[Eben] Roll 13 – ACROS Portraits

This was a quick roll of portraits I made of family and friends with my Yashica-MAT LM. I think this was my second roll of Fujifilm Neopan ACROS 100, stand developed in Rodinal 1:100.





The more I use the Rodinal stand development method, the less I want to go back to D-76. Not only do I like the contrast and tone in the images, but I also like how simple it is is to just leave the film soaking for an hour, instead of worrying about precise timing and agitations.


The Yashica, which was a gift from a friend to replace the Yashica-MAT 124g I foolishly sold during my all digital years, has been pretty mechanically reliable up to now. This time I ended up with a double expose on the last shot. I can’t quite figure out how it happened, and I haven’t been able to replicate the situation.

Film: Fujifilm Neopan ACROS 100

Camera: Yashica-MAT LM

Developer: Agfa Rodinal 1:100

  1. Totally agree about stand developing. Especially good because I rarely shoot two rolls of the same thing, and developing everything separately is a massive pain. Some of these turned out quite nicely. Portraits are a thing I am terrible at.


  2. Great portraits! It’s easy to forget how beautiful Acros in bright sunlight can be when most black and white photography is of the dark and dismal “street” photography kind. Bravo to you for using Fujifilm and a Yashica!
