My favorite film is ilford HP5 but I am not adverse to shooting any film really and I have a varied collection stored in my film fridge.
This is the 3rd roll of Fomapan 100 that I have shot and I am still not sure what I make of it.
I think from my experience that portraits are most probably the best for this film as it gives a lovely glow that looks great on people but tends to soften landscapes.It definitely has a very original look and does bring something different to a landscape I may get one of these printed large and see what I think.
All the images were shot using the Olympus OM2s with the Zuiko 35mm f2.8 and processed in ilfotec HC 1+22 dilution for 7 minutes.
Thanks for looking
I have a film only blog over at usingfilm if you want to take a peek ……
My favorite film is ilford HP5, I also shoot Delta 400 and T-Max 400 but after reading quite a few posts on the internet and recommendations from some fellow Twitter photographers I bought 5 rolls of 35mm Fomapan 100.
I shot it at box speed and processed it in Ilfotec HC at 1+9 dilution and the results were very pleasing.
The images shot in bright sunshine where lovely and contrasty with plenty of detail in both Shadow and Highlights while the one’s shot in low natural light almost glowed while still holding detail.I am extremely pleased with this film and after reading more on the web I will be getting some Rodinol next as this seems to give even better results.
