Kodak suggests using its Gold 200 film up to two hours after sunrise and two hours before sunset. But I advise you to use it between dusk and dawn.
I have always been told that Kodak Gold Film was one of the worst films on the market and so I never bought it. But one day, having little money, I decided to try it. I didn’t have high expectations, and instead I was surprised.
The first roll I used for testing bokeh and double exposures. I first photographed the lights of the Christmas tree, then I rewound the film and I reloaded it in the same machine (to match the frames I made a sign with a permanent marker when I loaded the film the first time) and left taking pictures around the city.
I liked the results, especially the yield of the blue sky. So I decided to try it again. I went to Cala. After sunset.
