Kodak Portra 160VC: Rockin' Negative!


Kodak Professional Portra 160VC is among the negative films that I love to use.

“I found the versatility of the new Portra 160 film simply astounding. So many elements of it make my job easier. The latitude has freed me up to approach each shoot uniquely. The new Portra 160 is also a dream to scan. Everything I love about photography takes place behind a camera; everything I hate about photography takes place behind a computer. With this new film, using the proper exposure, I often find myself cutting Photoshop out of my workflow. As a result, I spend more time shooting and less time editing – priceless.” — Ryan Muirhead

Portra 160VC will make your pictures look so amazing with excellent color tone. You can capture most of the moments with Portra 160VC since its ISO-160 film speed give you more advantages rather than ISO-100, especially in low-light situation.

Since the Portra 160VC is designed to reproduce vivid color as our human eyes sees it: low contrast, very fine grain and natural colors, it’s a best option that you can have for portrait photos because it will enhance the natural skin color and make the pictures seem so warm.

With this film, you will never be disappointed because its T-Grain emulsion technology will deliver smooth, natural reproduction of the full range of flesh tones, plus exceptional color saturation.

The Portra 160 will also improve saturation and hue of color-filters (Kola Color Filters is my preference) and make the photo come out lively.

My experience using this film also makes me believe that Portra 160VC is one of the best professional negative films in the market nowadays.
