Every Now And Then I Need Some Color In My Photography...

I love shooting an processing black and white film.  I feel like the contrast and grain of black and white film adds so much character to a photograph.  I told myself at the beginning of the year that most of the rolls of film that I shoot will be black and white.  Mainly because I like the look and I can keep my photos looking consistent by the way I shoot and process them.   But I have a confession to make.  I really like to shoot and process color film as well.  

I wasn't 100% sure I could process the color film because the temperatures need to be so precise.  But it isn't hard at all, over the past year I have been able to develop my color rolls of film at home.  I get a c-41 unicolor kit from the local camera store and town and when I have 4 or 5 rolls of color film saved up I will process them.  Now it does take me awhile.  Since I mainly shoot black and white, it might take 4 months to get 4 color rolls but the it worth it and fun to get a different look from you photographs.  Since I am not shooting that much color film I went back to buying Kodak Portra.  I was shooting Fuji Superia or Agfa color 35mm film, but the look of Portra is totally worth the price!  When I have a little extra money I shoot Kodak vision film!  It is the 35mm film used for movies!  The 250D and 500T films are amazing and in my opinion the best color 35mm film I have used so far.  

So get out and shoot some color film!  And if you process film, don't be afraid to grab a c-41 processing kit and develop it yourself!  It will totally be worth it! ~ @RoyceOnTheRadio
