There many kinds of film on the market; some of the ones I’ve used have been discontinued. Below are some I have used either in 35mm or 120mm:
Kodak Portra 160: Natural color. Less saturated. Fine grain
Kodak Portra 400: Super saturated. Super fine grain
Kodak Tri 400/ Ilford HP5 Plus 400: Very low Grain. Very pushable
Kodak Ektar 100: Super Saturated. No grain
Fuji Superia 800: High contrast. Saturated

We created this blog with the intention of keeping film photography alive. Why? Because we love it and believe that the world should still see and enjoy the real beauty of analogue. Nothing, we repeat NOTHING, beats the feeling of loading your camera with a film roll, clicking photos, taking the roll back to the processing shop and waiting for the photos. The best part is when you pick and open them up! They could be good, bad, funny, underexposed, overexposed but in general, the whole idea is that it is real and fun.
So, our intention here really is to share our tips, photos and answer any of your questions wherever possible. So, do not hesitate to ask or even share your tips in the comment box or by dropping us an email.
So snap away and take as many photos as you can for they are moments that pass. If you do not take them at the right moment, they will be gone.. Forever.
