Kodak's bread and butter
As the title suggests, this is one of Kodak’s most successful films for consumers. It is fine grained and suitable for all uses from portraiture to landscapes. This film renders colors in a very pastel-like manner. So if soft colors are your thing, you will love Portra. I think this film has been shot to death in California featuring people with skateboards or people at the beach. But outside of those two situations, I would use Portra for photographing while hiking, vintage car shoots, or photographing friends in an outdoor environment. I do not recommend portra for indoor flash photography with a point and shoot camera because I have found that my pictures turn out more yellow than expected because of white balance issues. Overall this is an excellent film but it is getting 4/5 because it is expensive and currently extremely hard to find in stock.
How do I fix undeveloped film if I spilled foundation and leaked onto negatives? I am unsure if the foundation leaked into the roll itself, in the camera.
Definitively one of the most versatile and forgiving color films presently available
I mostly shoot this film in 120 rolls and almost always at half speed (ISO 200) and develop it at 400 with great results. Usually I expose for the shadows and this way it gives me the best shadow details preserving the highlights.
Love it for daylight and night photography. and in both situations is very forgiving.
It produces decent colors including skin tones.
