A Unique Fail
October 30, 2016
On a recent shoot to Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, I wanted to experiment with a black and white film that I had not used before Ilford FP4 Plus 125, I was somewhat hesitant because I have read in forums from users that the results can be washed out without much contrast. However my fail was with the developing. I used a reel for 120 and I misaligned the film with the reel therefore when I developed it, parts of the film stuck together. It is a gut-wrenching slow motion of "oh crap", but some of the images that did turn out, I found the result quite intriguing. I shot this 2 stops underexposed.
My love of shooting film is more and more and hasn't wavered even with my fails. I don't know if I could ever replicate this with my digital camera. I definitely love this series. My take away and lesson learned? I need to make adjustments on my 120 reel and load the film correctly.
