for portraits and nature photography.
VC means—you guessed it—vivid color, and Kodak’s Portra 160 rarely disappoints. A true professional’s choice.
This B&W film is processed in regular C-41 chemicals available at most one-hour photo labs so it’s my go-to for creativity, contrast and chromogenic convenience!
