People shots with Agfa Precisa CT100

Ever wondered what people look like when shot on Agfa Precisa CT100 slide film on a hot and very sunny day after they’ve been stuck in a crowd for a while ?

Well, quite red is the answer, in a vintage sort of way.

These shots are from the 134th annual Durham Miners Gala.

I took with me the little Olympus 35RC loaded with Agfa Precisa CT100 slide film, AKA Fuji Provia 100. For most shots I had to wave the camera in the air and guess the composition, as there were about 200,000 people there – but here I’ve omitted the worst views of the back of somebody’s head.

  1. I’ve used CT-100 over the last couple of years, mostly for nostalgic reasons, and I find that a properly exposed slide, on slow film like the CT-100, is still capable of giving a better image than any of the digital cameras I own. Of course in real world situations where the light is low or in fast action digital is much better, but I often wonder how good film would be today if it had continued to be developed.
