Week 49 — Pushing HP5 in the Fog ….

We have had quite a few foggy days here in Wales so I decided to shoot a roll of HP5 at 1600 with the hope of accentuating the fog with the extra grain and contrast of pushing the film. I was quite pleased with the results, I really do like the look of HP5 when…

Week 48 – 15 years Expired ….

As I have said in a previous post I have a lot of expired Slide film stored in my fridge with the intention to cross-process it from time to time. This roll of Fuji Sensia 400 expired back in 2002, I am not sure how most of the rolls were stored which is why I am cross processing…

Week 36 ….. Let’s push it …..

I have been shooting film like mad over the last couple of weeks especially since getting a C41 home kit. So between the 52 Rolls project, The FP4 Party and playing around with cross processing I have a backlog of stuff to post here and over on my other 2 blogs (see at bottom of…
