This month’s entries were taken using my Canon AE1 Program and my YashicaMat 124G … both with ilford FP4 rated at 200 iso and developed in ilfotec HC.
Luckily we had a bit of snow during shoot week so it gave the images a bit of a theme for a change ….
Obviously the square images are with the Yashica ……I think I will probably keep shooting FP4 at 200 are it gives a little bit more versatility without really effecting the images grain/sharpness wise. I don’t have anymore FP4 in 120 format so I need to get some before the next party starts in January.
Anyway thanks for looking ….

Since September I have been a participant in the #FP4Party over on Twitter/Emulsive.org …. http://emulsive.org/articles/introducing-fp4party where we all shoot some Ilford FP4 over a week then edit and post during the next 2 weeks followed by a vote at the end of the month to pick a winning favourite.I have not really shot a lot of FP4 mainly thinking that it isn’t as versatile as my Favourite film HP5 but since this Party began I must say I am really loving the look I get with FP4 and also how easy it is to print in the darkroom too.I have posted a few of these over on twitter as entries to the challenge but I thought it would be good to post them all together here on my blog too.
I was lucky this month to actually get one image picked to enter the final vote which was great as the standard is pretty high and getting better every time as more and more people are joining upIt’s great to be part of this film community, I love seeing what others are shooting which helps me to improve my own photography.
Check out emulsive.org … @FP4Party on twitter for more detailsI am not sure what I will be doing for this month’s Party I may try pushing it or even do a bit of flash photography as an experiment, what ever I do it will be fun anyway 🙂
Even my son joined in last month … ps I am the scruffy one on the left 😉
