If you know me in any capacity, through real life or through the film community online, you know I’m a diehard 35mm photographer. Why? The level of grain on 35mm film, the distinct “look” of 35mm photos, the portability of 35mm cameras. I carried an RB67 once… it didn’t go well for me.
But there’s another reason too: Kodak Gold.
What We Love
This film is *chef’s kiss* when you want to get reds like Ektar but better than Ektar. This film brings the vibrancy and richness of the colors out of a cityscape, emphasizing highlights you didn’t won’t even see with just your eyes.
I love warm photos. When people look at my photos, I want them to feel like they’re literally standing in an afternoon sunbeam streaming through their windows. This film makes that happen — period.
Film photographers are always asking the film gods to bless us with more film and new stocks, but particularly within the past few years after price hikes and supply chain issues, we’re all feeling the crunch (or rather, not hearing the sound of our cameras loading). But this film is brand new and abundant, available through online retailers or your local shops.
