The best of #SummerFilmParty June 2017

Welcome to the best of #SummerFilmParty June 2017, as selected by the #SummerFilmParty panel. Thanks very much to the team for their help in both manning battle stations and putting together their shortlists for each of the five categories:

  • #Landscape
    Nature or urban scenes, it’s up to you
  • #Streetlife
    It’s up to you to include people and or architecture
  • #Abstract / #FunkyAF
    No poultry unless absolutely necessary
  • #Home
    Shooting indoors or gearing up for a Kitchen Battle, this is for you
  • #Macro / #CloseUp
    Anything as close as your lens will allow

 

We had a little over 200 entries over the course of shoot week (12-16th June 2017) and aside from it being a tough call to see the 20 shortlisted images below, we also had to disqualify nearly 15% of the final tally due to ineligible films stocks being used.

This party, just like those that came before it are supposed to be fun, but we provided guidelines to try and focus in on slow, exotic, or other films stocks which are especially apt to shoot during summer months.

Any colour films over a native ISO 100 and all black and white films over a native ISO of 50 are welcome but won’t be counted in the final tally – unless the latter are developed as black and white transparencies, or by exploiting those films’ IR properties.

To clarify the 7 types of film stocks which are eligible for the post week currently in progress, as well as the third and final party in August:

 

1) Color slide film
Kodak, Fuji, Rollei, Agfa, Ferrania – new or old, if it’s a slide film, you can shoot it. You may chose #SayNoToXpro or #SayYoToXpro, it’s your choice.

 

2) Black and white slide film
Nearly any negative film can be developed as slides, so the world is your oyster. If you want to shoot a dedicated black and white slide film, you can choose between Efke R100, Agfa Scala 200X (see below), or ADOX Scala. The only caveat is that your submissions are developed as slides.

 

3) Slow black and white negative films (< ISO 50)
Rollei ATO and ATP (below), Efke 25, ILFORD Pan F, Kodak’s 5234, Technical Pan, or Panatomic-X, even Mikrat B – if it’s ISO 50 or slower, it’s accepted.

 

4) Color negative film (< ISO 100)
Kodak Ektar, Kodak and Fuji Motion Picture Duplication stocks, Cinestill 50D, Kodak VISION 50D, as long as it’s native ISO is 100 or slower, you can shoot it.

 

5) Black and white infrared
Rollei Infrared 400, Konica IR 750, ILFORD SFX 200, Kodak HIE and others are accepted as traditional slide films. You may also choose to shoot, Rollei Superpan, Fomapan, Rollei Retro or JCH Streetpan 400 with an IR. If it’s an IR sensitive film and was shot with an appropriate filter, it counts.

 

6) Color Infrared
The special stuff. We don’t expect many entries in this category but how could we not ask you to shoot colour infrared film? Kodak EIR, Kodak AEROCHROME, FPP Infrachrome or Dean Bennici’s Russian Color Infrared film are all accepted.

 

7) Paper negatives and plates
Oh yes, how could we forget? If you’re a fan of shooting paper negatives, glass/metal plates, even the back of 35mm film cannisters, you’re welcome to. In fact, since @SummerFilmParty straddles the summer solstice, we’ve got some news coming soon about an extended challenge for those of you who prefer to spend months making an exposure…
