ON PUSHING FILM.
This was my first time shooting with Kodak Portra 400, a film that can offer great skintones, contrast and saturation, the problem is I was shooting as if it were Fuji 400H, and exposing the heck out of it. I think that's why I ended up with yellowish skintones. The other problem was the lighting conditions, I didn't think it would be strong enough and hoped it was a perfect candidate for trying my first attempt at pushing a the roll, one stop (+1). And that's were my friend, Yuri, I met at the YANFAMWAY workshop, helped me out, and gave me some seriously helpful advice:
Other than not properly metering, I'm not sure where I went wrong. I knew I was pushing it (pun intended) with the setting sun, and I'd love to hear your thoughts and if you have any advice, please share!
It's all good though, I still have a few more rolls left and I'll give it another try and let you know how it goes. I have hopes that I will end up loving Portra, one way or another!
How about you, what is your favorite film stock?
