Slow, but colourful

After a week of anticipation, the latest batch of negatives from my pinhole camera returned today. I shot two films, so I’ll share them as two separate posts, starting with a roll of Kodak Portra 160. I love the colours of this film, but I’m discovering that they change when shooting long exposures. The blues become particularly vivid – rather unnaturally so when it comes to the sky. However, the saturated colours worked quite well for the 37 minute exposure of our Christmas tree!

The blur of cyclists whizzing past. I hadn't realised my own shadow would be part of the picture when I took this!
