Big & bold

These beauties are Newfoundland dogs and are often having a meet with their owners over at Mote Park, Maidstone England. This the second shot from the same roll of Fomapan 100 Classic film but pushed the ISO three stops. This image I haven’t done much other than removing a hair, the usual spots, slight sharpen and framed the picture. OK the Fox Hound in the background is a little burnt out but I think this is to be expected as I did meter for the black coats of the Newfoundlands. This may well be my go to film stock from now on.

Taken on my Leica M4-2, Summicron 35mm f/2 ASPH and shot on Fomapan 100 @ 800 ISO, developed in stock Kodak D76 at 20Âșc for 15 minutes.

A Quite Spot

A quite spot for carp fishing on the lake fed by the River Len at Mote Park, Maidstone, England. I have been trying out some Ilford HP5 which I had rated at 800 ISO and although I’ve use this film in the past, I had never pushed this film in bright light before and so far I am very happy with the results and somewhat cheaper than Tri-X.
