Taking portraits is always a good idea. How you’ll go about, however, it is another story.
One too many times we’ve seen what could’ve been a great portrait ruined by a technical error. Even the greatest idea for a photo can easily be spoiled by, say, miscalculations and wrong choices in execution, lighting, and equipment. While it’s true that unforeseen circumstances might play a part too, nothing can be more frustrating than realizing that the problem at hand could’ve easily been avoided in the first place.
Many might not realize it, but the choice of film can drastically affect your shots, too. There are certain films that are excellent for portraiture, one of which is the Fujicolor C200 for 35mm cameras as it enhances the skin tone.
Not planning to use up an entire roll of Fujicolor C200 on portraits alone? Don’t worry! This film is also great for both indoor and outdoor with flash shooting, offering results that have beautiful color, fine grain and sharpness!
