A Bright Winter’s Day

I was out recently with my Nikon F5; the morning had started off rather dark and dull, and I had high speed film (Cinestill 800T) loaded. Then things got rather bright and sunny. I saw this scene and in order to get the shallow depth of field I wanted I had to use a shutter speed of 1/8000 of second!

Cinestill 800T

Thanks to my friends at Downtown Camera in Toronto, I was able to get a test roll of Cinestill 800T film in medium format to try out. This is motion picture stock. This film has the remjet backing removed, making it safe to process in standard C-41 kits. It’ a high speed (ISO 800) film, but I shot it at EI 640. Despite the fact that it is Tungsten balanced (for incandescent lighting) I found my outdoor sunny day images on the test roll were very easy to colour correct in post.
