I thought I would start a new series on here so that I could share more of my everyday photos with you outside of my proper reviews and articles. It will be several shots from a roll of film shot with whatever camera I am playing with that week. This week I wanted to share four shots from my Hasselblad and Ilford Delta 400 pushed to 1600.
I wanted to capture the sun coming in and casting lines on the plant by the window, and I knew that because it was later in the day, there would be a lot of contrast. I don’t shoot much Ilford Delta 400, but I love Ilford Delta 3200 shot at 1600 because it doesn’t add a lot of contrast. That dayI didn’t have any rolls of the 3200, so I hoped to get the same results by pushing Delta 400 to 1600.

While I do like these shots, it doesn’t have the same look as 3200 at 1600 for some reason. Pushing this film gave me the opposite affect I was shooting for. They have a lot more contrast. Below is a shot of Ilford Delta 3200 at 1600. You can see it’s less contrasty.
I’ve never really been a big fan of Delta 400, and for roughly $2 more, I will probably just stick to Delta 3200 and shoot it at 1600.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little “journal entry”. What about you, are you a fan of Ilford Delta 400? Let me know in the comments if you shoot with it or a Hasselblad.
Until next time, stay motivated and keep shooting.
