Experimentations With FP4+ and Delta 100 in 4×5

One of the neat things I have been excited about with shooting sheet film is the fact that I can very easily test different films under similar conditions (same camera, same lens, exposures taken minutes apart, developing the films at roughly the same time). I’ve been slowly doing this in …

Making prints from Pancro 400

I mentioned in my last post that I ended up getting a ton of grain from Pancro 400. After looking at it more, I think it was partly due to development and partly due to the beach. While I still want to test it again and developing it in ID-11 …

Photos from the Beach

Forgot to put these up sooner, whoops. Shot using a combination of Ektar 100, Delta 100 and Pancro 400. The Pancro turned out awfully grainy with thin negatives. In fact not even sure I put up any photos here with it. I think I did something wrong there so I …

Stand Development Using HC-110 and HP5+ on 4×5

I had originally just planned to shoot the inside of my computer in 4×5 just to see how it compares to other shots I have done in 35mm. I took two exposures, one normal and one with a red filter. Since I use blue watercooling liquid, I figured it would …

First shots on 4×5. I’m absolutely blown away.

These aren’t perfect by any means. I took two shots of Camden and in the one that he was properly framed in he closed his eyes, and in this one he swung a bit far forward on the swing which made his arms an odd framing. And likewise the birdhouse …

Hiking Horsethief Springs In Ektar 100

Actually we didn’t quite make it to the springs. Instead we ended up camping on a rather nice vista with a nice and flat space to camp. This was my first ever real backpacking trip and I opted to pack light (good thing) and just brought my Nikon N80 35mm …

Random Photos & Hiking with Delta 100 (35mm)

It took me a while to run through this roll and as a result half of it is random photos while the other half is from my first real hiking trip up to House Thief Springs. This was in 35mm though I was originally hoping I would have had my …

First experiences with Ektar 100 in medium format

Lately I have been shooting mostly black and white. I’ve always loved black and white photography. It’s great for practice, can have a nice abstract feel, has just a ton of film and developing options to really influence the look, and I can develop it myself. In truth developing color …

It took me a while to come around to HP5+, but…

Back when I shot film in high school I recall liking T-Max 100. In my current foray back into film, I have found myself preferring Ilford Delta 100, which is very similar. Part of it is indeed the T-Grain emulsion but it may also be I haven’t really looked much …
