Kodak Competition: POPART 800

By Paul McKay

POPART 800 - Kodak Winter Competition 🏆

Welcome to our Winter 2022 Kodak film photography competition! This year we are focusing on Kodak's incredible Portra 800 emulsion.

Portra 800 is a high-speed professional film - available in 35mm and 120 - and will give you gorgeous tones, beautiful colours, and soft contrast in your film images.

The competition rules are simple:

1) the photos must have been taken on Portra 800 (either in previous years or specially for the competition)

2) you must own the rights to the photo

3) that's it!

We don't have a specific theme for the competition, so please let your imagination run wild. The images will be judged by a representative for Kodak after the competition has closed - and they will be looking for photographs that show off the colours and quality of Portra 800, alongside the usual creativity, humour and composition that makes for great photography 📸

What are the prizes?

One Grand Prize, made up of an entire goodie bag of Kodak films! 🎁

Four Runner-Ups, who will each receive a few rolls of their favourite Kodak film

We will announce winners within the next few weeks - once the judging has been done with Kodak.

Example of what's possible with Portra 800!

Great tones, useful iso, reasonably low grain - Nicholas Moore

I shot this film with an Olympus Om2n, 50mm f1.8 at one stop overexposed, during golden hour, and was extremely happy with the results. The skin tones in the portraits look great, and I am also really happy with the landscape shots. I'd recommend this film to anyone looking for a great emulsion that performs well in lower light.

Pentax 17 Camera Review: A Modern Wonder

The Pentax 17 film camera has arrived! I've been lucky enough to be involved in the testing of the camera, and can now share my experience. How does the camera feel in my hand, what do its different settings mean, how does it perform in different lighting situations, and what are the results with different films? I’ve put thorough multiple rolls and taken literally hundreds of sample photos with the Pentax 17 so we have lots of images to learn from. Let’s get started!

Summer of Phoenix: A Holiday in Greece

I spent last week on the Greek coast - the southern tip of the Peloponnese to be exact - and took the opportunity to shoot some Harman Phoenix 35mm film! While it was brilliant fun to test it through the dark winter days when it first launched in December 2023, I've been waiting to see it shine in the sun.
