Pushing Portra - Tim Sewell

Pushing colour film is a tricky business - often resulting in weird colour shifts and unacceptable grain. Overall, I'm not too unhappy with these results, however. This is Kodak Portra 400 35mm film pushed to ISO 1600. Development was extended to 3 minutes at 47.5C (all other steps were as normal) in a Digibase C41 kit about halfway through its lifespan. Given the mixed lighting conditions under which the pictures were shot through my Canon 1N it's a little hard to identify any colour irregularities, but the overall effect is reasonably appealing.
