Shooting more Kodak Portra 400, 35mm

Orocovis, Puerto Rico at sunrise

Took a while to get developed, but here are some shots from one roll of Kodak Portra 400 shot on a Minolta x-700. For the last few shots taken at Penn’s Landing on a very cloudy day, I used the on camera meter and then overexposed by one stop. As fun as it is to be working with film, it’s frustrating to not see what you’re getting right away.  I try to keep some basic photography rules in the back of my mind, but still…I don’t know exposures off the top of my head so I’m always wondering “will this shot come out the way I see and envision it?”  Guess why all I keep reading when it comes to film is, “practice and see for yourself!” At least these came out better than my last roll!

Next few shots are from earlier in May at Penn’s Landing, Philadelphia, PA.
