2019: Roll 3

8 thoughts on “2019: Roll 3”

  1. I was wondering if you ever tried the Agfa apx.it looks good on a Flickr search I made and I find it cheaper here than ilford or Kodak. I’ll try it out..

    1. Iโ€™ve tried it a couple of times. At box speed it looks okay but pushed any bit and it falls apart pretty quick. Since I shoot everything at 1600 / 3200 it isnโ€™t really an option for me. Kentimere actually even does better when pushed.

  2. Really liking the new and more regular postings, especially with each film roll as a unifying theme! A quick question: do you use a ND filter when youโ€™re rating HP5 at 3200? Thanks.

    1. A great question, and no I don’t. I haven’t put a battery in my camera in years. I kinda go with how the roll went. I start most out thinking they will be 1600. Sometimes if I end up going to 3200 (in my brain) I’ll develop somewhere in-between. Luckily with monochrome film there is so much latitude in this regard. For this roll anything outside was generally shot at f11, 500/1000. I don’t shoot much on super Sunny days.

  3. Purging out all images but 40? Sounds very challenging to me, even more as I tend to reevaluate my images years later very differently and I wouldn’t like to risk loosing images to an too agressive purge… but I like the concept ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. For me, it stops me from living in the past. It stops me from relying on old photos. I have a similar rule about processing digital photos. For the longest time I’d time myself and if a photo took more than 45 seconds to process I must have fucked it up in the first place so I just delete it. No matter how much I like it. This really helped me to not be careless. Not to mention the fact that I don’t much care for that part of the process. I like to make one preset and just use the same one over and over. If I’ve done a good job taking the photo it should be just fine ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyway, not saying my style is for everyone but it certainly helps me with my own mindset.

  4. I’d love to see a video about your blogging workflow (with mobile)! Unless of course, you have already made a post about this which i have looked over

  5. Minimalist shooting, maximalist annual editing…
    I’m not sure about the latter. Contact prints teach a lot even long after the roll was shot. If anything, they will show your shooting approach, which is already minimalist indeed… ๐Ÿ™‚
    As you press the shutter so relatively infrequently, your success ratio is unbelievable. I’m not talking technical success, I’m talking ‘memorable image’ success. Josh-Josh images, let’s say. In this roll, I can count nine that are you-you and highly evocative. Out of 36, that’s 25%, hey not bad!
    Which ones? Well, my personal edit runs like 3-4-8-9-11-14-18-19-25….
    Looking forward to roll #4!
    Take care
    Giovanni
