Introducing #FP4Party – celebrating ILFORD FP4+

Introducing #FP4Party – celebrating ILFORD FP4+

Sometimes things happen fast and sometimes they happen REALLY FAST. #FP4Party falls into the latter end of that speedy spectrum.

What started out as a few comments on a post of one of my favorite Ilford FP4+ photographs quickly turned into a bit of a gush-fest about the qualities of this venerable middling speed black and white film. Those comments ultimately found themselves turning into #FP4Party: a celebration of this wonderful film in all formats.

 

 

The premise of#FP4Party is simple: we love Ilford FP4+ and we want to shout about it.

The concept (nurtured between myself, Diz, http://emulsive.org/articles/save-the-planet-understand-film-washing-kinematics and Michael Bitaxi; and goes a little something like this…

 

Shoot a roll or sheet of Ilford FP4+ during the first week of each month and share your results on Twitter during the third using the #FP4Party hashtag and by tagging @FP4Party.

 

Really, that’s it. We’ll collect the best images and feature them right here on #EMULSIVE for all to see!

For the sake of adequate time to shoot (and the fact that some months start on a Sunday), we’re going to be using the first full week of each month at the starting point

Here’s the roster for the coming year:

September 2016
Shoot5th - 11th
Post19th - 25th

That’s it. Go stock up if you need to and get yourself ready. The inaugural #FP4Party is just around the corner!

Here are a few images to get you in the mood:
