A New Love of Ektar

I discovered two things on this trip. 

1) I love Ektar

2) Ektar loves light

Ok, three....Tri-X still rocks....but I knew that anyway.

I spend a lot of time in Poole, Dorset...the pull of the family and the stunning coastlines is enough to draw me down several times a year. It also provides me with some superb photographic opportunities too. 

I have recently been trying out some Ektar as well. Firstly I rated it around 400 mainly for some indoor stuff, which was pretty good, but then I read this little post (http://www.wendylaurel.com/shoot-kodak-ektar-100-film-tutorial) by Wendy Laurel (Thanks for the tip off James) and thought I'd give it a go. It was an exceptionally bright day, and these were shot around lunch time. I rated at around 80 is my memory serves me correctly (the Tri-x was metered at 200).

I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with these...back to point 1, I have a new found love for Ektar. So much so I've just ordered another batch for my trip to Vegas next week.

All shots were taken using the Hasselblad 500 c/m, Carl Zeiss 80mm 2.8 Planar and scanned at Carmencita Film Lab in Valencia (who I've also been trialling and so far, I'm very happy with the results)

Hope you enjoy.
