After seeing Patrick Joust’s great night time long exposure photography I thought I wanted to give it a try for real. He is probably the best night time long exposure film photographer out there today. He uses mostly medium format cameras and an assortment of film like Kodak Portra 160 and Kodak Ektar 100. He primarily shoots in his home town of Baltimore USA. I used my Mamiya RZ67 medium format camera and chose the same film as Patrick Kodak Ektar 100. The lab I use to develop the negatives really botched up some by either dirty machinery or lousy end user. They were covered in gray blotches and streaks. After researching the net I was 100% sure the lab was at fault and not me. This was my real first attempt at long exposure night film photography.
