I plan to do a series of 4 x 5 photos of the Cave Creek, Arizona cowboys that I have become friends with. These are very colorful and wonderful guys, but I'll only get one chance with each. Most will be outdoor natural settings at fences, in barns, hay bails, horses, buffalos and etc. I plan to use my fuji 240 lens.
I am considering Portra NC color film as well as B & W. Since, I haven't used color negative film for years, I would appreciate your opinions of the Portra 160 vs the 400 characteristics and also what film speed to use. I suppose that I will just use my minolta III incident meter to determine the exposure, but don't know what film speed to set at?
Is there a good Fuji alternative?
