Halcyon Revisited in HP5+

A few weeks back I shared my results of shooting Ilford’s PANF while around Halcyon/Bluestar in downtown San Antonio. I also shot a roll of HP5+ I’ve had sitting waiting to be developed. I was waiting before developing it until I shot more rolls of HP5+ but accidentally ruined my …

Colorado Bend In Ektar

A few week ago we had our yearly camping trip with some close group of friends. It’s a tradition although in past years we would go to the Texas Renaissance Faire. It is fun but seems way too crowded and the quiet camping area there is devoid of trees. So …

Halcyon in 35mm PANF 50

Went to Halcyon (around Blue Star in downtown San Antonio) for a family brunch of sorts, after which we want for a nice stroll along the river. It was a sunny day and seemed like a perfect time to try out PANF. I tried it in both 35mm and 120. …

JCH StreetPan 400. Quite the Moody Film.

I’ve had this roll of JCH StreetPan 400 (35mm) sitting around for a while and finally got around to developing it. Part of the wait was wanting to try going back to ID-11 as my developer. HC-110 works great with HP5+ it would seem but I had mixed results with …

The Ranch in FP4+

A week or so ago I played around with FP4+ in 4×5 and I quite liked the results. Even so, it was only a few shots. Last Friday we went out to the ranch where I had a chance to finish the rest of my FP4+ 35mm test roll. With …

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 …
