I have a little backlog of film stuff to post what with the 52 Rolls project, the #FP4Party and both of my other blogs.
I have processed quite a few rolls in the last 3 weeks both colour & B&W and managed to edit a few and post individual images but this is the 1st complete edit so its up 1st.
I must admit that since joining the #FP4Party crowd that FP4 is really growing on me, I have not shot a lot of it before thinking that the 125 iso was not as versatile as my lovely HP5 but the images that I have managed to get after shooting the last 4 rolls have turned my head a little.
The look of FP4 is pretty nice and very easy to print in the darkroom.
I made a few test prints from the last roll and they came out great and even managed to get on the shortlist for this months contest up against some other excellent images.
So it was nice to load up the Mamiya C330 with some HP5 and see what I have been missing.
I shot this roll at box speed for a change as the light was pretty good and still got some lovely contrast in the images even shooting at quite wide apertures. Even after my recent affair with FP4 I still love HP5 it is such a versatile film and unless ilford decide to knock it on the head like some of the other so called film producers I will be shooting this for as long as I can hold a camera.
Thank you @ilfordphoto for providing me with this great film
Thanks for looking…..
