What To Expect From This Film
The style and look of this film varies depending on the rating, metering and available light.
In well lit, bright locations, this film can definitely give that light and airy look with muted whites and soft highlights.
You’ll also see a lot of warm tones from this film. It’s similar to Kodak Portra 400 in that way, producing warm colors but still with a very natural color palette.
It also renders skin tones beautifully! It has the right amount of warmth without any shifting colors to create lovely and natural looking skin tones.
Along with its beautiful tones, Kodak ColorPlus produces a minimal amount of grain, especially compared to other 35mm consumer films. You’ll see a bit more grain if it’s underexposed, so stick to shooting at box speed or a bit overexposed if you prefer a low-grain look.
I’ve found the best way to rate Kodak ColorPlus 200 is at 100 and to meter for the shadows. This film does very well when overexposed, and it helps give your images vibrant colors and minimal grain.
It is a super versatile film and can be used both indoors and outdoors. I use this stock indoors quite a bit because it renders skin tones beautifully!
Like most 35mm films, this film shines in pretty, natural light. However, I would likely suggest choosing a different film stock for low light situations given the lower ISO rating and 35mm film format.
