With great anticipation, I unpacked my order of 5 precious rolls of FERRANIA P30 ALPHA and ventured out to test this film.
These five photographs were shot with 35mm Rollei Retro 80s film using a Canon FTb and Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens. Retro 80s is an unusual film in a couple of ways.
I almost exclusively shoot on black and white film for the simple reason that I can develop and print it myself in the darkroom.
This film has very few of the attributes we generally associate with color reversal films, namely: fine grain and beautifully balanced vibrant colors.
This was from my 2nd roll of Lomography’s new Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400. I had shot my first roll in Malta and liked what it could do with colours.
