A Cold Day in Tobermory

Earlier this year I spent a couple of days in Tobermory, Ontario. The first day was unseasonable cold, with rain, mist and fog. It made for some great atmosphere in the harbour though! I took both images with my Rolleiflex 3.5E3, using Ilford HP5+ film, pushed one stop to EI 800.

First time shooting the new Ilford Ortho Plus film

Recently (on my birthday on November 16th to be precise) I tried my first roll of the new Ilford Ortho Plus 80 film. It is nice to see a new film come onto the market! I shot it using my Rolleiflex 3.5E3, and I developed the film using Rodinal 1+100, using the stand develop process. I like the look of this film!

Available Light

I am trying out Ilford Delta 3200 Professional film, one of the fastest black and white films you can get. When I was researching online on what developer to use, I was amazed at the variety of opinions, and just how tricky it is to get this film “dialled in” in terms of exposure and processing. My first try was using D-76 developer at a 1:1 dilution, which was not completely successful in terms of graininess. When shooting available light (or available darkness!) subjects though this is the kind of film stock I will need to master, so I have one more roll, and I will try another developer next time. The fun is in the discovery though!
