It has been several weeks since I wrote about my first attempt at film development, and even though that experiment did not quite work out, I keep going back to those images. Finding, surprisingly, that quite a few of those images held their appeal. Perhaps that should not be so surprising after all. Shooting again with film I found my photography to be more deliberate. More thinking and consideration went into each shot, so it stands to reason that a higher percentage of those shots would be keepers. Would be, that is, if the development was done well. Still, given the choice of subjects, quite a few held up to the high noise level that came with the rather extreme digital pushing needed.
This image was taken at Nymans Gardens in West Sussex in late autumn last year, with my EOS Elan II and the 50mm f/1.4 lens. Film used was Ilford Pan F Plus at its rated 50 ISO exposure index.
