Photo of the Week – June 26th 2014

One of the most enjoyable things about shooting analogue is the very different characteristics that each film (or even roll of film) has. You cannot settle for one film before you’ve tried ’em all.

Basel, 2014.
Leica M6, shot on Ilford XP2 Super.
Notes on XP2 Super:
Developed using C41 (which is a colour developing process)
Grain is prominent in the dark areas (rather than the light parts in conventional B&W)
Highly flexible to light changes, delivering in over/-underexposure of 2 stops or more, albeit with more grain when underexposed.
Works as backup film, i guess. Or in France, because you can hardly find a film lab that will develop true B&W film in French cities. Or who knows, maybe they all cook in their basement.
