I do have a shot similar to the first one, unfortunately a little grainy (HP5+ again):

It works, was that taken in London? I like HP5+, but have not tried it in 120 format.

Yes, it's a sort of semi-desert sci-fi garden I don't remember exactly where but close to the Thames, outside the usual "circuit" of tourists I assume.

This is HP5+ 35 mm, I find it very grainy, I usually prefer Delta 400:

Or even XP2 that I consider a washed out film:



My favourite has always been BW400CN though:

Out there
Austrian Alps, July 2014
[Pentax ME, 50 mm, Agfa APX100 developed in Rodinal, 11 min, 18°]




So this week I started developing the rolls of film I shot during summer and autumn. Although I started shooting a while ago and developed quite a few rolls, it involved two "first times" for me. Because it is cheap and available at drugstores in Germany, I switched from shooting FP4+ to Agfa APX100. Quite recently Agfa changed something about their emulsions. However the information about the APX100 out there is quite confusing and it's never really clear if it's referring to the old or the new emulsion. So, I developed my first roll of APX100 and wasn't even sure if I got the time right.
In addition to that, I used Rodinal for the first time (I normally use D-76). My impression is, that you either hate or love Rodinal with its grainy images. So I wasn't really sure that even if I got the development time right that I would like the result. It was quite exciting.
But I am quite happy with the results. Sure, the grain is pronounced and the film looks more like TriX EI800 than an ISO 100 film, but it adds a certain feel to the images. Rodinal will not become my go-to developer but I will definitely use it again.
Cheers,
David

Second shot with my Graflex 4x5. This was at 1/5 and 5.6 on arista-edu from freestyle, developed in caffenol-C
135mm Optar.


The first shot was the same scene at 1/2 and 5.6. Both needed more exposure, and I lightened this one up in post, and added a bit of contrast. Not an exciting scene, but just a test of the camera, film and exposure and processing.

I think I might play with increasing development time on this 4x5 film also.

Another older post workflow updated. Getting passed during a sailboat race. Admittedly, this one time that wooden grip for the P6x7 came in handy.

I’ll say, you’re a brave man using the P67 on a moving sailboat, well done! I’d be afraid of getting the camera splashed!

Thanks. I think it looks harder to use in this environment than it actually is. But, yeah, I have had expensive repairs on two lenses before due to the environmental conditions. One where salt water swelled some internal seal and made it hard to turn for focus. And the other from my sand dune trips where sand got in the focus gearing and was grinding. I guess no pain no gain.

I really like this.

Here's one off of my first roll of Tri-X from my Pentax 645n. These were two of the soldiers at a Project Healing Waters fly fishing outing recently.


If I could take this shot again I'd over expose a little more to brighten their faces. I thought I metered off them better but I guess the bright background still tricked the meter (and me). That back lighting is still tricky for me.
