I spend a lot of time and I’ve taken hundreds of photos at Carkeek Park. A few weeks back, I tagged along with my daughters who were working on a school project and brought my Canon loaded with some CineStill 800.
800 ISO film is usually grainy. Too grainy when it’s color. But with the winter darkness coming (here) I was (am) looking for higher speed color options.
CineStill 800 might be that film. Not too grainy. Skin tones were fine. The yellows glowed a bit (in a good way).
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.
