Kodak Portra 400 Pushed to 1600

Last year I visited Chedder Gorge and Woolacombe in Devon. The weather was rainy & overcast….fantastic for diffusing light and creating soft shadows…an opportunity for me to push a roll of Portra to 1600. To follow steps on how to develop colour film check out my other post on Lomography Color Film

I’m very impressed with how this roll of Kodak Portra held up. I was expecting the shadows to be muddier but the contrasts and colours are looking great. The photos in Chedder Gorge on a rainy day work better than on a sunnier day in Woolacombe. On brighter days the contrast looses detail in the shadows.
