I picked up a Pentax Program A SLR off ebay last week for less than £10, I couldn’t resist a bargain even though I have an ME Super and MV1 the benefit of the Program A is slightly lost on me as I don’t have any Pentax A lenses but for £10 it was a no brainer.
I also had the opportunity to try out some of West Yorkshire Camera’s C-41 process 400 iso Black & White film which I processed myself at home.
I popped along to a local derelict factory with the hope of capturing some nice contrasty images and I was not disappointed with either camera or film.
All the images were shot using the Pentax 50mm f1.7 lens which gave me lovely detail even shooting at f4.
I don’t normally use C-41 B&W film but I must say this film gave me great results and at the bargain price they charge its definatly worth a try.
comments most welcome 🙂

I’ve been following your blog for quite a while and I always enjoy your detailed, contrasty, grainy film images. Your pictures are a treat for the eye. I used to develop my own pictures in the dark room years ago but no longer have access to the very handy dark room that I was the only to use on the floor below where I used to live. I often try to give my own digital images the “film look” and that is somewhat satisfying but not like a proper print… on proper paper. Lovely stuff, keep it up.
Thank you for your kind comments 🙂
Nice set :0)
