Here’s one I’m not quite sure about. It was taken in a sheep poo filled plant room in the Dinorwic Quarry above Llanberis in North Wales. I do love the colours but I’m still not sure. I’ve been struggling a bit with my colour film photography having switched from the ever versatile Kodak Portra 400, which I’m told on good authority is the “honey badger” of film to Kodak Portra 160, I just don’t seem to be getting it right.
The reason for the switch from Portra 400 to Portra 160 was purely financial, there is about a £0.50 per roll difference in cost. And whilst not a lot, it does add up, especially when I had the opportunity to buy a lot of film up last September. That said now I’m beginning to doubt myself, is 50p a roll worth it when (I feel) I’m wasting so much film “getting my eye” in with Portra 160?
