I had this roll of Kodak Tmax P3200 sitting in my fridge for absolute ages. So long that I couldn’t remember quite when or why I bought it. It’s not like I have much opportunity for night photography. Eventually I loaded it in my dad’s old Chinon and lugged the brick of a camera with me to Lisbon back in January. My hotel was just around the corner from Oriente station, so it was easy to go for a walk there at night and not have to carry the heavy camera around for too long.
I shot the rest of the film in varying light conditions, including on the London Underground and at an evening reception for a wedding (fair enough results), as well as in broad daylight with sunny conditions (high grain and pretty low contrast as expected). I’m most pleased with the shots below. So much so, that I almost don’t want to share them. Very me of me. 🙂
I really enjoy collaborating with other creatives and making something together. It’s something I always want to do more of, whether it’s music and video, mixed media or photography-related.
Back in November 2021 or thereabouts, I shot a roll of Fomapan 100 in my janky Harrow camera, and then sent it off to my photography bud Norbi Whitney (forever on the move, but in Berlin at the time) so he could double expose it in his Holga. A nice little lofi film collaboration.
Previously he’d sent a roll of Ilford FP-something to me, which I had double-exposed over here in London. The results were a little lacklustre/hit-and-miss though, so while shooting the Fomapan roll, I tried to take some notes to help him compose his shots. Me being me, I lost track of which frame was which at some point, but generally-speaking I think the notes helped yield a higher number of satisfying shots, as evidenced in this really cool video he made of the results. I’m also including a few of the shots here. I really recommending giving him a follow. It took absolute ages to complete this collaboration, as he ended going on tour for a couple of months, and we only just completed it in the third quarter of 2022, but the results are totally satisfying, so worth it. 🙂
This was my first time trying Cinestill 50D; one of the pricier films out there. I was wondering how it would do in the mostly cloudy weather I was shooting it in, but it really impressed me. These were all shot in Yorkshire using my Konica C35. Not much more to say.
