Portrait sessions at Singapore Botanic Garden

We decided to go to Botanic Garden for some portrait photos, as well as to test the Kodak Portra 400VC film on our camera. Our first session was in the late afternoon last Saturday. The sky was very cloudy, almost like it was gonna rain soon.

Somehow this shot becomes my fav...

The scene was getting dark pretty quick. We could only finish half of the roll and decided to go back. Here is the last shot of the day by Admiré. It is not a portrait as I'm too shy to be her model.

Our second session to finish the roll was on a beautiful, sunny and breezy Sunday morning. Couldn't ask for more as we really enjoyed it!

For me, the colors of the Kodak Portra are fine, vivid as its name (VC) suggests, but I'm more impressed by its sharpness. And it is pretty contrasty. If you haven't tried one, maybe you should ;)

Ps: due to some other commitments, I will be away from this blog for a while. The blog won't be inactive though, if Admiré has something to post. Hope that I could get back here soon, when things are done :)...
