We revisit Garnet, Montana.  This time in color with Kodak Portra 400:


For More...Go To 52 Rolls.

If you seen my recent film comparisons....not too thrilled by these muted colors.  
So I'm sticking with E-6 from now on.

Raptor Education Foundation Needs Your Help

The Raptor Education Foundation needs your help to fund a new Eagle Aviary.  They are adopting a juvenile eagle that has become imprinted on humans and cannot care for himself in the wild.  Read his story HERE.

Since he is a healthy bird he needs an aviary to be able to Fly. Please help him turn into a beautiful Symbol  for Our Country:

(Note:  The bird above is a current resident.

52 Rolls Week #33 Updates

Some experiments based on suggestions from 52 Rolls posted comments.

First lets revisit Portra 160 with warming filter:


The suggestion was to adjust the White balance and reduce the 'warming'.  Now I typically use warming filters with chrome films, which tend to be very blue.  Example below, same scene, Velvia 50 with warming filter:


Now lets look at Portra 160 with White Balance adjusted (in Photoshop Levels):


And Portra 160 with both the White Balance and Black adjusted (in Photoshop Levels):


This one is getting closer to the natural color, but still a bit off.  One viewer commented that your film choice is a reflection of your interpretation of reality.  I like that!  So I'll stick with the Chrome version of reality.
