Developing Adventures – 34 year old Kodak Plus-X 125

A while back, a reader sent me a couple of rolls of expired black and white film. One was a roll of Kodak Plus-X 125 that expired in 1988. That is only one year after I was born! After my great experience with a roll of Kodak Pan-X, I was excited to give this one… Continue reading Developing Adventures – 34 year old Kodak Plus-X 125

Very often, I express this through still life photography. I'm not sure exactly what it is about this form of the medium that helps me to… Continue reading Still Life and Expelling Grief

Developing Adventures – Kodak Tri-X with Kodak HC-110 and Ilford DD-X

I purchased Ilford's Ilfotec DD-X on a recommendation to use when I was pushing film, such as the time I pushed Fomapan 400 to 800. I've also purchased Kodak's HC-110 to develop Kodak films such as Kodak Tri-x and TMax. I just like the look these pairings give me. However, I wanted to see if… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Kodak Tri-X with Kodak HC-110 and Ilford DD-X

Developing Adventures – Pushing Arista EDU 400 to 800

In this Developing Adventure, I will share my results pushing Arista EDU 400 to 800. In my Arista EDU article, I spoke about this film being similar to Fomapan. However, I have since learned that it is indeed a rebranded Fomapan Action 400. Freestyle Photo created this film as an affordable stock for students.

Developing Adventures – Ilford HP5 400 Pushed to 3200 and Night Photography from My Car

I did an article about pushing Kentmere Pan 400 to 800 and shot some photos at night from the car. I was actually really surprised that anything came out. I thought I'd try pushing HP5 to 3200 in the same setting to see how it compared. I was again surprised to see that there wasn't… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Ilford HP5 400 Pushed to 3200 and Night Photography from My Car

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
