Nov. 20, And 7 More Frames of Turquoise;

These are from the same roll as the Apocalyptic Reno post, but I didn’t think they really fit in with that grouping of shots. Taken with my Leica Ic and Voigtlander 15mm, developed by The Darkroom in San Clemente.

Another shot of Bangkok Thai, an always photogenic building.

  1. Awesome you like better than purple??

    Can you recommend a fine grain b&w
    Film. I hand fomopan 400 and a little too grainy.

    Thank you

    1. Thanks Fred! I think I do prefer the turquoise to the purple. I do like the purple just fine, but I really love the orange skies that I get from the turquoise.

      Yes, I have a number of recommendations for black and white film, but most of them are slow and slower, which may or may not work for you:

      Film Washi S at ISO 50 is one of my all time favorite black and white films, almost grainless to my eyes.

      Adox CMS II can be shot at anywhere from ISO 6-25 depending on how much contrast you’re looking for, the higher speeds having more contrast.

      Agfa Copex Rapid is another really great ISO 50 film that won’t break the bank

      Rollei RPX 25 is a wonderful high contrast film with almost no grain. I’ve been meaning to try both RPX 100 and 400, but haven’t had the chance yet.

      Rollei Retro 400s is a beautiful film, but may have too prominent a grain for you.

      Ilford Pan F+ is a really nice all around not too high contrast ISO 50 film.

      I’m about to test some Rollei Retro 80s as I haven’t used it in quite a while, but I remember thinking it had a great deal of potential. To my knowledge all the Rollei films are actually Agfa films which I seem to have a penchant for, but I lean towards the high contrast end of things.

      I’m about to test some Ilford Delta 100 (similar to T-max I think) I’ve seen others get great results with it, which may or may not mean much.

      In general, the faster the film speed the more prominent the grain.

      I hope this helps at all?

  3. These are stunning! I think you picked really appropriate scenes for the film.

    1. Thanks so much Katie! I usually shoot black and white, so I’m used to looking for form, light and value changes. It’s so different for me to be focused on color, but a good change of pace I think.
