Colour Negative Film

In photography a negative is an image, usually on a strip or sheet of transparent plastic film, in which the lightest areas of the photographed subject appear darkest and the darkest areas appear lightest. This reversed order occurs because of the extremely light-sensitive chemicals a camera film must use to capture an image quickly enough for ordinary picture-taking, which are darkened, rather than bleached, by exposure to light and subsequent photographic processing.

Colour negative film is not normally used used for reproduction work as most organisations prefer transparancies. When choosing a film you need to pick the right film for the intended photo.

The positive uses of film are:- Better Dynamic range - In Black and White. Allows for minor focusing issues along with  minor exposure issues and film has a higher resolution than digital.

I went out on a Friday evening with and old Minolta AF25 point and shoot loaded with AGFA Vista Plus 200 and took the following photos.
