Rain-drenched guy

I recently added some new (old) galleries to my photo site.

I shot a bunch of Ilford HP5+ film earlier this summer, and the results have found their way into the Rainy Weekend and Shannon & Rob Wedding galleries. HP5 is a sort of legendary but low-tech B&W film. Although I am happy with the composition of these pictures, I am very dissatisfied with the combination of HP5+ film and whatever developer Colortek was running on their B&W line (supposedly Kodak T-Max). The results are much grittier and grainier than I prefer. Usually I do my own developing, and I always use either Ilford DD-X or Kodak Xtol.

I think this fall I will try something different: maybe shooting more color, or more chromogenic B&W film.

Can you believe it’s almost September?
