Old Poppies & Old Portra

My last roll of old Portra and the last of this years poppies.

Shot as the light fades and without a tripod my exposure options were limited… so wide open aperture and the slowest speed I can cradle my Bronica SQA with reliably. I wanted the foreground Poppy to be in focus but as the summer breeze blows it in and out of the limited depth of field it’s all down to luck… and mine was out!

Oh well!

Camera: Bronica SQA
Lens: 80mm
Film: Portra NC 160
