Compendium – One

So I’ve decided to try something different…

Most weeks I shoot five or six rolls of film…then it sits on my desk for a bit.  Usually I’m lucky if I can remember what it is, and what I shot it at.  Throw in some digital here and there, and most days I’m not sure what I should post.  As a result, I’m going to try one or two “mass posts” per week instead…a compendium, if you will.  This one happens to be B&W.  They may be colour, monochrome, film, digital or all of the above…

I can’t tell you what I shot these with, but this is Rollei Retro 80S, developed in D76.

I hope you enjoy…



The Key on the Kite

…Otherwise known as “accidental scientific discovery”.


Did you know that Eastman 5222 could be pushed to ISO 800?

Well I didn’t…at least not until I shot and developed this roll.  Which I assumed was either Ilford HP5+, or Ilford Pan F+.  (Yes, one was ISO 400, and the other ISO 50).  Anyway, I was pretty sure it was HP5+, so I shot and developed it at ISO 800.  Using the Neopan 400 times.  Because I also had a roll of that in there.

(Listen don’t ask—My system sucks…I know that).

Suffice it to say, this is Eastman 5222 pushed to, and developed at ISO 800.  These photos have zero artistic merit, but I thought I’d put them up here for the public record.  They are developed in D76 1:1–if you want to do so, use the Fuji Neopan 400 @ ISO 800 times.

I hope that even makes sense.
