The big news earlier this summer was Fuji’s decision to stop producing Velvia 50 in 4×5 and 8×10. This was a major blow to most large format color landscape photographers.
I use far more color negative film than I do slide film these days — so the announcement didn’t strike close to home.
With Kodak’s plan to sell their film division — I’m now wondering about the future of my beloved color negative film.
I’ve recently taken a liking to Kodak Portra 160 for landscape on large format. It’s a very forgiving film (unlike Velvia), and the broad exposure latitude allows generous artistic interpretation of the negative.
What if Kodak color negative film goes the way of Fuji Velvia?
Well, there’s always black and white.
