All of us lomographers do like and love slide film. But often we forget that out there are other films. They are called color negative film and one of them is from Kodak with the name Portra 160VC. A great film that deserves a little review.
One of the first negativefilm that I bought for my Diana F+ was a Kodak Portra 160VC. It was one of the cheapest in my local film store and so I gave it a try. My first rolls weren’t so good that I could say: yes, what a great film. But time after time I became a better feeling for my Diana F+ and for shooting. I still often get the 160VC and i became happier and happier. The 160VC is a film which can you bring all sort of different colors. It’s good to use on sunny days or in the night with a flash, but it brings you also great results on grey days.
The Diana F+ was my first camera but soon I wanted more and I get more ;) I bought me a used Lubitel 166B auctioned off at eBay. Again I needed film for my Lubitel. And once again I took Kodak Portra 160VC. My Lubitelshots were all a big success. At this moment I realized how great this film is. You can use it even in the night in a room with normal light and the shots come out great. The colors are often very deep but also soft. There is more or less no grain, only if you take shots at places, where you haven’t this much light. So I can only say: give this film a try and let you take on a great ride of deep colors and beautiful tones. Oh and by the way this film loves blues and reds ;)
So go out and grab you a roll of this film and enjoy it!
Hiking in New Zealand has its own proper noun. Great Walks, they call it. The term stands for nine routes that can send people panting and oohing over nature. In 2001, another upper-case name sealed the country’s reputation for pristine land. "The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring" became an accidental advertisement for the green wonders of New Zealand.
There are many reasons one visits Africa - its foreign wilderness often revered, but many forget that the place is also a home to many.

Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
Not all photographs are meant to be seen in vibrant, saturated colors, and neither are they always suitable for in black and white. Lomography welcomes yet another innovation from KONO!
