My Best Shots of 2010 with Kodak Ektar

Everybody knows that I'm not good at English, but just relax, it's all about time and practice. I'll tell you a few words about my new favorite film-Kodak Ektar 100, no boring story for you!

For truthful experiment, you usually need at least 100 people. What you need to test the film ? I see: you, camera and film . I had 7 films of Kodak Ektar and that’s what I think about them: it is perfectly good for the sun, bright days, great weather, good contrast just perfect for shooting from dawn to dusk – all because of the sun. Because it is 100 ISO. Photograph in the woods and outdoors, in a poppy field and in the mountains, beach and snow, in your secret place or the public library, wherever there is light and your eyes wide open.

So …. what else?
-Ultra-vivid color
-Exceptional sharpness
-Extraordinary enlargement capability

And if you want to do portraits? You need Kodak Ektar 100 – it does not change skin tone, keeps shine in the eyes and the smile on face. Take a picture of your friend or girlfriend, grandmother, your boss, a policeman on the street, your school teacher, a psycho in a disco, people in the subway, your neighbor in the train and a of course, the mandatory Lomo self-portrait!

I use it with my Diana camera and They work well together. Sometimes, in low light conditions, when I was photographing on the street the pictures obtained a blue tint, the sky is always beautiful, too – maybe it is a feature of this film – rich blue color.

    I tried Ektar 100 on a Canon F-1 and I loved the results. I'm looking forward to buy a Diana and some Ektar rolls :)
