This is Roll #8 of my 52 Rolls in 52 Weeks Project
- Camera – Canon AE-1
- Lens – Canon FD 50/1.4 S.S.C.
- Film – Ultrafine 400 (bulk loaded)
- Exposure – 200 EI
- Developer – Kodak HC-110 (dilution B)
- Scanner – Epson Perfection V550
Sometimes one of the enjoyments of film photography is just going out and blasting through a roll, whether four exposures on a 6×17 rig or 36 on 135 format film. This roll sees me strolling to the fantabulous Looking Glass Photo on foot with my gorgeous Canon AE-1 and 50/1.4 lens, burning some probably poorly stored Ultrafine 400. Since I enjoy over exposing film and developing at box speed or a stop higher, that’s what I did here not knowing if the Ultrafine had degraded at all.
I find Ultrafine’s grain structure fairly nondescript, albeit certainly “fine” as in the name. It seems to be pretty low contrast as well, so I’m pretty happy with the boost in contrast I got by effectively pushing it a stop to 400 in development.
A few quick notes:
- Shot with Canon AE-1 (black and beautiful) with Canon FD 50/1.4 SSC lens
- Exposed at 200 EI
- Developed in Kodak HC-110 dilution B
- Scanned with Epson Perfection V550
