20 Years Later. Time for a new brand of film.

I got an email yesterday informing me that my 21 year high school reunion was being planned. My first thought was, Hey, what happened to the 20 year reunion? My second thought was, Yikes! 21 years since high school? I’m an old guy now! Oh well, I don’t really feel any older than I did 20 years ago.

In a completely unrelated development, I tried shooting some Fuji 35mm film instead of my usual Kodak for the first time in about 15 years. I’ve been increasingly disappointed with the quality of Kodak film over the last few years and professional photographers keep telling me I should dump it for Fuji. Years ago, Fuji film used to have a reputation for turning out photos with a weird greenish tint. I tried some back then, thought the color was bad and haven’t used it since. But they’ve made a lot of improvements since then. The Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400 that I just tried produced much better looking photos than the Kodak Royal Gold 400 I’ve been using. I’ll have to shoot a few more rolls before I’m convinced but it looks hopeful.
