Thanks! I'm sure Portra is old hat to many here, but I only shot B&W film back in high school. Trying out medium format for the past few years, I'm new to a lot of film stocks, and enjoying shooting a variety to find what clicks. Portra 160 was the first color negative I tried, and I loved the colors (though I make adjustments in post, so it's mostly a starting point). Portra 400 feels similar in a lot of ways, and ISO 400 is a lot more flexible to shoot. A new favorite! I just have to remember to bring my NDs or CPL so I can still shoot wide openGraham, I am absolutely loving the colors from your Portra images!
Thank you again, Peter, for teaching me something, this time about bespoke shoes. I had to look up the term for cordwainer and now it all makes sense. I learn so much on this forum.From a recent walkabout in town. The only surviving cordswainer in Singapore. This gentleman is about 80 years old, and still comes to work to make bespoke shoes in his little workshop in Golden Mile Tower. Hasselblad 500 C/M wih Carl Zeiss Planar 80mm. Hand held. Fujifilm Provia 100 positive film. Unintentional self portrait in the mirror.

The image is very nice and the colors are excellent. Portra has my attention right now.
Love that photo.. 35 years!My preferred film for portraits is Porta, probably 400 exposed at 200 but processed at 400. But recently am playing with Cinestill 800 as well as the new Kodak Gold 200.
Here is another photograph taken with the 500 C/M Planar 80 and Provia 100.This gentleman is also an octogenarian. His name is Jimmy and he runs a traditional restaurant selling Hainanese styled western food. I have eating at his restaurant for the last 35 years. Photographed outside his eatery.
