With Kodak’s re-introduction of Ektachrome, I just had to try some. A couple weekends ago there was an antique auto show in my town. A few days earlier, the photo lab I use emailed and said they had Ektachrome in stock, so I took the opportunity to give it a try.
In my humble opinion, the colors look nice. I’m not sure I would be compelled to use it instead of Portra, or another color film. I will have to try it a few more times to get a better feel for the colors and how it looks in different situations.
In the mean time, here are some of the images I shot at the auto show. Take a look, and leave a comment if you notice anything good or bad – or if you have an Ektachrome experience you’d like to share, I’d love to hear about it.
To shoot these, I used my Olympus OM-2 with an Olympus 24mm f2.8 lens.
