Photo of the Week – July 3rd 2014

The boy was very excited to have his photo taken. Looks a little dangerous, doesn’t it?

Notes: I tried out several types of colour film so far, and I’ve made up my mind that Kodak Portra is my colour film of choice. The vibrancy and warmth of the film just do it for me. I shot several rolls of colour film while I was on the Côte d’Azur this June (blog posts coming up soon!), on Superia and Portra, and I’ve come to the conclusion that Portra is my favourite colour film emulsion. At least for sunny southern France. Also, shooting the streets of France with a Leica is the way it’s meant to be. But more on that soon…
