Kodak Gold 200 – 35mm – Nikon f100 – Seattle

Part two of our ferry day adventure. These are the photos I took with my Nikon F100 and this time I tried out some Kodak Gold 200 that I purchased from B&H. I ended up liking the colors Joe was getting a lot more. Until we went to the lake the next day with little Dan. This film does better in the bright sun than it does on a slightly overcast day. Good to know 🙂 I metered all the shots with the in camera meter, over exposing all by a few stops.

Noticing a green tint to it. A lot of time a photo can look different depending on where and who it was scanned by. So I will try this same film out and send it to a different lab just to compare the colors. Im thinking about trying out the FIND lab next.

This is a little too muddy/ vintage looking for me. I prefer more vibrant colors and true white highlights.

Took this inside the ferry

Gia took a little dip in port Ludlow. I honestly didn’t think this shot would be in focus, she was running towards me so quickly I thought for sure I missed it. But looks pretty good to me 🙂

Notice how much greener my shots are compared to Joe’s. Now I know I prefer the Ultra Max on a cloudy day near the water.

Photo above: this was the next day. I still had about 12 frames left so we walked down to South Lake Union Park. Again, I am obsessed with boats so if I have frames left on a roll I will use them on 1 of three things. Boats, my dog, or portraits. Notice how much better the colors are here. It was a clear sunny day, around 12:30 in the afternoon. The highlights are still too yellow for my taste. But I like the blue tones much more.

This aqua color is from the large man made duck pond they have at the park. Its a circle of water that people drive small remote control boats in.

He always bends down to say cheese lol. He figures its such a tiny hole (the lens) that it won’t see him if he is standing.

  1. Wow! Those are great! I love the overall character of those shots! May i ask if you processed them in LR or PS? My analog pictures are usually much noisier…

    • Hi AKOB, I didn’t process them at all. Just got them developed and scanned at my local lab. They give me a cd of the scans and I load them onto the computer. The grain/noise has a lot to do with the iso of the film, the lighting you are in etc. Some bw films can be super grainy.

      • Thanks a lot for the info! That makes your pictures even better! I tried quite a few films, also more expensive ones like ilford hp5+ and also differend ISO. Well i guess its me somehow! : ) I´m looking forward to see more of your stuff! Cheers from vienna!
