Today was a bit of a personal challenge. To shoot an event, develop, scan and post a blog post in day, did it work?! Yes! Sort of…
There were many hurdles, I only had 2 rolls of 35mm and 1 120, neither really suitable for the lighting conditions. (FP4 and Delta 3200) I loaded the FP4 first as planned to shoot outdoor events first, however many were indoors – I decided to push to 400ISO which helped a little. Then when it came time to loading the 3200 I was shooting outside! With only 2 frames left when reaching my final venue, wishing I had more is an understatement.
In future I’m going full HP5 for content like this.
Next up was the dev. As I had 3 rolls of different film all pushed/pulled the dev times were all different – this meant it took nearly 2 hours to get them all done – not ideal when trying to work on a deadline. The drying time without a film dryer was excruciating – but gave me chance to have some food!
Scanning time also felt slow and I used this lost time to prepare this blog post.
So, here it is, hope you have enjoyed the photos and a little bit behind the scenes of the process of making them.
