Bad Surprises

A few shots from a dodgy batch of Portra I shot last week. I got through 3 rolls of 5 when I realised pretty much nothing was usable, and didn't want to use the rest of the box incase any good stuff was lost. I've been in touch with Kodak and they're sending me a replacement pack so we're all good. It hasn't put me off, the good surprises outweigh the bad surprises when it comes to shooting film.

The main problem with these was the huge blue vignette on the top and bottom of every shot. Realistically I probably could have saved a few shots by cropping it out but all the colours were washed out too and just wouldn't have felt right alongside my other stuff. I'm all about consistency and colour.
