January Film Inspiration Guide

By February 1, 2024No Comments

First month of the year, and we already have some amazing photos from our customers. Here are some of our favorites.

Kodak Ultramax 400

@aaronpurkey

If you are looking for an affordable film stock that mirrors the colors of a Portra 400, we like you to try Kodak Ultramax 400. It’s a great everyday film stock to try!

Lomography 400

@leo.chaos

Leo inspired some of the staff to shoot outside of Kodak films for their work. This portrait photos makes us want to try Lomography films in professional setting.

Kodak Pro Image 100

@kevindelgaddo

We gave Kevin a roll of Kodak Pro Image 100 to try it out, and he cooked. We recommend checking our Instagram page and his page to see all the Kodak Pro Image photos that he made.

Kodak Portra 400

@rydka

We love how Ryan was able to capture the glow of the sun peeking through the trees. Portra 400 can handle the darkest shadows to the brightest highlights, creating an even balance of exposure as seen in the photo below.

Cinestill 800t

@charliesfilmmemory

Does this photo remind you of your childhood? I think, for us, it does. Not only that this was shot on a film but that it was shot on Cinestill 800t, making it feel like we’re watching a 90s nostalgic home movie.

Kodak Portra 160

@sergavalos

With summer fast approaching, Portra 160 is an excellent film stock to use for bright daylight conditions or sunny sunset afternoons. Also, this photo reminds us of those old DeLorean ads on a magazine spread.

Kodak Colorplus 200

@erinjeanhussey

Erin had a right idea of using Colorplus 200 to show this minimalistic style of photography. Colorplus 200 is an underrated film stock that can produce the right amount of color, vibrancy, and sharpness in any bright conditions.

HP5 400

@bypeacock

We’re not saying that color films doesn’t show story or emotion in a photo. However, black and white films have more depth and rawness that can’t be explained. We suggest trying out a roll of black and white film (specifically HP5) and then come back to us, to let us know what you think.

Fuji C200

@benito_film21

Have you ever tried shooting Fuji C200 in flash at night? We highly recommend to check out the link for more examples. In our opinion, shooting in low ISO with flash at night produces more tonality and vibrancy like the photos on the link. We highly recommend buying a roll of Fuji C200 and shoot flash at night, and you’ll be surprised with the results.

That’s it for now folks! Stay tuned for next month’s film inspiration.
