Istanbul, 1996:

 

Fuji DL-1000 (probably) - Kodak Gold 100

I really love this one, James.  There is so much people watching going on and so many of the people are doing interesting things.  Then there is the bird in motion blur even though the people are all walking and are not caught in motion blur.  Not really sure exactly why but this is one of my favorites from you 👌

I drive end of june with my roadbike in the south of france for 5 days. I will take two Voigtländer Vito CS with me. One with Rollei RPX25 and  in the other I want to use Portra 400. Will be this a problem, because the camera can only stop down until f16 an 1/500 in the sun  ? The years before I took Fuji 200 and  I had no problems with overexposure. I think Portra 160 has different colours. Can I use Portra 400  ? 

Should be no problem  I push Portra 400 to 800 all the time and use it in bright sunlight and the most I get to is f8.5 and 1/1000

I think I probably posted this in 2016 when I took it. A pretty house I noticed driving past. Funny thing, now we've bought it!

very interesting effect, Steve.  Love how you are experimenting with different films.

Seen at an exhibition around the design arts of Ferrari, Berlin,1994. The fresh scans look a thousand times better than the prints I got in the days...

 

Camera model unknown - Agfa XRG 400

wow, love that red.  Hope you bought one as you probably would have made a fortune on the investment! 😉

I have a colleague at work who has a Ferrari and he tells me that Ferrari is quite limiting in terms who can buy a brand new car - apparently you have to be an existing owner and contractually promise not to sell the car within two years of purchasing it.

I didn't have much memories about the pictures I have taken on that trip to Istanbul and also think that the lively scene at that place has much to discover. I found some disturbing pictures of myself on that roll, too. My fashion style in the 90's seemed to lack almost anything in regards of fashion :)

The Ferrari cars at that exhibition where definitely not for sale. As much as I like the style of these cars, I couldn't afford one than as I can't afford one now. My private goal remains to buy a Porsche, though 😎

I've been revisiting some of my earlier Kodachromes. Kodachrome X, which became Kodachrome 64, was my main colour film through my early shooting days of the 1970s. The building in this picture has been replaced by a far more modern one, but I'm pleased to say the sign survived:

Carrum Bowling Club 1975

Canon TLb, FD 24mm f2.8 SSC, Kodachrome X

Wonderful mood in this one and how cool is it to see these vibrant colors in all their freshness after all these years since the photons did their magic on the Kodachrome emulsion!

Love the colours of Kodakchrome, do any of the films remaining today come close? If so I'd like to hear from anyone with a view.

IMHO: Kodak Eastman Motion Picture Film developed in their original Juice (not in C-41) may be a candidate (look at their advertising material). Particular the 250 Emulsion looks interesting. Cinestill, developed in the same soup is of course identical. However, problems with removing the black gunk on the back and with getting the hands on the developer abound.

wow that is super cool, Steve.  And the subject matter has an edge to it that makes it quite complimentary.

Thanks Adam - the black crows caught my eye and I  had to snap, even though the camera in hand had the redscaled film.

Thank you sincerely James, Steve, Adam and for all those who gave my early kodachrome a nod of approval.

Steve, I truly don't believe there is anything quite like kodachrome, although having said that there is no one kodachrome to base that statement off, as it had quite a few iterations over its long career. But the colours were never emulated by an Ektachrome, for instance, and the Fuji and Agfa chromes etc have and had their own distinctive flavor but nothing quite like the muscular Kodachrome. It doesn't necessarily mean of course that Kodachrome was "better" (except for longevity which I think is indispuitable) but it certainly had its own "look". I especially like it in the kind of low-light scene that my Carrum Bowling Club picture shows - I think it really shone under low light conditions - so in that respect it probably seems a comparatively "moody" or "atmospheric" film, a quality which I think is generally favoured.

Of current films, I defer to Christoph's suggestions of cine films. I've used Cinestill but, with the remjet removal process or whatever, I didn't find it particularly reminded me of Kodachrome. I think Kodak (or whoever it is currently) have gone for a nod to Kodachrome with both Ektar and Ektachrome 100, but it is just a nod. Still, in the absence of anything else, there are those to try - Cinestill, Ektar, E100. Of course adroitness with Photoshop or whatever editing software will get you close, too, as will processing in LAB colour.

Adam, you're incorrigible!

James, this is so beautiful. A sunny day in Paris with the one you love - it doesn't really get much better than that does it?

And the bird packing the M6, totally radioactive? My Geiger counter is love with Lomo 800CN, and Hitchcock didn't have to storyboard it.
