Another Fine Grain Film

In yesterday’s post I featured images created using long discontinued Kodak Technical Pan. Thankfully, there is a worthy successor still being made today: Rollei ATP 1.1. This is another slow speed film with extremely fine grain and sharpness, but also requiring special handling in development. This first roll was developed using Rollei RLC Low contrast developer, which does a great job, but is not cheap. I have more of this film coming, and I will test one roll using Rodinal, a much less expensive developer, to see if I can get comparable results.

Lazarus Film #2

The bag that had the roll of Panatomic X also contained a roll of Kodak Technical Pan dating from the 1970’s, so of course decades past expiry. This is a slow speed film so I was reasonably hopeful that it would be usable, and I was not disappointed.  Kodak Technical Pan, long discontinued, was a super sharp high resolution film requiring special development to manage contrast, and I love its look! These three images were shot in the ravine in the Beaches.

Didn’t Wait

When out last Saturday in the ravine near the Beaches I was waiting to take a photograph of the fence line, waiting for the boy to get out of frame as he walked by, but it looked interesting with him in frame, so I snapped the shutter.
