Kodak New Portra 160 and 400

Here are the results of a photo session with the kind and beautiful Joana which was a good opportunity to try (again) the New Portra 160 and 400.

I wanted to compare how the film handles at box speed and also pushed but developing it without any kind of compensation.
Please read the captions.

    Great photos! Amazing latitude, pushing but developing at box speed. Cool!

    • Thank you Steve.
      I’ve seen examples of Portra 400 pushed up to 1600 and developed at box speed and… yes, the low lights and the shadows will suffer from that, but it still delivers pretty good results.
