Fuji400h and Portra 400: A Comparison

What I love about shooting film is that each film stock has it's own personality; a unique way of seeing light and interpreting color.

When you know your stocks, you can make choices on what to shoot to achieve your style and vision.

It's like choosing to paint with oils or water colors!  So cool!

Today I'm talking about two of my favorite films, Fuji 400h and Portra 400.

As you can see from the examples below, both film stocks have an amazing range.  The difference is in tone.
