Combo #248 (Matthew Wylie)

By on June 19, 2014
Lens:  Akira 
Film:  US1776 
Flash: off


"This combo is a slightly lighter parallel to the John S/US1776 combo. The Akira lens provides some of those same (though less intense) overly saturated greenish smudges in the corners and works well in contrast with the naturally bright canvas that the US1776 film is going to provide. Not my favourite black and white combo, but it should be considered alongside the classic John S/US1776 and G2/US1776 combos. Out of all of these though, the Akira combo seems to work better on overcast days, so it’s a win-win in terms of working quite decently in a variety of natural lighting conditions. "
