Second film

The second roll of film to be put in my trip was Ilford FP4 Plus ISO 125.  It was purchased as a birthday present and put into my camera in November gone during a trip to Cornwall.  I was surprised by how well the shots had come out considering I always seem to forget to switch settings back to auto for the aperture after someone has had a play.  I absolutely love the high contrast of these images and can’t wait to purchase another roll.  Using B&W film has also made me think about purchasing the kit so I can develop my film at home, as well as using bulk film for the flexibility of being able to choose how many exposures you want. 

Lessons learnt

Get images digitised when developed or a 36 exposure will cost you 11.99 or alternatively will eradicate a Monday evening.

The start of my journey…

During summer I picked up a refurbished Trip 35 which I absolutely adore, I picked up my first roll of film (Ilford XP2 Super 400) and started shooting. It was an expensive test exercise as half of the shots didn’t come out due to low light levels. Hopefully my hit rate will improve as I get the hang of the focus ring.  

Lessons learnt

1. Don’t develop film at Tesco’s.  A two week is just totally unacceptable.

2. Don’t buy film and Snappy Snaps.  £9.99 is extortion!
