Shooting Film: Kodak Ektar 100

Shooting Film: Kodak Ektar 100

…continuing my exploring of Yanaka on film.    This time with a roll of Kodak Ektar 100.  It was fun to go out and shoot 3 rolls of film and come back with three very different feeling sets of photographs.

Today’s Configuration:  Leica M6-J, Kodak Ektar 100, various lenses.

  1. I assume you shot both the Ektar and the Astia on the same day. Which set of photos do you prefer?

    I can’t decide but I think I’m leaning a little towards Astia.

  2. Looks to me that your getting closer to your subjects. Nice work. Looking forward to shots from Your new Leica M.

  3. Thanks Jim.

  4. kawaii :D

  5. Dave,
    Excellent pictures! I really like the richness of the colors and the image is so clean. Very good job!

  6. Thanks Katira…

  7. Hey Dave! Great work. Do you scan your negatives yourself or do you get them scanned by the people who develope your film? I’m drawn to your images that don’t have a typical “subject”. The way you use negative space almost becomes the subject itself. Great use of shallow depth of field.

  8. Thanks Micus. I scan some of my own and sometimes I let the lab do it. It just saves me a ton of time to have them do it and unless I am printing their scanning is fine. I like how you describe my photography. I struggle to explain it but I think ‘using enough negative space so the negative space becomes the subject itself’ is a pretty good way.

  9. your picture are so beautiful. I do love Ektar 100

  10. Thanks Nicky. I am loving experimenting with Film.
