Our granddaughter came over one sunny Sunday morning not long ago, so I got out my Yashica-D and loaded my first roll of the new 120 Kodak Gold 200 into it. I shot the whole roll that morning.
My wife brought our granddaughter into the yard to plant some annuals into larger pots. Whatever Grandma is doing, our granddaughter wants to do it too!
I took one meter reading in this well-shaded area and made all of my shots here using it, knowing that Gold’s wide exposure latitude would cover any minor variations in light from shot to shot. I shot these at f/5.6 or f/8, which in this light yielded a shutter speed too slow to freeze motion.
I attached my Spiratone close-up kit and photographed some flowers in our yard. The phlox I planted last year sent up just a few blooms this year.
Margaret bought a flat of these purple annuals and is putting them in pots as she has time. Some are on the porch and some are on the deck.
When I’ve shot Kodak Gold 200 in 35mm, I’ve gotten colors that are a more saturated than this. But I find this moderate saturation to be pleasing.
It’s easy to see that Kodak Gold 200 in 120 is a good general-purpose color film. I look forward to the four rolls I have remaining.
