It’s no wonder that these two films are fan favourites in our community. See the Kodak Portra and Fuji Velvia in action after the jump!
Kodak and Fuji are two of the most looked up film manufacturers of all time. Lomographers worth their salt would have nodded in agreement after reading that. The *Kodak Portra* line boasts natural colors that pop with every frame as well as fine grain that makes it an easy choice for any discerning film photographer.
The *Fuji Velvia* on the other hand is known for its crazy color shifts and knockout saturation. This iconic slide film has stolen the hearts of many film photographers and captured the attention of many onlookers.
The good news is that they’re both available at Lomography’s Online Shop! Treat yourself to some amazing film choices at the Online Shop and shoot to your analogue heart’s content!
