Ilford FP5 400 scans

27 Feb

I was recently loaned the use of a canon AE-1 manual focus film slr. This is an insanely awesome little camera, if there were no such thing as digital and autofocus, it would be my primary camera. Seeing as there is such thing as digital and autofocus, the AE-1 is a bit of a novelty, but it’s also an opportunity to think really hard about photography. Shooting film means that you need to be fully committed to the shot before you press that shutter and I see that as an opportunity to learn even more and push myself as a photographer.
So I set out to load the camera and came across Ilford FP5 black and white film which is what the call “true” black and white. True black and white film only captures black and white as opposed to regular black and white which captures all of the colors but processes them as black and white. The results are a rich contrast and really deep blacks. Shooting this film will require a little more thought as I approach each shot but I really like it. Here are a few scans from the roll

    I recently went out with my Canon AE-1 too and was really happy with the shots, working with film definitely does make you consider your shots more and processing them was good fun too. Here’s a link if you’re interested in having a look http://www.flickr.com/photos/clicksey/sets/72157629407254251/
