Kodak Portra 160: To London with Love

2012-05-18 2

I have brought along the Kodak Portra 160 35mm colour negative film for my trip to London, it gives greatest scenic pictures, which features balanced colour tone.The fine and smooth texture of its grain even gives more beautiful portraits of people as subjects. The best companion for travellers!

It brings good and consecutive successions of colour through different levels of light sources, which is truly pleasant. It portrays buildings with good shape and colour tone, which gives the smoothest and finest texture for photos.

It features a good balance of colour tone, which makes photos pleasant and even more realistic for outdoor subjects with excellent sharpness. Shooting subjects like tree branches? No problem! They will look as delicate as they’d be when painted by an invisible hand. Wonderful! It also produces bright results under tungsten light with normal indoor shutter of 1/60 and 3.3 aperture.

The sharpness is maintained when used for shooting people, so the photos come out refined. And when shooting buildings in London, it can show the texture of the red brick walls clearly, making it look just right. All in all, it is an unforgettable memory for reminiscing the days in London with such sharp, colorful, and modern retro eye, such as the Kodak Portra 160.
