THIS CHAPTER COULD BE A HUNDRED PAGES LONG—AND EVEN THEN, IT WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO CONTAIN MY LOVE FOR FILM. SEE THE FILM STOCKS THAT TRIP MY TRIGGER. FIND THE ONES THAT TRIP YOURS.

Fuji or Kodak Film

I GET ASKED, “FUJI OR KODAK?” PRETTY REGULARLY.

All: Contax 645, Kodak Portra 400, 80mm lens, f/2. San Francisco, CA.

As much as I love Kodak’s new Portra line of films, I don’t care about name. I care about final product for my clients and for myself. I am completely dedicated to film, and will shoot whichever film works best for me in a given shooting situation.

If Hershey comes out with a film in formats that I need and with the specifications I require, then you can call me Chocolate Canlas.
