Leica + Kodak Portra 160 Portraits (Zurich Models)

Article includes series of Leica + Kodak Portra 160 Portraits I shot during one of my Leica photography workshops in Zurich

Zurich Model Photography Workshop, May 2015

Here is a series of 35mm Kodak Portra 160 portraits / film negative scans from my recent Zurich Model Photography Workshop.  I used my 1950s Leica M3 +Kodak Portra 160 for all photos on the trip.  On the 35mm Leica film camera I used a 1950s Leica Summicron 50mm f2 DR lens.  Big thanks to Option Model Agency who kindly supplied three of the models.

Leica + Kodak Portra 160 Portraits – Thoughts

This is the first time I have shot a lot of colour film for portraits and my first mass Leica + Kodak Portra 160 portraits session.  I was really impressed with the Portra 160 fine grain and skin tones for 35mm film.  I must start shooting more colour film!

Leica + Portra 160 vs CineStill 50D – Portraits

During the shoot with model Nadja I tested 35mm Kodak Portra 160 film vs 35mm CineStill 50D film.  Nadja’s photos to follow in the next post.
