Shooting Kodak Gold 200 on Jeju Island

Shot with the Nikon F70 + Nikkor 50mm 1.8 lens on Kodak Gold 200

I strongly believe that the best times for travel are April/May and August/September for the majority of destinations. I took my mom on a vacation last August to Montreal and Toronto and this past May we went to Korea.

I was debating between Europe or visiting Grandma, and my conscience wouldn’t let me wonder through the cobblestone streets of Prague knowing how much Grandma would want us to visit.

Dubbed the “Hawaii of Korea,” I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the sea was on Jeju island.

I was expecting to take a lot of photos on film but I ambitiously took with me 4 rolls of colour negatives with me on the 10-day trip. These were all shot on Kodak Gold 200. I had also brought Kodak UltraMax 400 with me on this trip. Honestly, I thought I would be shooting more digital than film but all the images I love were shot on film.

I think Kodak Gold is very underrated and this film might be one of my favourite looks. There’s hardly any grain and the colours are vibrant. Undoubtably, Gold makes everything look sunny and warm.

Kodak Gold 200 is sharp and versatile. It’s my go-to film stock and I had begged my boyfriend to get me stock when he went to the States for work.

If Ektar 100 is too costly then I would recommend the Gold. For vacation and everyday, I think the Gold is even the better option.


If you like some of the images here, I am selling prints at xoginnie.darkroom.tech.

Thank you for the support.
