The Project

It’s the sort of thing that begs for MF B&W film.

I didn’t get exactly the type of shots I envisioned…but I guess I’m happy with how these turned out.

Ilford HP5+ pushed to ISO 1600 in D76

The Twelve Frames of Christmas

(…Already??)

Yes.  Already.

We are one of those families.

(Hey, when you have kids, you decorate early…)

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

In any case, to the best of my knowledge, this sort of thing has never been attempted anywhere before…especially not without some sort of safety harness.

What you have here, folks, is all twelve frames from a roll of 120 yesterday.  No, I’m not sayin’ they’re all great…but some are quite postable.

And like the great Ansel Adams once said: “If you don’t take the shot…you won’t have the picture”.

Or something like that.

Anyhoo…here they are in exactly the same order they were shot and came off the roll.  (Actually, they came off the roll in reverse, because of how 120 spools…but this is how they were shot.  Trust me.)

Ilford HP5+ shot at ISO 800, and pushed one stop in D-76

You saw it here first.

Twintech

They’ve decided they are going to start a company and invent things…

First on the list: Rocket boots!

Three things going on here:

  • Portra 800 pushed to 1600
  • Rodinal Pre-flash
  • New chemical process: Rollei Digibase C-41. Four steps instead of three, with different timing and temperatures.  Separate Bleach and Fix (instead of “Blix”) Not sure I see a massive improvement, but time will tell.
