From Mark about the photo:
“First of all, thank you for all the people that voted for my image, it is very much appreciated. My wife introduced me to Northumberland a few years ago and we have been numerous time typically staying in Emblerton, however we stayed in Craster this time around. I have tried a number of times to capture Black Hole.
Well, the weather was stormy with crashing waves and rather than use a LEE Little Stopper, I used ILFORD FP4 PLUS with the meter set at 100 ISO and took numerous pictures ranging from 1 sec to 5 secs. I wanted to capture the drama and mood.
I moved away from digital a number of years ago, bought a Hasselblad 503CX and love it. It feels more like art. I love the unpredictability and not knowing if it worked until I have developed the negative. The images produced by film seem more romanticised and less clinical than digital. It forces me to work with the constraints of black and white and shooting 6×6. Historically I have gone with Kodak Tri-X but recently started shooting with FP4 PLUS, which I adore. I have tried to use HP5 and PAN F but still keep going back to FP4.”
Thanks again for taking part this year so far. There’s one final FP4 Party for 2019 and if you’re reading this on Sunday March 24th, today;’s the last day to post your results from this month’s shoot week!
