I have been holding off posting this, as some of the images I am using for neopantastic. As its post week, I don’t think it matters now.
The following was taken with my leica m2, voigtländer 35mm f/2.5 + yellow filter, with bergger pancro 400
The following was shot with fuji acros 100 and a oly mju ii.
Taken with Leica m2, voigtlander 35mm 2.5, hp5 @ 1600
On Monday we went to York, a yearly tradition; a pilgrimage for coffee, beer, books and trains. This year I took my Leica m2 with hp5 at 1600 for some snapshots and street photography.
I have been trying to catch up with my FMP work. Despite the stress, it’s getting there. I am currently in the process of material research, pushing film various stops and comparing them, and shooting both fuji film and digital fuji xpro1 for comparison. The similarities to the xpro1 black and white in-camera preset and the real acros film are very close despite the lack of grain and flatter contrast in the digital version.
With my leica m2 + a roll of fuji acros, I have been trying to find locations to continue a documentary on my town as well as use the time in Lincoln to shoot. I do like the film, especially for pinhole images, but its too slow. At the 100 ISO box speed for a winters day I struggled to find enough light with adequate depth of field and shot most of the graffiti images at 1/30th handheld. I much prefer HP5 at 1600.
Also, I wish I bought my m2 years ago. Without much thought, I picked it up and started using it straight away as these images show.
