    This is what Ektar 100 looks like. It likes to be shot about 1/2 to one stop underexposed.
    Looks absolutely great. So much more character than digital. Still no way I'd change to film, the lazy bastard that I am.

    Here are some of mine. I'm having issues posting photos from Flickr though... Just me? Probably.

    Crane those Ektar shots are great for outdoors..I need to look into some of that. Were all your subjects pretty stationary?

    Don't switch but augment! One thing that shooting film with an older SLR will do for you is teach you to slow down and wait for the shot. Take that to shooting digital and you'll get a whole lot more good looking pics.
    Great colour on that Ektar.
    Indeed. I like very saturated bright colors and a warmer look in general, Ektar delivers that.

    Yes they were since I was shooting a very shallow DOF. Up around f6 and a bit more distance and it wouldn't be a problem taking pics of say a dancer. I just got back a roll of Portra 160. All I can say is holy shit this stuff is great! Deep colors, excellent skin tones, great contrast and sharp as a razor. This time around I stuck with f stops from 2.8 to 5. I haven't looked at the low res scans yet. If they aren't clean and crisp then I'll have the negatives scanned as high res tiffs and convert them to loss less jpegs before I post them up.

    /\\/\\/\\ I see those all the time when I'm hiking. They're really pretty but for the life of me I can't remember it's name.
