The other day I was wanting to test Kodak Portra 400 film, so I did a lunch time walk around Austin and it’s downtown waterfront area.

For a short walk, I was able to get some nice shots of the waterfront and buildings. I was actually quite pleased with the results, and I like the Portra films in general. The 400 speed is quite flexible too.

One thing I’ve heard about Portra is that it has excellent skin tones. I don’t generally take portraits, but I need to add some people to my photos to test the colors… a future post, maybe.

 

It’s been quite hazy in the city because of the summer heat, and the humidity near the water. All in all, a pretty nice day with lots of people enjoying being outdoors.

    1. I’ve been anxious to try the new Ektachrome – maybe it will be available in the UK before the US… if it is, I’ll gladly trade you a roll of Portra for a roll of new Ektachrome!
