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 ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

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!

Long time no film

Laziness got in my way from posting some stuff in here and I kinda neglected my website (also wanted to make some changes here and that’s another reason for no updates).

I recently developed 2 rolls of black and white film which are very much to my liking, so I present to you these – a roll of Fomapan 200 and expired Fujifilm Neopan SS 100 (shot at box speed).

Enjoy!

Into the analogue photography world

Didn’t publish anything in here for a while, but doesn’t mean I am idle – at least not in photography ๐Ÿ™‚ Using all this time spent at home I am shooting some more film. A roll of Portra and an expired Ektachrome 160T are waiting to be developed in a lab. But I finally developed a roll by myself. Well, almost by myself ๐Ÿ˜‰ For a start I took a roll of Fomapan 400 – it’s cheap and if something goes wrong > out to the bin. So I didn’t really focus on finding amazing frames for this roll. But it turned out to be a beginner’s first success. Below you can find a few examples and the rest of good in my opinion frames you can find in my Behance profile: https://www.behance.net/gallery/96444293/Fomapan-400

Special thanks to a very talented photographer, Joana Rainer, who helped me with all this!

While I am writing this, there’s a roll of Ilford HP+ hanging in the bathroom drying and waiting to be scanned ๐Ÿ™‚

Any feedback is welcome!
