This picture was an attempt by me to make a grungy type of photo with side lighting and printed on very hard paper. I made a mistake with the film developer and used only half strength developer so negs were quite thin. But as it happened it aided the result.

Image file is scan from 8 by 10 print

Camera was a Pentacon Six and the film Ilford Pan F

  • Thanks Danielle the photo came out just as I imagined it. Medium format film is very forgiving.

    Thanks Kostis. The pic came out just as I wanted it. Nothing beats film yet. This was shot in medium format.

    As an aside your politics are I think very similar to mine.

    Judith thanks for looking at my work and a compliment from a photographer like yourself is very much appreciated.

    I love your style in recording street scenes and the people in them. This is a type of photography I am hoping to do more of so I appreciate your skill. One thing I have to develop is courage hehe
