365 Days of Film Photography – An Analogue Giveaway.

Today marks the first anniversary of blogging every single day for the past year on Curating Cuteness! I’ve put together a small analogue giveaway to give thanks to you lovely people who keep reading, leaving comments, asking questions and sharing experiences.

This is going to be a simple affair of you telling me which is your current favorite film stock and which one you’re hoping to try next. I’ll go first: my all-time favorite is Fujicolor 100 (it is the same as the re-labeled Superia 100 which you will have the chance of winning!) and I just bought a roll of Ilford Pan 100 that I can’t wait to try.

Up for grabs are three analogue prizes:

– one set of The Expired Film Combo
– one set of Lomography films (Lady Grey B&W 400, CN 400 and CN 100)
– one Fujicolor QuickSnap Superia disposable camera

For extra entries, please feel free to share this giveaway on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook, remember to come back and leave one comment for each extra entry to let me know. I’ll be drawing three winners from a virtual hat at the end of this week – and will ship to anywhere in the world – good luck!

  1. I love Lomography 400, but I rarely use it nowadays. And something I definitely want to try is Fujicolor Pro 400H.

    1. I still have a few rolls of Lomography 400 left but now that the piggies discount at Lomography is not as cost-effective anymore I doubt I will get them in the near future. Fujicolor Pro 400H looks like a great film but definitely not in my budget, haha! Thanks for joining the giveaway ♥

  2. Wow congratulations! That is a huge achievement!! To be honest I don’t really have much experience in film photography! I have a holga and an old nikon, but haven’t played around with them too much. I guess, if I were to pick from your 35 mm film guide, I would love to try Agfa Vista Plus 200. I think only one I’ve ever used is the Fujifilm 100.

    1. Thank you, Liz! I feel all at once humbled that time passed so quickly and determined to keep on blogging daily! If you win, I hope you share with us more of your film photograph!

  3. Very cool! I used to shoot only fuji superia when i lived in Peru because that’s all they sold at the place i developed. My favorite film is TMAX 400 and i’m hoping to try some new color films next, maybe portra 400.

    1. Fuji Superia is very reliable, I wouldn’t mind on having that film to shoot with! Portra 400 is really great for portraits (duh!) and also incredibly expensive for my budget so I only save it for special occasions! Thanks for joining the giveaway ♥

  4. Hi Katie!
    Happy anniversary and congratulations! It seriously takes a lot of effort to blog every single day. I want to thank you for having this blog because it has become a huge inspiration for me. You also helped me decide to buy a yashica electro 35 gsn which is probably my favorite film camera right now.

    I’m a beginner so I’ve only tried Fuji superia 400. I’m really loving it so far because its so forgivable if I mess up with the exposure. I can’t wait to try my rolls of Agfa Vista Plus 200!

    1. Hello Gloria! Thank you so much, it just makes my day to know that sharing something I absolutely love to do has helped so many others fall in love with it too! Please share your film photography with us when you are ready! :) :) :)

  5. Big congratulations Katie!!

    My favourite film so far is Lomography Lady Grey

    I can’t wait to shoot my first roll of Kodak Portra 400 [it’s almost unbelievable that I have never shot this film hehe]

    1. Thank you! :D No, I cannot believe you haven’t used Portra 400, I think you’re really going to enjoy it. Portra 160 is pretty good too!

    1. Thanks for joining the giveaway, Asia! I haven’t used many black and white film but Kodak Tri-X sounds like one to try!

  6. My favourite go-to film is Superia (both 100 and 200) because of its bright colours and flexibility. The one I’m hoping to try next is the Lomochrome Purple (already bought two, yay!!). Now that sunny days have arrived I’m really looking forward to shoot some crazy coloured photos ^^

    1. I wish I could bite the bullet and buy some Lomochrome Purple! It’s just sooo crazy expensive but I definitely look forward to seeing your photographs using it! Thanks for joining the giveaway ♥

  7. i just discovered your blog, you’ve some amazing pictures here! i like to shoot film but i’m so poor and the local photography laboratories have such a poor variety that i always use to cheapest one, kodak 200. i would love any of these prizes so i could experiment with other kind of films!

  8. Katie, what a huge accomplishment! I so admire your consistency with posting…it’s also nice as a reader to have new posts to read every day. My favorite film is Fuji Superia 400 only because it’s what I’m most familiar with but I’d love to shoot Portra 400 someday. I love the colors but it’s a bit cost prohibitive at the moment! I haven’t shot film in a long time and any of your prizes would be such a fun way to kick off the summer.

    1. Thank you so much, Julie! I decided to post everyday because I have such a huge backlog of photographs but you know what, I think the constant blogging has inspired me to take even more photographs and now my backlog is larger than ever!

      My fingers are crossed for you and thank you for joining the giveaway! :)

  9. SOLARIS 200. But you already know :)
    And I’m hoping to try the fujichrome sensia 100 that gave such awesome pink results on your blog!

  10. wow… 365 posts… that’s amazing! Congrats Katie!
    my favorite film is lucky 200 but sadly it is no more available. I even like fuji 400. next I want to try some b/w film.

    1. Thank you dear Pratiksha! I need to try out more black and white film myself. Thank you for joining the giveaway ♥

  11. Impressive film photo blog and determination to blog everyday!
    I enjoy your photos very much, please keep it going! :)
    my current favourite film is Fuji Superia Premium 400, seems it just deliver great colours to my taste!
    what I want to try is some Kodak “cine film” like the Kodak Vision3 200T/500T!

    1. Hello Dominic! Thank you for your kind words, I sure hope there will be a second anniversary! :)

      I’m hoping to try some cine film myself, just need to make a budget for it! :D

  12. Hello!
    You are my favorite film photography blog. I enjoy looking through your pictures. My favorite film is the Kodak Ektar 100. I just love the color that it gives. The film that I am dying to have is the Lomography Lady Grey B&W 400. I cannot wait to get my hands on one of them. I saw the pictures that you posted in your blog using the Lomography Lady Grey B&W 400 and I instantly fell in love with it. Happy Anniversary and Congratulation Curating Cuteness and Katie! Keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you so much, Elikah! Maybe you’d like to share your film photography with us via Flickr or a blog? I love Ektar too, I think it’s one of those films that you cannot go wrong with. :) Thanks for joining the giveaway ♥

      1. I’d love to share my pictures, but unfortunately I don’t have a flickr account. But since you mentioned it I think I’ll make one :D I do have a 500px account but its primarily for my pictures taken from a DSLR camera.

        P. S.
        Search for *EBPhotography* in the 500px website. I hope you like what you see :D

  13. Oh how fun, and how awesome you’ve been blogging every day for a year – need a round of applause for sure! I think my favourite film is a tie between ektar 100 and portra 160 (for different reasons – ektar for landscapes, portra for skin tones). I have some slide film, I haven’t loaded in my camera yet but am super looking forward too :)

    1. I completely agree with you, Fiona! Ektar is great for landscapes and portra (both 160 and 400) is perfect for skin tones. Hope to see you share photographs taken with slide film soon! I need some encouragement to use them again, haha! Thank you so much for your kind words and for joining the giveaway! ♥

  14. First of all, happy anniversary, Katie! Thank you very much for every day inspiration you’re giving us!

    Frankly speaking I can’t say that I’ve got my favorite film stock…I’d better say that I’ve got favorite combinations of ‘camera + film’ because each film shows different results with different cameras.
    So I prefer LC-A + Fomapan 200/400 (the images turn out very vintage and dreamy) and Chinon Bellami + Kodak TRI-X 400 (for super sharp images).

    And at the moment I plan to try the infrared Ilford film with my Pentax K-1000 and to push Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 to 400 with Chinon Bellami.

    1. Thank you so much, Svetlana!! ♥♥♥

      You make a great point, my favorite Fujicolor 100 doesn’t work so well with plastic cameras so yes, I only love it when used with an SLR! I was recently tempted to buy some Fomapan (but got the Ilford instead) – might try it with my LC-A+! Thanks for joining the giveaway! :)

      1. Dear Katie,

        Thanks for your reply!
        So we’re waiting for your LC-A+ & Fomapan photos:))
        If you’re not succeed in buying Fomapan I can send you a couple of rolls as a gift.

        P.S. I’ve just received an e-mail with the info that I requested to unsubscribe from your blog.
        If you receive such request, please just ignore it. I think that it’s my smartphone playing his own games and actions LOL

        1. Thank you for your offer, Svetlana, but I do know a local shop that sells Fomapan, so I am definitely going to buy it soon! :)

  15. So awesome that you posted for 365 days, do you know how many films you used in total to get to that? I’d love to know :)

    Hmm, current favorite film stock is Kodak Ektar 100 – it just has such a pretty tone to it. We’re going to Portugal in a couple of weeks and I can’t wait to see what results I get with it.

    Oh next I want to try the Fuji Velvia 50, I have a couple of rolls that I’ve bee waiting to use in the sunshine and I think again, Portugal is going to be the perfect place for that.

    Congrats again, you’ve been a huge inspiration to me whilst I’ve been struggling to blog and to even take photos, I’m so glad that you’ve shared as many photos and posts as you have x

    1. I have SUCH a huge backlog of photographs I’m really not sure how many rolls I took to be able to post daily for the last year! Recently I did make a count after I was done organizing my negatives and so far I’ve taken 211 rolls of film since I started taking photographs… :) I wonder how many rolls you have?!

      Oh my gosh, Portugal! You’re going to come back with so many pretty pictures! And yes, I agree, it will be a great chance for you to use the Velvia 50! Thank you for joining the giveaway, Rhianne, you are one of the very first film photography bloggers I found and followed – definitely played a part in how my own blog has grown and evolved! :)

  16. This is the coolest giveaway ever! I just moved to Europe to be a student again so I have hardly any money for film and it’s making me sad…my favourite film is lady grey b&w, and I found a bunch of film I want to try on the LOMO online store but I blocked the names from my mind because I can’t afford them. Bahahahaha. EXCITEDDDDDDDD
    BAS XXXXX

    1. Hahaha, the Lomography shop is always trying to take my money! Thank you for joining the giveaway, Bas, my fingers are crossed for you!! ♥

  17. Really exciting giveaway Katie, I found a way to your blog and your blog has become my favourite ever since. I also try several films and my favourite is kodak ultramax 400. Recently, I’ve just loaded a self made redscale Kodak Color plus 200 to my Zenit E, and really excited to see the result. I love the blue tones from the photos you shot with Lomography Redscale XR very much, so maybe the film I want to try next is Lomography Redscale XR and I’ll try to blog more! Once again, congratulation to your blog’s aniversary! :)

    1. Thank you so much, amiam, I am truly glad and honored that you’ve found this blog helpful and fun! :)

      Kodak UltraMax 400 used to be my go-to film until I got my hands on a lot of Lomography CN 400 for a good discount – they are quite similar, I think! Once I run out of CN 400 I’m sure I will be using UltraMax 400 again. The Redscale XR is one of my favorites, ever! So stoked that it’s back in stock.

      Thanks for joining the giveaway! :)

  18. Wow that is impressive! I always enjoy your posts and photos. Your inspiring me to try new film. I love and always opt for the Afgaphoto 200 as it’s so readily available to me and so cheap but I really want to try lomochrome Purple. Looks so exciting :)
    xx

    1. If I could be on a shopping spree, the Lomochrome Purple will definitely go inside my cart. No budget for it now, unfortunately! Thank you for visiting the blog and joining the giveaway, Vicki! :)

  19. Congratulations on posting every day for the past year. It’s quite a feat!

    My current favorite is Kodak Ektar 100. I just love how saturated the colors are. A film I would love to try is any slide film cross-processed. I will probably end up starting with one of the lomography x-pro films.

    1. Thanks, Frances! The year passed so much quicker than I could have expected! The Lomography x-pro films are good starters, I really wish they still sold X-Pro Chrome though! Thank you for joining! :)

    1. When I look at your photographs I always try to imagine what film you had inside your camera. :) Thank you for joining the giveaway, dear Sara ♥

  20. Wow, Katie! Thank you so much for hosting the giveaway! This is fantastic! I can’t believe you’ve already been a daily blogger for a year! Congratulations! That can be hard work sometimes, and it definitely takes time and energy. Way to go! I can’t wait to see more of what you do in the future. For now, though, my favorite film is Kodak Portra 160. It never disappoints. I’d like to try some Lomography redscale, though, now that it is back in stock!

    1. Thank you so much, Dawn! Well, the truth is I always knew I had to blog in advance, sitting down everyday to churn out a post really wouldn’t have worked! I sometimes schedule as many as one month’s worth of posts when I’m on a roll and it’s much easier to post daily that way. :)

      I’ve only used Portra 160 twice now but I love that it’s mellower and much more forgiving than its 400 counterpart. And yes, go buy yourself some Redscale XR! I need to go to the Taipei Lomography store soon. :) Thanks for joining the giveaway! ♥

  21. My favourite film is portra 400, it is really expensive but usually worth it. I did just get a load of super 200 really cheap though so I’m looking forward to using that!

    Also, everyday for a year? You’re amazing!

    1. It is definitely worth it, which is why I only save the budget for Portra 400 for really, really special occasions! :D

      I’m completely into using expired film right now, they are so fun to discover and buy on the Internet because they are so cheap, haha!

      Thank you, clio, I don’t think I’ve ever told you this but you were one of the very first film photography blogs I found and love. :)

    1. I’ve heard they are the same thing! But I will need to cross process Elitechrome to see that for myself :) Is X-Pro Chrome 100 still available where you are? It’s a shame that we can no longer get it here in Taiwan. Thanks for joining the giveaway! :)

      1. Oh shucks i did not know that, I have not tried looking for it yet because i wanted to finish up my remaining films before getting new ones. Hope they have it in Singapore though ! Thank you for having the giveaway!!

        Btw i just want to say that i really love all your shots in Singapore. There are so many places that i’ve learned from your blog which i didnt know exist and i live here! LOL

        1. Haha, I always tell myself to finish using the films I have on hand first before buying new ones but that has NEVER happened! :)

          I still have tons of photographs taken in Singapore, so I’m glad to hear you enjoy them! If you don’t mind, do share your own film photographs of Singapore with us!

  22. What a terrific giveaway!

    My favorite is (the sadly discontinued) Kodak Ektachrome 100 (G or Plus), and I’m eager to try some Fomapan!

    Keep up the lovely work.

    1. I’ve been tempted to try some Fomapan too! Thank you for your kind words and for joining the giveaway, Katrinka. :)

  23. I found your websites a few months ago, when i was trying to find information on the Superheadz Golden Half. I kept following it because it share not one but to two interesting topics: film photography and Taiwan. Your pictures has a wonderful softness, i love the colors. And the film overview is great!

    My favorite film is Ilford HP5 plus. The film i want to try is Cinestill xpro. This is a true ‘movie’film adjusted for photography.

    1. Hello Dennis! I just checked out your Flickr and you have some great photographs of Taiwan! :)

      I’ve always wanted to try cinema film and was pretty tempted when the Lomography online store stocked it. Just did a quick search and there are actually quite a few people selling it and great to see that it does not cost an arm and a leg! :)

  24. Each day? Congratulations!! that’s al lot of work, I’m proud that you managed to do it (and jealous, I feel so random reading this, ahahah)!

    1. :) :) :) Thank you so much, Tanit! I just use one big chunk of time every other week to schedule posts in advance – not going to lie, sometimes I just feel so lazy but I really wanted to celebrate this daily blogging thing! ♥♥♥

  25. Wow, Katie!

    lately i hardly find time for blogging… but i’d like to tell you about my favourite film. its kodak ektar. i just love the tones its coming with. and, i never tried any of the lomography films… i should soon, i guess.

    loving your photographs, sending many many greetings :)

    1. :) :) :) Thank you Anne! Well, I work from home, so technically I do have a bit more time..

      Yes, Ektar 100 is a wonderful film, I don’t think you can find any fault with it! :) Thank you for joining the giveaway, Anne ♥

  26. hey, congrats!

    the film i use the most is fuji superia 400 and i would seriously love to get my hands on some portra but…so…expensive…

    1. Yes, so…expensive…:) I honestly cannot justify using Portra to take photographs of my food.

      Thank you for joining the giveaway, shirly! :)

  27. Happy 1st Anniversary on your 365 days of film photography! Your blog has inspired me a lot to continue shooting film. Like, just keep shooting, anything and everything! I even tried posting everyday, but couldn’t keep up. I will try harder! Haha! I’ve love your blog ever since I found it! I really am glad I did stumble upon your humble abode. Keep posting, keep shooting, and keep inspiring others to shoot film! Film is not dead! Congratulations also!

    1. I forgot what tell you the next film I’d love to try. Probably that Lady Grey B&W since I’ve already started developing my own B&W films. Also, some Solaris. I’ve been looking for it and I can’t seem to find anything from where I live.

      1. OMG, I’m so jealous that you are developing your own b&w! I inquired about darkroom classes but they are so out of my current budget! Thank you so much for your constant kindness and love for this blog, Aia! ♥♥♥

        1. I’m sure you can learn by yourself. It is surprisingly easy.:) Also, it is way cheaper to process your own compared to having it process in photolabs. I don’t get why here in our country, BW processing is more costly than color negs.

  28. Since the only film available in my location is Solid Gold 200, I had no choice but to love them. Thanks to my Aimex SP600, I was accustomed to this film and started appreciating each shots. I really wanted to try films above iso 200. I hope to try one of those Konica Centuria Super 400. :)

  29. I am so happy for you Katie! Hope you will have more amazing sets of 365 days of film and happiness ahead of you :)

    Agfa Vista 400 would have to be my favorite because of the magnificent tone it brings out especially when shot with a good source of light. On the other hand, I have never come across a seller of it here in the Philippines but I have always wanted to shoot with a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus :)

    Anyway, congratulations Katie! And thank you for inspiring many with your film photography :)

    1. Thank you so much, April!! I do look forward to more 365 days to celebrate!

      I have recently got back into Agfa Vista 400, I used to think it was too bright? Until I used it with my Pentax K1000 and the tones totally mellowed into the perfect tones. :) Ilford is very readily available online, I think you should definitely give it a try! Thanks for joining the giveaway ♥

  30. Congratulations Katie! ;) This is a cool giveaway! =) I still got rolls of films to develop using films I tried for the first time and until I’m done with them, I have to say my current favorite film is the Fujicolor c200. :) And the film that I really looooove to try is the Ferrania Solaris.

  31. Congrats on the anniversary, Katie! I love your dedication to film and analog cameras and your resulting photos. It’s refreshing to see, and inspires me to continue shooting in film, too :) I haven’t shot with it in awhile, but I absolutely loved shooting with the vibrantly saturated Fujifilm Velvia 100. And I would love to try shooting with any Lomography film, as I surprisingly still haven’t tried it yet!

    1. Thank you so much, Sue! :D

      I have never had the determination to “invest” in the Velvia films but really hope to try them soon! Thanks for joining the giveaway!
