I wrote an article about pulling Kodak T-Max P3200 to 1600 as part of my quest to find my go-to film for shooting everyday pictures indoors. I was not very happy with my results and I wasn’t planning on shooting with this film again, but then I found a few more rolls of it in my fridge and thought I would experiment a little more before I gave up on it.
Someone on Facebook suggested that I try using a flash with it and their results were pretty nice. I set up my Canon Rebel G with the Canon Speedlite 200E flash on the hot shoe and shot the film at box speed of 3200, and developed it in Kodak HC-110 dilution B at 3200 as well.
As you can see in these photos, the extreme grain is still there, but I do like the added brightness the flash gave.
Although I do like how these came out, for what I am looking for in an everyday indoor film, this just doesn’t work for me because of the amount of grain. Adding a flash didn’t really help that issue. I think next I will try shooting and developing a roll at ISO 800, which according to Kodak, is the nominal speed for this film. That will probably be my last try with this film.
If you would like to help me out with the cost of film, developing chemicals, and the upkeep of this website, please consider making a small donation. If you would rather purchase one of my zines, that would also help. Either way, I hope you have enjoyed my articles so far, and will sign up to get my blog in your inbox as I post them.
Until next time, stay motivated and keep shooting.
