Random Landscapes on Portra

with 2 Comments

 

It’s been awhile since I made a post with color images. I’ve been doing a lot of street photography with black and white film lately. During this time, my second OM1 was loaded with color film, Kodak Portra 400. On occasion, I would use my second camera for some landscape shots. I finally finish this roll of film after loading it in the camera back in January of this year. How’s that for the instant gratification world we live in today! These days I spend more time planning and doing recon to determine when and where I’m going to shoot. When you couple that with waiting for the roll to be completed and developed, weeks and months will go by before I see the results. I’ve grown to love this aspect of shooting film. It’s made me a better observer which has improved my digital work as well.

I will feature more landscape shots from this roll of film on my next two posts. This roll of Portra also has some images that I hope will be showcased in a historical magazine publication later this year. It will be a collaboration with my wife. She’s writing the article and I am supplying the photographs. Stay tuned, I will share those images after the publication. Thanks for reading!

    Hi Travis!

    your magazine-project sounds exciting. Good luck!
    Yes, there is this thing with colour film … I have a roll sitting in my camera for quite a while, I can’t recall, when I loaded the camera. It must have been prior to meeting friends, I planned to portrait them, they cancelled the appointment and now I’m left with landscape or, to be precise: cityscapes. šŸ˜‰

    You might have noticed this on my blog: I post no recent film pics, my camera is “blocked” at the moment. LOL

    Have a nice sunday, probably outside?
    best, Paula

      Thank you! I hope everything works out.

      Do you label your film cameras? I made the mistake of forgetting that I had some film in a camera which was loaded several months ago. The mistake was opening the camera with the film still inside. I realized my mistake instantly and closed the camera back quickly. I only lost a couple of frames. Yes, this was a roll of color film. I now add a label to all my camera’s with the film stock and date.

      I hope you get through the blockade. I would love to see more of your analog images!

      I hope to get out today with the camera. I have a roll of Ektar and TRI-X that I need to finish. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
