Last weekend I shot an expired (2005) roll
of Kodak Portra 400NC in my Mamiya C3. I prefer shooting B&W but my husband likes me to shoot color, so I decided to capture some color while there's still some to be had and while my last batch of Flexicolor C-41 chemistry for the year still has its mojo.
I just got 15 rolls of C41 processed by a local lab (Gaslamp Photo in San Diego, CA) with some of them being 2+ years since I photographed with the stock.
Really very happy with the quality of everything and very impressed by Portra, even more than I had been. Will be putting scans of prints up in the Gallery here as I can get them transferred into 1s and 0s.
Short rant: Make some prints if you haven't in a while!
I've been everywhere ooooohhh yeaahhhh still I'm standing tall.
More 35mm HP5+ for me.
