The Whole Roll - Kodak Portra 400

Well, I’m back. Happy new year and welcome to 2021. I finally got around to developing this roll of Kodak Portra that I shot back in October/early November. I had completely forgot about it let alone remembered what I even shot. Once I got the processed roll back, I thought I’d try scanning it in as a digital contact sheet. I didn’t really know what to expect, it took me a long time to get it done - especially with all the quirks of scanning on the Epson V600 + Epson Scan software, but the results came out somewhat well.

All that being said, I want to continue to share more of the whole roll because with all that’s being shared on social media and how it’s interpreted, I want to let people know that not all shots come out perfect. In fact, the biggest joy of shooting film is the imperfections. The things that create character. The mistakes that cost you and force you to learn. The imperfections that you had never expected but somehow end up being more visually pleasing. This is it. This is raw. This is the whole roll.
