Spring Photowalk in Elora Part One

The Oakville Camera Club did a long awaited return to the Elora Ontario, on Mother's Day Weekend, we wound up with 10 members come up for an informal walk around and culinary tour. I love Elora as a nice day trip escape from the Golden Horseshoe.

I wanted to shoot colour and ran with Agfa Vista 400 through my mid-1970s vintage Nikon F2SB. The film is cheap, you're looking about $6 Cdn per roll for 36 exposures. Now, this is not the Agfa Vista of old, this is made in Japan by everyone's guess being Fujifilm. Now I have a friend swear it's Superia 400, I don't think it is, My guess it is either rebadged Industrial 400 or a contract run through Fuji machinery. This film is a contrasty hits you in the face colour film. Portra 400 this ain't. That said depending on your subject matter's skin town and you could get a decent portrait with almost a bleach bypass feel.

For shoots like this, Vista 400 is really nice, I've used it in the city on a semi-overcast day and used it in the bright sunshine like what we had up in Elora.

Camera: Nikon F2SB, Nikkor Pre Ai 50 f1.4 lens.
Film: Agfa Vista 400
