Cinestill 800T

@analoguette

If you’re a fan of Katia’s work (I know I am), I would check out her feed. I’m convinced that she’s a master when it comes to color theory because she can produce such vibrant and colorful images no matter what film stock she’s using. Here’s her recent work, shot on Cinestill 800t.

Kodak Tri-X 400

@sarahpierpont

This is my favorite black and white film stock. Hands down. It produces fine grain structure, has a high sharpness, and a wide exposure latitude. Meaning, this film can be use during the mid-day sun or it can be use on a low light setting. If you’re a black and white fan, I highly recommend bringing this film stock on your next adventure and you’ll be surprise with the results.

Kodak T-Max P3200

@dazelaterfilm

Last time I tried this film stock, the results came out so grainy. In hindsight, I should have shot it during an overcast day or at nighttime shot (like it was intended to). But, it doesn’t mean you can’t use it during the daytime. When properly expose, this image can produce such a beautiful sharpness and high contrast tones.

Wolfen NP 100

@sergavalos

I have never tried this film stock before. But, from what I’ve seen with Sergio’s photo below. This black and white has excellent fine grain and has a lovely contrast. From what I’ve read online, this film stock “is a motion picture film stock that has an anti-layer and anti-static layer to make it better for film photography”. We currently don’t sell this in our shop, but I might try getting one and get back to you guys on what I think.

Ilford HP5 400

@taroyanphoto

Wow. What can I say, I’m so blown away. The way Alex captured this is breathtaking: the angle, the use of foreground, high aperture to create a depth of field, and the use of black and white creates this powerful portraiture.

Kodak Portra 400

@sometimesitakefotos

Kokie did it again with his wonderful portraiture. Kodak Portra 400 is known as the go-to film stock for everyday use and professional work. The way that Kokie shot this portrait is chef’s kiss, as the exposure is perfectly balanced, allowing the model to pop out more.

Lomography Purple

@bttfdkr1997

I don’t often consider using Lomo Purple as an everyday film stock. In my opinion, this film is great for creative projects or if you’re shooting a lot of greenery. However, Akito had a different idea. He took some beautiful photos on his trip to the Getty Center. I would check his out Instagram to see more photos.

Kodak Portra 160

@nqsphotos

Nathan has always been skilled at composing his images. As a fine art photographer, he can capture an everyday image such as this picturesque frame of the Malibu Pier. If you haven’t seen his work, I would check it out.
