Agfachrome 1,000

Agfa had stopped production of this film even a few years before they went into liquidation. I don’t think it sold well. It’s an E6 slide film with high ISO of 1,000. It is quite grainy and also has a fairly muted colour palette. I think of it as mostly brown. A lot of people seem to hate it, particularly those who had to use it for commercial purposes. I just like it as a film with unique pictorial qualities. I started by shooting a couple of rolls to see what it looked like & then I went looking for situations that would seem to work.
