As Colour Turns to Black and White | Portra 800

When it’s clear here in the evening, there are just a few moments after the sun has gone down when the sky is about to turn from blue to black and the mountains are in between colour and black and white. Trees are an inky black and the mountains glow in a subtle and magical way despite the absence of sun; almost but not quite white, and it’s the moment where the last remnants of colour cling to daylight before night is upon us. I’ve been seeing this moment frequently and so the other night I stood on our driveway with my camera on a tripod, and I set about capturing this fleeting phase. This shot was captured in bulb mode, f/11, with an exposure of around 30 seconds…or indeed, 30 Mississippis, because I had no timer and my finger steadily on the shutter button given that I don’t have a remote shutter release for my camera. Camera: Pentax 67ii | Film stock: Kodak Portra 800 | Lab: Canadian Film Lab
