Kodak Portra 160vc is a very nice color negative print film………

Kodak Portra 160VC is one of my all time favorites for portraits. Portra 160VC yields very pleasant, natural skin tones in mostly all conditions, flash, low light, and afternoon sun. White is clean and the blue skies are very vivid. The film has low grain. The colors seem to hold a vibrant but not over-powering flavor for a classic, natural look. It can be pushed and pulled a bit in either direction.

In December of 2006 I got my hands on the LCA+; I decided it was time to try something other than cross processing. This gallery was done using Kodak Portra 160VC with the Lomo LCA+ and was shot at ISO 100 and 200.

Are we not men?

    I've never shot 160iso film - do you basically use 100 for low light and 200 for flash and super bright sun?

    it is the opposite,actually, the lower the light, the higher iso needed.
