Fomapan 100 shot at ISO 50

I’m still not shooting much film lately, meh, not even shooting with my digital camera, thanks to the lovely C***D19.

But that roll of Fomapan 100 was waiting in my fridge for nearly a year and one beautiful weekend I managed to take some pictures, but I set the speed to ISO 50 – after reading online that this is closer to its real sensitivity.

One more reason to do it was that I wanted to try our new developer – Kodak HC110 (we were using TMax before).

I must say I am very happy with the places I visited and the shots I took on this film. I was using my Canon EOS 5 (aka A2) and a 16-35mm Canon lens with polarizer.

I developed it with Kodak’s dilution B, which according to Massive Dev Chart gave me an 8 minute long developing with continuous agitation (I managed 🙂 ).

As soon as the film dried I scanned it and you can see the results below. This time I also give an example before and after editing, but it was just a little touch of contrast and in some cases highlights and shadows balancing.

The grain? Very fine!

I will be doing this combo again in the future, I’m glad I tested this and I’m very happy to share the results with you.

Enjoy!

Concrete, fog, nature and silence…

And a model, too!

We came back from São Miguel a few days ago and of course we miss being on holidays. But at the same time we are excited with all the photos we brought from there. One of the most interesting things we did was a photoshoot for my girlfriend @joanarainer

The idea was to go to an abandoned hotel early morning and hope for the thick fog. In São Miguel, however, fogs may come and go at any time, so we were not sure what to expect. Thankfully, the fog was merciful for us and we could realize our vision at the first attempt.

A colorful dress was nicely contrasting from the surrounding dark concrete and at times the fog was not allowing us to take a photo from further than a few meters. But we managed and the results can be seen below.

Enjoy! 🙂
