By April 2, 2024April 3rd, 2024No Comments

Here are some of our favorite film photos from our customers for this month:

ILFORD HP5 400

@charliesfilmmemory

The black and white films have always been a timeless classic – this is especially true for HP5 film stocks. The rich, deep blacks and creamy mid-tones produces that nostalgia and sentiment whenever I see people use HP5 films.

LOMOGRAPHY PURPLE 100

@e6film

It’s rare to see Lomography Purple in the wild, but when we do see it, we are often impressed with the results. It produces surreal, dream-like images with a purple hue cast over the entire frame, encouraging photographers to think outside the box and embrace experimentation.

KODAK PORTRA 800

@joce.james

Kodak Portra 800 is a go-to choice for professional photographers for several reasons. Its ISO 800 sensitivity makes it versatile for low-light situations while maintaining excellent color accuracy and fine grain. Portra 800 excels in capturing natural skin tones and offers a wide exposure latitude, ensuring consistent results in various lighting conditions. Overall, I think it’s a reliable option for producing stunning images like the one below.

CINESTILL 800T

@aaronpurkey

I’m inspired by Aaron’s habitual practice of bringing his point-and-shoot everywhere he goes. Sometimes you miss out on incredible candid shots because the camera you have isn’t inconspicuous or just a burden to carry.

KODAK PORTRA 400

@erinjeanhussey

Subjects are crucial in photography, as it sets a main focal point for what you want your viewers to see. But, another thing, that most people often forget, is the importance of location. For me, it’s an intriguing photo whenever I see photos that are out of the ordinary, like this one below.

LOMOGRAPHY 400

@leo.chaos

Normally, when people take photos it’s usually through an eye-level. But, I think what I enjoy about this photograph is how Leo was able to experiment and get down on the ground to create a foreground in the image. It makes me feel like I’m part of the photo below.

KODAK GOLD 200

@jjow3l

Before the snow melts and summer begins, we highly recommend using Kodak Gold 200 to capture snow due to its balanced color reproduction and fine grain structure. The film tends to capture the subtle variations in snow texture and tone, maintaining good contrast without blowing out highlights. Additionally, its warmth can counteract the cool tones that might dominate snowy scenes, resulting in a pleasing, natural-looking image.

CINESTILL 400D

@patrickvincee

With spring in full effect, it’s a great opportunity to go out there and take some photos of the spring flowers.

KODAK COLORPLUS 200

@kevindelgaddo

If you’re planning to go on a road trip or travel sometime this year, I suggest buying a few rolls of Kodak Colorplus 200. This film stock is a budget-friendly option that delivers vibrant colors and good contrast, capturing moments with a timeless quality. The colors are true to life, making it ideal for capturing everyday scenes, portraits, and landscapes. Its affordability makes it an attractive choice for those who want to experiment with film photography without breaking the bank.

KODAK EKTAR 100

@rydka

Kodak Ektar 100 is renowned for its vibrant colors, fine grain, and exceptional sharpness. This is suitable when you are capturing landscapes and environmental portraits. Here’s a shot that Ryan took that perfectly illustrates the greens and reds.
