pensacola beach on film

I bought a an old point & shoot film camera earlier this spring, and have been enjoying experimenting with film photography. My favorite film so far is Kodak Ektar 100, because it captures colors so beautifully saturated and vibrant and expresses color the way I envision it through my eyes. A trip to Pensacola Beach along Florida’s northwest coast was the perfect opportunity to play with this film. It does best in sunlight, but it also captures gorgeously golden hour light and sunsets.
