As I get more opportunities for road trips, I’m able to get some nice Kodak ColorPlus 200 photos with my Yashica Electro 35 GTN on my recent road trip in Malaysia.
I have a few film rolls stashed away in the fridge at the moment, and I attempted to shoot with Kodak 200 while on the road trip to Genting Highlands and also some portraits on film in Bukit Bintang.
This is my first roll of Kodak ColorPlus 200 film, shot with my Yashica viewfinder film camera, and I have no idea how it will turn out.
I was quite happy with my previous Kodak Portra 400 shoot end result when I use the shoot film overexpose technique throughout my holiday in Georgetown.
It’s convenient to have a professional film developer scan my film photos into digital format and print them in a travel photo book.
I was actually trying to come up with a moody theme for the portrait shoot and it turned out quite well in black and white with one of the the Fujifilm recipes I’ve created, the Noir Bloom.
Currently learning as a travel film photographer, I was experimenting and discovered that most of my film shot with the Kodak 200 is also nice, but the composition is a little off when shooting vertical portraits on a film rangefinder.
I enjoy shooting film because of its unique color science, film grain, and the fact that I have no idea what the end result will be. These are some of the factors that keep me shooting films again and again.
On my film camera, I’m shooting at box speed with the ISO set to 200 this time. I was concerned about the weather that day for the portrait photoshoot because it was cloudy and there was no sunlight. I think it was actually a good thing because the film came out okay.
Here are some of the Kodak ColorPlus 200 photos from my short road trip and also portraits from one of my moody theme photoshoots.

Photobook Printing For Portfolio
I always use my Fujifilm X-T4 and Yashica film rangefinder to take colour and B&W photos. If you want to do photobook printing for yourself, friends or family, then you can find some great solutions on the internet. I always choose Photobook as my primary photobook printing service because they had very good reviews and very fast service.
They deliver the book for printing within 5-7 days, depending on their workload and their price was also reasonable after applying the Photobook coupon on checkout.
The book contains many of my favourite photos in different formats (from film or digital) and it’s perfect for taking away and showing to anyone who loves travel and adventure or just to showcase as a portfolio.
I was very impressed with the quality of the printing as the film print on the photobook looks really amazing especially for the Layflat Photobooks.
I prefer film photography more than using the Fujifilm X-T4 for some reason. Shooting film will put your patience to the test and force me to concentrate more on photography. When shooting with film rolls, the end result is unknown and mysterious, which adds to the excitement.
I’ve got a few film rolls stored away in the fridge, including the Ilford HP5 Plus 400, Kodak Ultramax 400, Kodak ColorPlus 200 and Kodak Pro Image 100, ready for the next film trip adventure.
