I spent a couple hours today testing out some Illford Plus HP5 120 film and FP 100c in Bay City. Although I burned through a couple shots by forgetting to remove the darkslide, I’m extremely happy with these results! We weren’t able to get a ton of shots simply because we started during the golden hour and, very shortly after starting, there just wasn’t enough light left to work with.
I went through 6 or 7 sheets of FP 100c and one roll of Illford, which leaves plenty left for the larger trips I’ve got planned before winter break ends. I’m very bummed at the cost and time consuming nature of all this film stuff. I’m considering holding off sending in the roll of Illford because I should be able to develop it next semester at SVSU. That means, though, that I could be creating photos with missed exposures. Most likely I’ll wait to develop the film myself to save money and hope the photos turn out!
