Kodak Ektar 100

Kodak Ektar is a staple among primarily landscape photographers, due to this film having high saturation and vivid colours, along with a very fine grain structure. It’s also one of the most modern films around, seeing as it was (re)introduced in 2008.

My first encounter with Ektar 100, as well as with Portra 160, was that the film looked very blue. This could somewhat be corrected for in post, but not to the extent that it would look like originally intended. This “blue tint” was due to not having a strong enough developer, which is quite ironic as Kodak was the one inventing this modern C-41 color developing, haha.

In later tries with Portra and a stronger developer, the pictures lacked the blue tint. But since I’ve already shot these first rolls, I thought I would share them anyhow! Just note that this looks a bit different than what “normal” Ektar would.
