Re: Trying film again after years of shooting digital

Thanks for the observations, and enjoyed the somewhat hallucinogenic reflections image.

I'm also pleased with the addition of the film section of DPR - as someone who never stopped shooting film, it seemed tiresome and arbitrary to exclude film, especially since scanning to digital has been widespread for ages, and the more discerning find the latest and greatest gear distinctions somewhat tiresome and inconsistent.

One thing I've found is that I've gone down in ISO to Portra 160, because I've wanted to be able to keep wider aperture while using fill flash outdoors, and because  even the higher ISO film doesn't make it indoors, so I'm back to using flash there anyway.

Likewise in mourning from Kodachrome 25.
