Bologna + Bessa L + Pushed AGFA Vista 400

I definitely don’t love pushed AGFA Vista 400 for street photography, but I think that it deserves a second try for night photography.

Here’s some pics i took in Bologna with my Voigtlander Bessa L, shutter times between 1 and 1/14, film pushed to 800 ISO. As i have already noticed HERE this film pushed works better in higly contrasted scenes.

I’ve underexposed by 1/3 to gain more contrast but, considering that pushing film does increase the contrast per se, next time I might try to overexpose by 1/3 to achieve a softer shade between lighter and darker areas.
