Ilford Delta 400 | Rollei 35 S

Back from Moonphoto comes this weeks scans: Ilford Delta 400 shot with the Rollei 35 S.

The first three shots are architectural. Two from Ballard, including the first one of the award winning Ballard Library, and the third a building on the campus of Northwest Hospital.

Other writers have gushed about this film. I won’t go that far. My favorite black and white film is probably the Fomopan 100. But I may have been misusing this film. With the high, bright overcast sky, my pictures seem washed out a bit. I’d like to see more inky blacks; more charcoal.

But the following are acceptable to me. Especially the second and third.

Discovery Park | Ilford Delta 400 | Canon AE-1 Program

I haven’t used Ilford Delta 400 before. But there are favorable reviews here and here that spurred my interest.

I loaded my Canon AE-1 with the 20mm lens and went to Discovery Park on two separate but cloudy days. There was even a bit of rain.

My first pass at these, I wasn’t that impressed. But going through them again and finally selecting a few for posting here, I think this film is a worthy addition to my rotation.
