[Leica M7] Draw beautiful spring flowers with Kodak Ektar 100 color

Since I bought my film camera last winter, I’ve been picturing this moment for long. When I first used Kodak Ektar 100, I took portraits photos. Then I got disappointed because Ektar film made the skin look too much yellow. But I guessed it might look great with spring flowers. I turns out that my guess was correct.

Just the way I thought. The color is absolutely gorgeous. It made flower color pop by far.

What about white cherry blossom? Will it look boring?

No problem at all!

With blue sky in the background, even white cherry blossom color pops.

Ektar film made Light pink cherry blossom flowers color pop as well which is my favorite color. Now I realize one film can’t fit all situations. Typically with film camera, you can’t have no control over white balance unlike digital camera. But you can choose correct film for the correct background light or color. Ektar may not look good with portraits (skin color) but it looks great with spring flowers. (Or maybe flowers in general)
