Black and White Film Photography – August

August 28th, 2011 by

Camera: Pentax Asahi
Film: 35mm Ilford HP5 Plus 400

Had the pleasure of being given some expired rolls of Ilford Film from a friend. Everything turned out, any errors were on my part (slow shutter causing the double exposures). If you’re in an experimental mode of shooting, I definitely recommend using expired film. It’s not quality you’re after at the moment, you could just want to be testing out a new vintage camera that you’ve just bought, experimenting with light or manual techniques you’ve read about. Sometimes it’s the flaws of film that make an image just that little bit more… special.

These images were shot this month and part of July. Mix of a friends birthday and Sydney CBD.
