Victoria's Light

I was given three 100 foot rolls of 1990 expired (freezer kept) Agfa APX 100 35mm film. These shots are from the first roll. I developed the roll using a recipe found on the net: Rodinal 1:100 for 20 minutes, agitate the first 30 seconds then a gentle agitation every 30 seconds. I shot the images with a Nikon FM3a and Nikkor 105 f 2.5 lens. I exposed sometimes using the meter and other times not. The image in the restaurant of the chef and tomatoes was shot at a very slow shutter speed hand-held, a deep breath shot. Many of the images lacked contrast and unfortunately I had to fiddle with them in Lightroom. For the next roll I will try a different developer and use more care with exposure. Regardless, I got a few pleasing images, and here they are.

35mm Film Shootist

Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 & M3 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life. My film of choice now is Fomapan 100 Classic.
