Developing Adventures – Pushing Ilford Delta 400 to 3200

Developing Adventures – Pushing Kodak Tmax 400 to 1600

Kodak Tmax was actually the first black and white film stock I ever shot with back around 2013 when I got back into film photography. It is a high contrast film, which isn't usually the look I go for these days, so I haven't shot with it much recently. However, I had a roll in… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Pushing Kodak Tmax 400 to 1600
