Retrostylin': Agfa Potrait (120, 160 iso) User-Review


Great film for retro-like pics. Nice skin tones and soft colours.

I really needed to have a whole box of this film without knowing whether i would like it or not. Praised by the Lomography community as the greatest film producing company, Agfa tempted me to give this a shot.
No surprise. I love this film for its skin tones, its soft colors that seems to come closest to how I see through my own eyes. Haven’t tried to many portrait shots with it but I am sure it would be great if used with the right camera. Another limitation, don’t do too many doubles with it because the background will nearly fade.

I think there are better ones to use this treasure with than the Holga, due to lighting and the Holga’s lack of flexibility. You really need very bright sunny days but then you get an awfully beautiful blue sky and visionary browns and skin tones. They are still quite easy to get, so don’t hold off….
