About this deal

There’s not much to say about the image qualities Portra brings to your street photography that wasn’t covered in the last section. Learn or discover a new technique, build on your skills, or be inspired to have a go at a bit of DIY. The bottom line here is that Portra 400 is a fantastic film and one that’s great for seasoned shooters as well as newcomers to analogue photography. I pay more attention to the average reading in the foreground rather than the entire scene including the sky and I often have exposure compensation on my metering camera set to +0.

He provides oversight to all of the daily tasks, including editorial, administrative, and advertising work. There are still plenty of great color film alternatives to Portra 400 that are worth your time if you want to save a couple bucks. Portra 400 is a hugely versatile film, paired with the right camera it can produce lovely images in a variety of conditions, with that stunning signature color, contrast, and sharpness. While I enjoyed the more vibrant results I got from the likes of Kodak’s Ultramax and Ektar films, the paler Portra photographs are very good too.Alongside these was a Portra VC, which stood for vivid colour and also came in ISO 160 and 400 versions. With a wide range of exposures from bright light to low-light situations, you can create photos that are precisely how you want them. Offering one of the easiest and most versatile films to shoot with, with lovely color saturation that will bring out the most in your images.

I think the imagers looks great I have Never used Portra but have used Ektachrome and Ektar in the pass and was very happy the results. For reasons of learning and also for content for this site, I couldn’t stick to just one film type no matter how good it is. And if you think others will enjoy or benefit from this Portra film review too, help them find it by giving it a share. This is a setting that can easily be adjusted post process if you find that the extra warmth is something you dislike. For the image below, I wanted the building itself to render as a midtone so I focused on the center of it when taking my meter reading.When I use Portra in medium format I almost always go with the 400 version as my goal is more of a general all-purpose landscape film and since I’m using a smaller camera it’s nice to have the option of hand holding it every now and then. This image was shot with Kodak Portra 400 on a Bronica ETRS: which means that it was done in the 645 format. For this next image, the classic Scottish weather of wind and rain was spitting droplets onto the lens. Ehhhh, I don’t really know how slower films can be “alternatives” to Portra 400 in the sense that they can actually compete in any meaningful way. The film is daylight balanced and while it’s rated at ISO 400, it has an impressive exposure latitude.
