Melbourne cityscape long exposures on film

Last week I posted some shots of Melbourne’s skyline from one of my favourite spots up high as the sun was about to set… well, after the sun set I tried my hand at some long-exposure night photography – using film.

I had never used film to take long-exposures at night before, so I wasn’t sure what film to use.  I decided to go with Portra 800, as Portra has pretty much the finest grain you will get with film.

These were shot at 100 ISO rather than 800; admittedly this was accidental, but it turned out to be a happy accident.  Aperture was set to f22, and the shutter speed of the Pentax ME is automatic according to the light reading.

I’m looking forward to doing some more long exposure night photography experiments with film soon.
