Kodak Portra is a professional level film admired for it’s high level
of detail from a very fine grain, smooth, natural colours but still
with a bit of punch and richness, open shadows without crushed blacks
and for being hard to blow out highlights.
Is Kodak Portra a film without character? For me, for what I want from film, yes. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to be negative about what is an excellent film. It’s just to me, Kodak Portra is too perfect.
I’m a Leica Street photographer. I am, by my own admission a gear nut, but I don’t buy gear just to test it or pixel peep. I’m only interested in the art that can be produced with the gear. And seeing what emotions can be brought out in those who see my photos.
