The Joy of Colour

Leica M6; Fujifilm 400 pushed to 800.

I didn’t think it would happen.

For three years I have been almost exclusively shooting in black and white. I have enjoyed how it has accentuated the composition and geometry that I have studied over since my art degree days.

However due to an accident in mixing film and shooting a roll of Fujifilm Superia 400 expecting it to be a roll of Kodak TriX, I pushed it one stop and found to my surprise the colour palette that I immediately fell in love with.

From that point I have progressively been shooting more and more colour using Fujifilm Superia 400 pushed one stop and discovering more surprises to how this film responds in a variety of lighting situations. All of which has been an exciting and satisfying journey in my ’art’.
