I photographed these two automobiles, once again, at the Block Party in Fitchburg. I’ve read a lot online about how Kodak Portra 400 renders the color green. Personally, I think it does a fantastic job. The Plymouth Road Runner appeared a few blog entries back, well, it’s hood did, anyways.
This custom hot rod, which you can see behind the Road Runner above, had a much more colorful, brighter green. Still rendered beautifully by Portra. The chrome of the engine just popped so nicely. The automobile looked just like a vintage Hot Wheels car from the 1960’s.
I don’t think either Portra, or FujiColor, are particularly accurate films. FujiColor would have likely exaggerated the greens either more than Portra. But, they are both gorgeous looking films. Really is hard to go wrong with either one. But Portra really worked out nicely here.
