    When I was shooting weddings over 10 years ago, my portrait film of choice was Fuji NPS. Weddings themselves were shot on NPH

    I friggen loved Agfa Portrait 160....but like all good things, it has passed on.

    My current choice of film is Fuji 160S (previously 160)


    Here is a very pedestrian portrait I shot on 160s a few weeks ago. Very natural colors.

    If you have been happy with Reala I'd stay with it.

    I say this because I have used a variety of films and when printed at good labs; the normal, non-vivid, varieties have all worked well for skin tones BUT I've just started enlarging color negatives for myself.

    Last night my tail got kicked but good because of switching film types toward the end of the session.

    For now, I'll only be printing one color film type per session.

    Thanks for all the replies, think I'll try some Fuji 160S and Kodak Portra 160NC.

    Another vote for Reala or 160NC. Reala is such a great film, I went to Barcelona for vacation and took ONLY Reala with me. I shot about 30 rolls of the stuff and came back with some real winners. Everything from street portraits to night shots to hand-held interiors. Amazing stuff.

    Everybody has their favorite film. However, if you include a shot of an 18% gray card at the beginning of each roll, your printer will have a reference to adjust color to. When I worked for Olan Mills(a hundred years ago)the first shot was the gray card, then every so often throughout the day, adding another shot, followed by the final shot of the day. This allowed our printers to adjust their machines to optomize the settings on the machines for consistancy, even if you had to change film midsitting. I still shoot my gray card first thing when I shoot color, then use that as a reference for all my prints.

    I'm going to start doing this, maybe even black, white, and gray.
