Pulled Portra 400 | Coquihalla River Walk

It’s funny the things you sometimes don’t do even when they’re on your doorstep. If we walk down our driveway, turn right and then right again, there is a short walk to the end of a dead end road where it then becomes forest with the Coquihalla River immediately behind. Its literally no more than 5 minutes from our front door. For some reason, we have never walked all the way down the street and through the trees despite knowing that there is a trail. Today, though, wanting a walk close-by because I was wanting to spend time in the afternoon clearing up the garden (considering it has been under too much snow until recently) we ventured down the street and walked the trail. To our surprise we found it cut through the pine forest and then followed the river, eventually bringing us round in a circuit back close to home; it’s definitely going to be a location we walk to more often. I took along my Pentax 67ii and a couple of rolls of Portra 400, and as I usually do when shooting this film stock, I exposed for the shadows and pulled it one stop during development. I find it really works well particularly for contrasty scenes and allows great detail in the shadows and highlights.
