What is your film choice for a landscape or a portrait shot?

I take a lot of photos in both digital and film lately. So far, I wasn’t confident enough to shoot in film only in the event of important client’s photos but I pick film photos over digital photos eventually. This led me to think I should find my optimum solution for a landscape shot and portrait shot respectively.

So far my best pick for portrait shot is Kodak Portra 400. (Portra 160 might be better, but I take photos both in door and outdoor.) It produces beautiful color with enough grain to tell the audience that this is a film photography.

For a landscape shot, I haven’t made up my mind yet. Kodak Portra film is good but I’d like to try more. Maybe Kodak Ekta film might be better for the landscape or color positive film.

I inserted Fujifilm Provia color positive film in my Leica M7. Let’s see how this works with a landscape shot.

There are a few more photos with Kodak Portra 400 film.
