Marathon

Challenged myself again this year to capture some of Metz marathon on medium format.
It’s fun with a manual focus Hasselblad and runners passing at 12-13mph.
Missed a couple of shots, but quite pleased with the results. Might try it next year with the Fuji GX680!

I’ve also used some Fuji Pro H 400 colour negative film.
I usually use Kodak Portra, mainly because it costs considerably less!
Having now used it for some landscape shots, I’ll be trying it for some portaiture today. It seems to be quite nice although possibly with less latitude for exposure than Portra, maybe only one to one and a half stops either way, somewhat like Fuji’s lovely transparency films. The colour is reminiscent of Provia; quite saturated.

More soon!
