CineStill BwXX 250 | Canon AE-1 Program

Sometimes we make mistakes. Good, bad: it doesn’t matter. The following photographs were mistakes of a sort. Loaded iso 250 film in and, while thinking of Ilford 3200, I set my camera’s iso for the much larger number.

Dropping the roll off at Moonphoto lab and explaining the blunder triggered some counting on fingers…how many stops is that?

I’m not one that pushes or pulls film. What the box says, is what I do. Anyway, after this, I might push (or pull) some more.

The film is CineStill BwXX 250. Described as a classic black and white film stock that has been relatively little changed since its 1959 release. According to the CineStill website Raging Bull (1980) and Schindlers List (1993) were shot on the film.

This set is from a walk I did after dark in Ballard.
