Film review: ILFORD FP4 PLUS 35mm, 120 format and sheet film

If I want to shoot a film with buckets of character and great, deep contrast at a moderate box speed, then more often than not, I’ll be packing Ilford FP4+. It’s not my everyday ISO100-200 film, primarily because it’s not always easy to come by (more on that later!) but if I’m in the mood to capture something a little special in black and white, then this is the stock for me, no questions asked. Perhaps its something to do with plucky Brit mentality, or that they seem to be able to produce stuff that’s greater than the sum of its parts…I’m...

The photographer’s daypack – part 1: bare essentials

Spend an appreciable amount of time shooting and you’ll find yourself “needing” things to make your life easier. I’m not talking about GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome), but all those little accessories and gadgets you might feel will make your time shooting easier: hotshoe spirit levels, sports finders, masses of filters and those little soft-push shutter button attachments. All these items might seem like a great idea but add them all up and over time you’ll eventually end up looking like, or at least feeling a little like Data from The Goonies. There’s no suggestion that all these object are unnecessary, or that...

Here’s what Kodak have to say about this film:   KODAK PROFESSIONAL TRI-X 320 and 400 Films are high-speed panchromatic films that are a good choice for photographing dimly lighted subjects or...
